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

    Pros

    In the engineering department, the work was continuous and challenging. The building had good facilities and the atmosphere was generally good. The people were the best part.

    Cons

    Since the downturn, there is a lot more stress and pressure to do work increasingly faster. There are little perks or incentives apart from keeping your job, which they can't guarantee. Rumours and worry plagued the office for over a year.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more open about redundancies. It is easier to face risk when it is tangible

    Pros

    Good team, work-life balance, progression to mid management level and good pay. If you want to stay in one job position and get annual salary increment not worrying about job roles, Expro is a good place.

    Cons

    The downside is there is lack of progression to Executive level as the Executives are almost 15-20 years in the company. The company makes several changes in very short time and try to become something which it is not. The processes are not consistent and there is a clear lack of integration between systems and departments. There is no defined career path, appraisals exists without purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Bring fresh throughts into Management, Rotate people across locations and job roles. People become complacent after holding a position for a long time and when more people of similar profiles form a team, politics ensues. I hope the management can see this and do something about it.

    I have been working at Expro (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing honestly, my life's worst days.

    Cons

    The group engineering team leaders & managers are such idiots, know nothing other than taking credit of others & ditching them. Few of them are perverts & will harass you if you are a female. The colleagues are such nasty people, will talk behind your back, never help you, rob, cheat, disrespect.

    Advice to Management

    World's worst management. No brain.

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

    Pros

    Expro is an enlightened company in terms of human resources policies, access to training, professional development, salary, etc. Also every time I have dealt with our senior (as opposed to middle) management I have been impressed.

    Cons

    I am asked to do so many unproductive activities such as attending meetings, producing presentations and reporting on progress that I often finish the day having achieved nothing useful.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend organising a management away day, spending it watching the motion picture Office Space and then re-organising Expro so it less resembles the company in the film. If Expro was more efficient it would be a great company.
