    Pros

    Fun job with really interesting travel.
    Plenty of chance to use your own initiative, but very difficult to feed improvements back into the system

    Cons

    Never were quite big enough to ride the boom and bust of the exploration cycle or even
    Quite a bit of management turnover.

    Advice to Management

    A bit too late. Seemed to try to shoehorn the company structure into their previous seismic reporting lines. Needed to get staff together more.

    I worked at ARKeX (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work at with good salary, benefits and work life balance. Excellent colleagues with diverse background.

    Cons

    Dependence on technology which has taken too long to develop. Always need external funding to stay afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Re-invent the company under different Avatar.

    Pros

    Challenging and rewarding work
    Employing the cutting edge of technology
    Positive, family type culture
    opportunities to grow personally and develop professionally

    Cons

    Its a start up so the job security is always at the back of your mind
    It's a small team so there's no hiding

    Advice to Management

    Continue exactly as you are, don't change a thing about how you work with your staff and how you grow the teams confidence
