    Great people, some turbulence with executive leadership team

    Drilling Engineer (Current Employee)

    ConsCan be difficult to transfer within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide better direction, less ambiguity. Focus on employees more.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Decent company to work for, but at the low end of industry compensation packages.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany younger people in management, making it a relatively casual work atmosphere. The company tries to give a lot back to local communities.

    ConsRanks low in industry compensation packages; lower pay and less vacation than competitors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees; we have good ideas but don't have management (and especially upper management) support in implementing them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsYou'd like it if you want to work for a group of kids with no leadership skills and basic knowledge of the industry. Or if you like to show up every day unhappy.

    ConsVery inexperienced management. Benefits. Jobs completed way over budget. No structure.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
