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

    Pros

    99% of the employees that are not in management or related to the former CEO Klibert are great people.

    Cons

    No salary increases in 3 yrs.
    Employees were asked to take a 8% cut in pay.
    Did away with contributing to 401k
    High price medical insurance.
    Management is horrible and overpaid.
    One particular employee will not help you because he wants job security.
    Will lay you off with no warning.
    No severance pay for years of work.
    Constantly laying off and hiring people

    I have been working at Diversified Well Logging full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Okay to gain experience out of college

    Cons

    The pay structure has been decreased during the industry down turn so much that it makes working 84 hours a week completely worthless. The companies motto is that yeah you might make 60k in your first year at dwl but you will sacrifice your entire life in order to do so. There have been times where I have worked 2, 3, even 4 weeks in a row with 0 days off and the very day I get off I get a call from management telling.... not asking... me to work on another rig. 3 years in the company will get you nothing but heartache. There is no ladder that you can climb only false hopes. Once you make it to geosteering you have maxed out your opportunity here. If you have loved ones you like seeing don't even consider this job.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about the people and not the bottom line. Restructure pay and actually give people the money back that was taken from them 2 years ago.

    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 have been working at Diversified Well Logging full-time

    Pros

    You can make decent money if you are willing to work 12+ hour shifts away from home for weeks at a time.

    Cons

    Work is not steady. There is no seniority. Management allows their "pets" and "crybabies" to pull good assignments regardless of seniority, while more capable or qualified candidates (and the ones who don't complain) have to take the less desirable assignments. Little room for advancement. Raises are skimpy if you get one at all - get your money up front. Health benefits are terrible (an expensive Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan that doesn't cover much)

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to quit treating the field employees like second-class citizens.

    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 full-time

    Pros

    Fairly good pay, and plenty of work when business is booming. You get overtime and paid every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    Depending on your manager, life could be easy or really bad. If you are a good worker, you won't be released or get vacation. Poor workers may not get called in, which is fair, but it puts a strain on those who pull their weight.
