    Pros

    I can't think of a company with a culture that is so inclusive and makes you want to be better. From my first day, my bandwith has been stretched to see how much I can handle. There is no shortage of people willing to help you get better and push you to your limits. The CEO regularly walks around the offices with no reserves and makes you feel like you're the only person in the room.

    Cons

    Things can feel a bit disorganized at times. I don't know that it's a con though. Through the lack of structure ideas are born to make it a better place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, I haven't worked for a better company.

    There is no bus stop and it is a little to get to unless you take the highway.

    Have some more team building exercises for employees.

    Pros

    Great pay, career oportunity, awesome CEO and Executive board members, neat perks, great benefits, business casual, interesting field

    Cons

    Like in every workplace there is office politics, but tattletales, bully's and gossip make for poor team moral and an award vibe..

    Advice to Management

    Push for better team moral. Friendly peers make for a happy atmosphere thus better focus

    Pros

    I enjoy working on new projects and having the freedom define my own workflow. The GIS department offers a flex schedule which I enjoy.

    Cons

    The fast pace of drillinginfo demands that you keep producing at top levels and there is no shortage of things to get accomplished. This can be overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue keeping employees happy with incentives and rewards. This is highly appreciated and I always look forward to the new initiatives coming to the office. Also, keep communication flowing so we know where the company is headed too!

    Pros

    - great people
    -encouragement to better yourself and your career
    -there's a reimbursement program to pay for classes
    - senior management tries to make themselves available by meeting with employees through lunches and walking the floors
    - encourages self-starters and innovators
    - bright and open office

    Cons

    - cross-departmental communication needs to improve
    -lots of growing pains
    - salary is low for industry
    -

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on fewer products and improve communication between all of the product teams. They can become black boxes to each other and cause problems that the other teams are unaware of.

    Pros

    Business casual working environment / Work - Life Balance

    Cons

    Other posts have mentioned bullying, office politics, unorganized departments, low wages, etc. That about sums it up.

    Advice to Management

    People kissing up to you and making you feel good about yourself should be left within your personal network. Basing promotions / major decisions for the company off of these "feelings" you have for people is one reason you keep losing revenue. The other reason is that more acquisitions does not = more value to your customer base.

    Pros

    great people, awesome environment, amazing flex schedule.

    Cons

    you must be a self starter. They do not hold your hand in training, just give you the basic tasks and its sometimes up to you to find the information to fill in the blanks.
