    Pros

    No one micromanages your work. They're pretty good about making sure your unit is stocked before sending you out. Decent enough benefits. Health insurance is available and 401k after a year.

    Cons

    Most of the cons are just normal parts of rig life. Being called out to rigs at the last minute, things like that.

    Advice to Management

    I think DWL tries to do right by their employees, for the most part. I would say that management in Reserve could stand to be more organized and on top of things. And the woman in accounts is always rude.

    Pros

    Good folks work in Reserve. They need to see first hand what is going on in Texas. Surprise visits would be a good start.

    Cons

    Operations do not support field staff or clients. Too busy planning hunting and fishing trips or playing golf.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on you operations people in Texas. They lose too much work for you.

    I worked at Diversified Well Logging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Liked the people that I worked with. When there was work I was busy and I knew my job was secure. Plenty of work when the oil prices were up.

    Cons

    Software and Hardware need to be updated. There are to many systems that could not allow me to be quicker with my information and it was because of the old hardware.

    Advice to Management

    Update the Computers and other things in the units. This will make the work more efficient.

    I worked at Diversified Well Logging (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a job. They have health insurance, 401k, and a $25,000 life insurance policy if you die on the job. You gain experience working as a mudlogger. Good people overall in the group. They don't live in the logging units. Instead you either live on location or in a motel. They pay 40 hours a week plus 44 hours per week as overtime (1.5 times the regular pay).

    Cons

    Old, shop built equipment. They do have 8800 and 8900, as well as SRI equipment. It is difficult to get and keep the equipment up and running. It is not shock mounted so when it arrives to the job site it may or may not be working. Techs always blame field people for the broken stuff and resent coming out. Most of the time the equipment and instruments show signs of suckling mud on the last job assignment. It's obvious it was not repaired or properly checked in the shop. They just power it up and if the light comes on they don't look any further. A lot of people think $12 to $20 an hour is good pay, but if you have a degree that isn't very good pay. A lot of their loggers never obtained a degree. It is hit and miss with coworkers, especially those that don't have a geology degree, which does not do much for their accuracy of their logs and knowledge. Their managers work 7 days a week and they run the field supervisors around until they are exhausted and confused.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and have family life balance. Pay the loggers extra for all the add on extras (live logging, calcimeter, isotubes, pictures, etc.)

    Pros

    Job that pays money, living accommodations are nice, most of the people I worked with were great

    Cons

    Equipment never works, make empty promises, only let friends work and ignore more qualified people, disorganized, benefits are horrible

    Advice to Management

    Hire people based on their qualifications and don't lay off someone who has a master's degree and keep people with a high school diploma. Get some equipment that works and doesn't break on every job.
