    Pros

    Wonderful company and co-workers! The only reason for leaving was there was no housing in ND and living in an RV man camp in Williston was horrible. My manager, Marlys was AWESOME!!

    Cons

    At the time, Williston, ND was having a serious housing crisis, you could not afford an apartment and the only place to live was in our RV in a man camp-HORRIBLE!Can't really think of any except they are incredibly busy! And incredibly busy is a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    None-they are doing things right.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, decent pay with ok benefits. I enjoy working with the people there and my boss is pretty nice too. They're understanding and willing to help out someone new.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Some of the upper management don't seem to want to move forward to newer things. No bonuses or any type of incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees, especially the ones that have been there and put time in. I see people leave because they aren't given what they're owed.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, Keurig machines (awesome!) filtered water, vending machines, potlucks, holiday celebrations, etc.

    Cons

    Boring, repetitive work. A lot to learn. Management didn't use employee suggestions for improving processes. Everything covered in red tape. Hope you don't break your leg or have other mobility issues while you work there. You may still have to park a block away from the door. They will not grant you any sort of closer parking pass. Either get there before everyone else, park a block away, or be permanently handicapped so that you can get a handicapped placard from your doctor.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front-line employees. They're the ones who do the work every day. If they have a suggestion to make the process better, smoother, or more efficient, why not try it? Also, why not make a few temporary handicapped spots for people who break their legs, etc?
