    Pros

    One of the top oil and gas services company - so opportunities are unlimited.
    The team that I am working with is wonderful. Every engineer is very knowledgeable and always willing to share knowledge. The team leader is great and he respects every member in the team equally. Even though some times project priorities change it is due to genuine reasons and I have never witnessed dirty politics so far.

    Cons

    Only two weeks of paid vacation for employees working in the company for less than 5 years.

    Advice to Management
