    Pros

    good people to work with. have met a lot of good people through this company. not a number and have a good relationship with management.

    Tough times in the oilfield right now. day can be long and sometimes away from home for long periods. its the oilfield and things can get worse very fast

    dont forget your field hands are people and not robots. things arent easy right now but we all need to do our best

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. The work was consistent and the pay was great, and the work was close to home

    Cons

    The work is steady and good until there is a downturn and lay offs happen quickly. Not a consistent line of work.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Loyal and fair. Higher pay than competing companies. More stable work location; more time at follow me rigs.

    Cons

    Nothing specific to the company, only the industry. DD's run the show, yet are not your boss. They can try to transfer you to another rig for un professional reasons that would make an HR rep cringe (outside the oilfield).

    I worked at Crescent Directional Drilling full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    very easy going company with a lot of dedication to its valued employees. good benefits and holidays. Very flexible with family and other life events.

    Cons

    not much for advancement so many people stay in their positions there is not much room for others to advance into other positions. limited areas to work is the only other downfall.

    Pros

    Small company, lots of work.

    Cons

    Most of management are great folks, but a few are excessively undiisicplined, inconsistent, unpredictable, and unprofessional. Poor performance is not effectively dealt with and quality, reliability, and safety suffer as a result.

    Advice to Management

    If you have not SERIOUSLY considered developing core values for your company before, do so now and then measure everything that you do to them. You have a great opportunity to bust out and become a perennially top rated small company. Don't waste that.
