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

Pros

New people in key positions making positive changes. Company is good to the employees and has a relaxed environment, where we can have fun and still get the work done.

Cons

Company doesn't always understand what value some of their employees can add and limits career growth of those employees as a result. Company doesn't pay as well as others in the industry.

Advice to Management

Value the contributions your employees can make and promote them to the appropriate roles for their expertise and experience and pay them accordingly for the value they will be providing in those roles.
