    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement and personal development are very good. I was lucky and had outstanding supervisors and leadership.

    Cons

    After the Exterran / Archrock split all the good things got lost. I should have gone to the Archrock side.

    Look up the definition of "Management".

    Pros

    Exterran is a good company to work. They are flexible in many areas including in and out schedules and occasionally working from home.

    Cons

    There are some work redundancies because the current system does not allow users to switch from one screen to another maintaining the same information. There are also few manual processes they are currently trying to overcome.

    Advice to Management

    I believe management is moving in the correct direction, considering where the company was ten years ago.

    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

    Benefits are decent. Can't say a lot of good as of late. The company has so many people in management that there's no one to do the work

    Cons

    With downturn, morale and caring about the employees has gone downhill. Upper management cannot agree on anything. The offices are stuffy and filled with people in fear.
