    Pros

    Good working relationships with customers, co-workers and people in other departments.

    Cons

    Senior management is contently brought in from big name companies from the outside that have no experience with our products or customers. Good employees are purged with each new management change. Moral is constantly low and our customers and employees are the ones that suffer. What could be a great company implodes on itself because of very senior management at Greens Road.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the people who really care before you started downhill with outside management in 2011.

    I worked at Canrig Drilling Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of overtime pay, but only because you work 12 hour days, 28 days in a row. Great if you're trying to pay off student loans and don't care if you're laid off with half the company.

    Cons

    Lack of management. Completely unorganized. High turnover. Management disrespectful to employees. Their method is rapid hire and fire. Their direct supervisors are puppets who do as they're told irrespective of what's right or wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Have some integrity.

    Pros

    Pay day is on Friday

    Cons

    Unrealistic delivery commitments. The shop is too busy putting out fires caused by sales group and engineering to concentrate on manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    Quit pushing lean manufacturing until you fix the upstream process. You can't be lean if your​ parts are being farmed out too the lowest bid. If sales commits delivery dates without shop involvement we can not succeed.

    I worked at Canrig Drilling Technology part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None unless you live in the land of made believe.

    Cons

    To many lies and to much nonsense, dml management is a joke. They kept only the people who follow this one mudlogger who doesn't know nothing and everyone else with skill or with experience got remove. They kept the sheep's. This mudlogger appears to run the show and management follows with out question. So many negative things to say, the wise thing to do is stay away from this company unless you want to be disappointed or you're into failing at life.

    Advice to Management

    Look into your system before someone drops the hammer
