      I have been working at Exterran full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      People are mostly great, the ones who are still here. Lot of people leaving that have been here a long time, because change in management and change in direction hasn't proven to be the most successful.

      Cons

      Everyone is overworked and pushed to their limit.

      Advice to Management

      Start listening to the people and valuing them again rather than having the outlook that all people are dispensable. Cut the political crap and put the people in place who know how to do the job, rather than holding on to friends. Consultants are brought in to highlight problem areas, however no one ends up listening to what the consultants say and problems don't get fixed.

      I worked at Exterran full-time for more than 20 years

      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.

      Advice to Management

      Look up the definition of "Management".

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

      Pros

      Management has great ideas and are working hard to fix everything in the Company to get us back on track.

      Cons

      Doesn't like to promote from within Pays well under market averages for roles, and refuses to give real raises Must get an offer from another Company for them to increase your salary Many groups are severely understaffed so you have to do the work of multiple people Training is a joke/nonexistent Technology is lagging

      Advice to Management

      Change is great, but you need to work on retention, and work culture.

      I worked at Exterran full-time for more than 9 years

      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.

        "Constant state of flux"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at Exterran

          Pros

          Family atmosphere. Flexible work schedule. Generally speaking, people are well intended and try to do their best. Good product offering

          Cons

          Massive changes happening, little to no room for growth. All new hires seem to be friends of senior management and come over from the previous employer.

          Advice to Management

          Promote from within
