    I have been working at Exterran full-time for more than 4 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.

    I worked at Exterran full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Focused on safety; spends money on developing employees, and has different career paths available.

    Cons

    If you've been with the company for some time your salary isn't increased accordingly to market conditions. Hires too many people outside of the industry which creates problems with "PROVEN" ideas not working out as planned.

    Advice to Management

    This review is a bit old but it seemed that they could increase merits based on market conditions. There are also too many managers and not enough workers. Could look at reducing overhead.

  3. "Great experience for entry level engineers."

    I worked at Exterran

    Pros

    The domestic and international experience is probably the best reason to work for Exterran. Don't expect much of an offer though. I would recommend entry level engineers to work for a couple of years there. After a couple of years, I would recommend taking your valuable experience else where.

    Cons

    Low pay and raises where always an bummer. The buddy buddy management is scary.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees.
