    I worked at Core Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to begin your career as this provides loads of experience and opportunities to learn and grow with the company. Work is appreciated and a semi-formal workplace setting with supportive colleagues and comradeship.

    Cons

    Renumeration, benefits are zilch and gossip are amongst the few things you have to live with.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put all your eggs into one basket.

    I worked at Core Laboratories full-time (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.

    Cons

    Unprofessional management behaviour. If someone takes a grievance to local management they will cover it up and label them a trouble maker. Fluids manager will regularly go into huffs and shut his office/blank staff in corridors.
    Mix of terrible supervisors and great supervisors. The good ones actively encourage younger staff to "get off the sinking ship", the bad ones will try to use their staff as scapegoats for their own mistakes and have been spoken to by HR for frequent workplace bullying.
    Low pay for lab positions, even skilled and hard-working staff will be passed up for promotion in favour of management favourites.
    Bare minimum holiday entitlement and no flexibility in hours even during oil downturn.
    Expected to do supervisors job when he has no clue what he's doing.
    Much of my 5 years spent there was training new staff due to experienced staff leaving when refused reasonable pay rises.

    Advice to Management

    Prevent high staff turnover and retain the good lab staff by offering pay rises at a lab level. Senior management enjoy yearly bonuses exceeding the cost of entire departments whilst low paid, skilled workers have went 3 years without any merit increase. Many lab and office staff deserving of at least a raise in line with inflation, if not more for achieving incredible results during the oil downturn.
