    Pros

    Safety oriented company, was able to advance quickly through a variety of jobs. Good management for the most part, gained a lot of experience. Was a small shop and everyone seemed like family.

    Cons

    Pay could have been better, my location in Tulsa was relocated due to the drop in oil prices. All employees were laid off.

    Pros

    Good employees and work environment.

    Cons

    Pay not competitive with peers. No bonus for deserving employees. Management focus on share holders as opposed to effective business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions for business enhancements and market share increases as opposed to all decisions being investor and Wall Street focused. Build the business as what it is oil and gas services.

    Pros

    Company is very entrepreneurial in nature which can be pretty aggressive

    Cons

    Company has been like a gambler betting on different business first it was Iraq then Mexico and then the US Frac. All of the above did not work well. Company needs to develop people to do multiple tasks by imparting them skills. Company is too top heavy-Every new idea from top is a new support position. Very low chances of development-All VPs and Directors are poached from somewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the Managers, VPs do not have their ear to the ground which is not allowing them to take the right decisions.
