    I worked at Core Laboratories full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fellow lab staff are incredible, some of the best people I have met in my life. Some higher paying companies see Core Lab training as a positive.

    Advice to Management

    Prevent high staff turnover and retain the good lab staff by offering pay rises at a lab level.

    Pros

    Easy money if you do not have a degree

    Cons

    If you have a degree, do not waste your time here. There is not growth opportunity at all and they can fire you anytime of the oil does down.

    Advice to Management

    Management staff are very disorganized and will not teach you how to perform work correctly.
