    I worked at Boart Longyear full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global company with opportunities, but it is in cost cutting mode. They had a great CEO, but he was let go. There could be opportunities here, but they a slim and far right now. Good pay for a tough work environment.

    Cons

    Always cost cutting and laying off folks. CFO seems to run the company. Do not underestimate the senior mgt politics, as they are brutal at Boart. No sense of company culture. You me be on the "in" to get raises and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are your best assets, treat them better with respect. Get rid of the fear based management style. Do not promote individuals into jobs they are not qualified for.
