Negative Outlook

I have been working at Smith International (More than 5 years)

Pros

Opportunities for overtime. This is a good place for a starter in the oil field

Cons

Promotions are based on who you know rather than your knowledge and what you can bring to the table. Raises are a set amount for every individual so work ethic is irrelevant. Whether you learn new things or just do the bare minimum, everybody gets the same raise every six months.

Advice to Management

Invest in your work force and reward employees who go above and beyond the requirements. As things stand, there is no incentive for anyone to do better than the next guy.
