    I worked at Cudd Pressure Control full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Office was clean and well-lit.
    Used SolidWorks, MathCad, Risa3D, Teamwork, Asani, Microsoft Visual Studios.
    Able to start projects and work on them independently.
    Co-workers were young, driven, and looking to make an impact in the company.
    Use of company-provided truck, cell phone, and laptop were nice perks.

    Cons

    No professional development.
    No performance reviews.
    No raises.
    Not allowed to work remotely (even though given cell phone and laptop)
    No flexible hours (even though no time sheets are filled out)
    Poor communication from management on direction of projects.
    Poor communication from management on department standards.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire engineers fresh out of college and expect them to excel in a corporate environment when they have little to no field experience or corporate office training and development. Empower them and train them so they can work more efficiently on their own, instead of always having to go through their corporate engineering manager.

    Also, don't hire engineers out of college and expect them to be technical writers - that's a headache for everyone. Engineers who've been working for 10 years probably can write much better because they have seen more real-world technical documentation while working.

    The department would have gotten more projects completed if management had not tried to micro-manage the engineers to the point they are reduced to administrators. There was no support or trust from management to allow the engineers to work as they see fit.

    Also, as an equipment engineer group, you should train your engineers to be able to run any piece of equipment as well as analyze for improvements. Keeping them in the corporate office and having to rely on phone calls to districts helps absolutely no one. Let them travel and experience the equipment they are supposed to be setting standards for.

    I worked at Cudd Pressure Control full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    CUDD was a great place to have been employed. I was there for 10 years and all of my coworkers were like a second family. If you asked me I would recommend CUDD to anyone looking for a Job in the Coil Tubing Industry.

    Cons

    As to all Jobs there are some cons to working at CUDD. Mainly in just the years that I was employed there, the only cons were pay decreases and having to spend weeks away from the family. So given the line of work, those cons are kind of expected at some time or another.

    I have been working at Cudd Pressure Control full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, family atmosphere, co truck, phone, laptop fairly descent euipmemt. In district management really looks out for their employees in every way they can

    Cons

    Up until recently there were none until upper management and VP's decided to cut bonuses completely out without giving any compensation for putting in 60-90+ hours per week. Instead of ALL employees taking a small cut they decided to cut the people that are out there making THEIR money also.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management-think of person who's not only out there making their money but making your money as well, and putting their lives on the line every day to do it.
