I have been working at Exterran full-time (More than a year)

Pros

My coworkers were fun to work with and my supervisor was flexible and reasonable. I learned a lot working with the other teams.

Good place to start, not a good place to build a career.

Cons

No mobility within the company. Management smiles and nods with palpable apathy toward employee input.

Raises and promotions are far and wide. Benefits are mediocre at best.

Large projects are rushed and result in a lot of contractors being hired on at a moment's notice with no input or participation from tenured employees.

Advice to Management

It costs more in both money and lost productivity to hire and train new employees rather than throw a little more toward your current ones. Lack of employee input in projects makes working at Exterran feel like an exercise in futility and frustation, as employees lose out on career building opportunities.

    I have been working at Exterran full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It may be a large organization but you can get to know a lot of people and make many professional connections.

    Cons

    There are times when I find upper management's incompetence annoying. They hire people from overseas rather than people from America. Want to move up the ranks?...it probably won't happen.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Your best are leaving.
