    Pros

    Great leadership and management teams. Employees give their all.

    Employees are overworked. CEO lacks engagement with employees. Poor communication with employees in the facilities and global offices.

    Advice to Management

    Potential to be a great place to work. However, lacks company culture. CEO to engage and communicate more with employees.

    Pros

    Andrew (CEO) and senior staff are GE and running a great company in the ground. No respect for anybody but are making a fortune on everybody else.

    You preach core values but fail to live by them.

    I have been working at Exterran full-time

    Pros

    Focuses on Training and developing key people.

    Cons

    Gone are the days of fun, healthy environment. Stressful most of the time. Since there was a change in Management, everything changed to the worst. Long time serving employees lost their engagement and motivation and on a high interest to leave and look for better job.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the 'human' in Human Resources. Long Service employees stayed for a reason and they are assets to the success of the company. Change is good but DO NOT forget the contributions of old employees has done. Treat people as 'people' and not things that you can replace anytime you want to just because.

    I worked at Exterran full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good group of people though many have departed. Incentive comp package was decent back in the day but has been eliminated for most.

    Cons

    Bloated Human Resources Department more appropriately sized for Exxon Mobil still surviving and thriving, soaking up SG&A dollars like Donald Trump soaks up sunshine. Anybody with a real (non-HR) job outside of the senior management ranks is vulnerable to being replaced by a cheaper model.

    Advice to Management

    EXTN Stock Price Performance ( last 52-Wk) is -48.46% You obviously don't have enough HR staff at headquarters.
