I worked at Parker Drilling full-time

Pros

There was god opportunity for advancement. It was a small company, so you could experience more.

Cons

Limited workspace and lots of overtime. There was always an expectation that when you left you were available to work from home. If you were working for the right person, the opportunity for advancement was there but there was no official review program so hard to make it unless part of the in-crowd. Small company trying to be bigger so seemed to be slowly forgetting about the importance of keeping its people happy.

    I worked at Parker Drilling full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company with friendly employees. Very trusting in the ability of their people. Decent compensation and benefits, Rotation is standard.

    Cons

    Tend to put the cart before the horse and I don't think that some of the people put as much into work as they should on behalf of the employees.

    I have been working at Parker Drilling full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Parker Drilling has a long history, but it feels like a place where even new employees can help to make a big difference in the way business is done. If you are willing to work, and you care about your results, you can go far in this company.

    Cons

    Not as many corporate events as I would like where employees can blow off steam and get to know each other outside the office.
