    I worked at Contango full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees at one time cared about the company and its future. They worked hard to keep it afloat. At that time the company was a great place to work...

    Cons

    Management seems to be running the company into the ground. They overlook the elephant in the room and focus on the minutia. There has been a shift in the ethics of the company in that they allow one of their VP's to berate the employees by yelling obscenities at them. People at the top should never have to raise their voice much less shout obscenities. This toxicity spreads to all departments because no one at the top would take up the torch to stop it. When the employees had enough of it, they either left or pushed back. The ones that pushed back were then labeled troublemakers and were made miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Read the book The No ________ Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't
    by Robert I. Sutton (OCLC: 154698708).

    People at the top should never have to raise their voice and shout obscenities at its employees. This would be a great place to start to repair the company and bring it from the depths. Unfortunately this will probably never happen or it will be too late. I see this company being either ran into the ground or being purchased and all their assets being consumed and the personnel being let go like so many other small oil and gas companies...
