    I worked at Exterran full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was great opportunity to operate in a true PMO structure within the oil and gas sector who have largely not adopted this practice. Worked with many talented individuals who were supportive team members that I still keep in touch with today.

    Cons

    We were led by unorthodox leaders, one left the organization soon after the assembly of the PMO and contract with the client, the other was terminated over a performance issue and questionable practices which led to the premature dissolution of the PMO as the client lost confidence. This left a number of employees who relocated both domestically and internationally in major bind.

    Advice to Management

    Be cautious who you allow other management to "bring in" without an objective evaluation by a multi-disciplinary team from upper-management and frontline employees. It's easier for the incumbent to misrepresent themselves as they are only accountable on paper which is easily manipulated.

    I worked at Exterran full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Good group of people though many have departed. Incentive comp package was decent back in the day but has been eliminated for most.

    Cons

    Bloated Human Resources Department more appropriately sized for Exxon Mobil still surviving and thriving, soaking up SG&A dollars like Donald Trump soaks up sunshine. Anybody with a real (non-HR) job outside of the senior management ranks is vulnerable to being replaced by a cheaper model.

    Advice to Management

    EXTN Stock Price Performance ( last 52-Wk) is -48.46% You obviously don't have enough HR staff at headquarters.
