    I have been working at Exterran full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Working with the best equipment in the fleet gives you the ability to maximize man hours and reliability. Be expected to have the tools required to do the job yourself.

    Cons

    Too top heavy and focused less on the employee than they should be. Ever decreasing reliability with human resources. Benefits are disappearing.

    I worked at Exterran full-time

    Pros

    Exposure to various natural gas engine OEM's and compression equipment. Decent place to learn, but you'll soon leave as you'll tire of the BS and Business Unit Directors that will lie to your face in a company meeting, while trying to save face with corporate i.e., cutting worker hours in a district that has plenty of revenue...

    Cons

    This company used be known for training people by sending them to OEM training so you could improve your knowledge and your career. The pay is not competitive with the industry average for compression mechanics. As referenced above, Business Unit Directors (not all of them) but some will push the Area Managers to starve employees on hours- even when GPM is strong and the company is making money... Stay away from this...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your field hands / mechanics with respect and not as though they are blind to what's going on. They're not as dumb as you probably would like to think so... Company use to at least guarantee 40 hours a week which is an oil field standard, but in some districts that promise is no longer the case... Compression mechanics aren't a dime a dozen, when the industry bounces back you will not have enough talent and or...

    I have been working at Exterran for more 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.

    I have been working at Exterran

    Pros

    The benifits are great. Overall Its a good place to work I don't have many complaints and would definately recommend Exterran.

    Cons

    I can't coplain much about job. The only time I was not happy with my job was about a year ago when the company had a layoff and everyone was unsure of there job. It left everyone feeling uneasy and tension was very high.

    Advice to Management

    One piece of advise to management would be the to stock more parts at the shop. This saves time and money.
