    Pros

    The majority of the company was very close knit and friendly. Corporate atmosphere with family-like attitudes towards one another. Most of the employees had a company tenure of 10-15 years minimum. Was able to build close relationships and learn a lot from the employees.

    Cons

    When the company was purchased, many people loss their jobs and it resulted in a sink or swim work atmosphere. Was not able to build a relationship with many employees because of what was going on with the company buyout.

    I have been working at CETCO Oilfield Services full-time

    Pros

    Company pays top wages for the Louisiana area. They base their salaries on a national wide survey of titles. This company offers great benefits.

    Cons

    I've been employed with this company for a long time. This company has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years. The company was like a small company with great benefits when I first started. Everyone doing their jobs and everyone getting along. However, with the rapid growth of the company, hiring of new management because of the growth, politics has played a big role now in the company. It is not all about your experience, knowledge and what you have to bring to the company but it is whether or not the manager likes you or not. It is happening across the whole organization and it is a shame to see this happen.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be looking to make sure that there is no discrimination going on with these supervisors against some employees and favoritism towards others. A job should be based on skill set, experience and knowledge of the job and not whether or not the supervisor likes the employee or not. When a supervisor is doing this, then this supervisor is being very unprofessional. A supervisor that is demonstrating this behavior should either be trained on professionalism or should be removed from that position. This reputation is not good for the company, it's employee moral and the quality of people who will be working for the company in the future. This environment has already allowed questionable personnel to be hired by this company.
