I worked at Scientific Drilling full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great work, lots of travel, were very loyal to staff (Minimal lay offs during down turn). Whilst behind SLB, Baker etc... in terms of technology it is progressing rapidly and should present aggressive and capable competition to lower budget operations e.g. land-based operations.

Cons

Lot of time away, short notice. Poor pay scaling system. Slight uncertainty among staff as to the longer term future but things do currently look good.

Advice to Management

Good work.
