    I worked at Dawson Geophysical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is great, and you get to travel with the company and see many new and beautiful places.

    Cons

    Being a young female working for this company is basically asking to be mistreated. You work with a bunch of men on the road who are away from their wives and have no idea how to act around a woman or treat them in a professional manner. I had to put up with so much harassment that I ended up quitting to remove myself from a potential bad situation.

    Advice to Management

    When a female complains to hr that she is being mistreated and harassed, believe her. Don't threaten to fire her because of things that some field supervisor told you she did, when in fact he is the one harassing her and threatening her job.
