    I have been working at drillinginfo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people. If you ask any current or former employee what the best part about Drillinginfo is, they will tell you the people that they work with. Like every company there will be those that you may not get along with 100% of the time, it is a very close company that resembles a team environment.

    There is a lot of opportunity for upward movement within the company. Further there is a lot of opportunity for movement to various areas within the company.

    The work environment is very relaxed yet high energy. They love to work hard and play hard.

    Cons

    PAY. Very simply the pay is below average for both the tech world as well as Oil and Gas. It is also below average for Austin tech companies.

    Turnover. The turnover is much higher than any other company I have ever seen. Employees with more than 3 to 4 years seem to be the longest tenured people you will find.

    Constant reorganization. If we are being honest with ourselves here it shows an obvious issue with leadership at some levels.

    Advice to Management

    Get the pay structure on par with other tech companies. Having exempt employees that do not earn what is defined as a livable salary by economic standards is an issue, and one that must be addressed.

    Be very vigilant of not becoming complacent with regards to tilting the game toward favorites within the company. With such high turnover you run the risk of losing valuable people and letting the nails that don't stick out just keep getting by.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at drillinginfo.

    Interview

    It basically starts with an online general comprehension test and then a personality test. If you make it past that, you get the in person.
    At that point I met with the current team, a project manager, the QA Lead and the QA manage as well as the lead software developer. I fielded general questions on in software testing and my personal experiences.
