    Smaller drilling company, more personal, less "red tape". Nice gym

    Great place to work, we were like family, everyone worked together and shared the workload. We spent time together after work, and got to know one another personally

    Keep on taking care of your people

    Pros

    Good values that they hold true to. Upper management not afraid to mingle or listen to the "little guy".

    Cons

    Some politics, just like anywhere else really but not terrible. The entire industry is corporate style, so when things get tough they will cut the cord. Not great on promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe put some more effort into a "promote from within" mentality.
