    I worked at Exterran full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    when there is work to be done you can easy put in 60 hours. That is good and bad. very clean and neat. safety is number 1

    Cons

    i was there for almost 3 years and never got a raise. When you need to leave early, managers look down on that.

    Advice to Management

    look at the people who work the hardest and reward them

    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.

    Pros

    As a company, they really value safety and place a high significance on empowering all level of employee to make safe decisions and to look out for their fellow employees.

    Cons

    The company as a whole is far to top heavy. Even with the industry downturn, the company has brought on more VPs and created new VP positions.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to their employees, and recognize the contribution that key employees make that greatly contribute to the company's success

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

    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.
