  1. "Great place to Work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Citation Oil & Gas full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The group I worked in was close knit and very supportive

    Cons

    CFO and CEO were never seen, probably only knows the name of their secretary and the people they work with most. For such a small company I am not sure they know more people than management

    I worked at Citation Oil & Gas

    Pros

    -gym membership -flexibility -vacation and personal time -insurance

    Cons

    LOWEST pay in the industry!!! Management does NOT know how to manage, and should probably take management courses. Upper management brings “friends” to do jobs they have no knowledge in. If you want to work at a place where you are unappreciated, over worked and stressed this is the place here. Citation will suck the life out of you if you let it. This place is know as a “training ground” for those with no prior oil... and gas experience, but no one ever stays long, they move on to better. Which explains the HIGH turnover rate. Raises and bonuses if even given are a JOKE! Just do yourself a favor and stay away from this place. I wouldn’t wish working at this place on my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your ppl and treat them right, then maybe you wouldn’t have such a high turn over rate!

    I worked at Citation Oil & Gas full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flex schedule Convenient location Family oriented Consistent workflow Some very nice employees Some appreciative supervisors Some hard working supervisors Gym membership

    Cons

    Absolutely no training Management not held accountable for wrong doing or misuse of company time Extremely under market compensation Interns are trained & treated better than employees No room for advancement unless someone quits or retires Understaffed in some departments Outdated industry databases

    Advice to Management

    Executives should come out of their office suite more and perform random pop-up visits to their department managers/supervisors offices. You have a department right up under your nose that is very bitter because their supervisor is barely in the office (blatantly abusing company time). Whenever she is there, she’s either in the hallway talking for 30-45 minutes at a time, or on her cell phone not working but... receives all the perks and praises for the 5 hours of work a day she’s put in (no exaggeration). CEO & CFO should be more engaging with their employees; at least smile or speak to us whenever we do cross paths and not make us feel like peasants.

    Pros

    Relaxed management Gym membership Flexible schedule Great work/life balance

    Cons

    Low Pay Getting a raise is rare Little opportunity for advancement No bonus packages High employee turnover

    Advice to Management

    Pay is very low compared to other oil & gas companies. If you reward employees for their good work, they will stick around. This is definitely a short term job.

    I worked at Citation Oil & Gas full-time

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere. You learn a lot about onshore drilling and the different types of state laws that regulate what you can and can't do.

    Cons

    With the median age being so high, it is hard for you to get recognize for your own accomplishments in the company. Salary raises are very hard to come by. Does not give you room to grow and learn different areas of your selected work field. Very strict on time.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your own employees. Give them room to grow within their position and give opportunities to learn new things.
