    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.

    I have been working at Exterran (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Promotions are available to those who work hard. The company is growing, and is ever evolving, so there are plenty of chances to move up.

    Cons

    Every organization has issues, none that can not be brought to light and worked out. This coming company is experiencing growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Pay special attention to your field service techs, we are the reason you have a job.
