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

    Pros

    Work/life balance is great. Friendly people. Enough variety so you're not doing the same thing every single day. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Massive layoffs, salary freeze for two years "to prevent more layoffs" followed by - you guessed it - more layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they're worth. The recovery has started, and the exodus of good employees seeking higher salaries has started too.

    Pros

    There are no pros in the IT department right now.

    Cons

    Management is awful, generally have no clue what they are doing other than creating a toxic environment. I was told managers actually watch all employees even those that don't report to them to see when they are arriving and leaving. Change control process is a joke. Too much time spent on monitoring activities that aren't reviewed by auditors. Not enough time spent actually helping the business become more efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Quit because none of you are good at your jobs.
