    Pros

    Good Pay & Benefits package, lean structure that makes decision making processes a lot quicker than other similar companies. Good lean and experienced leadership team. Healthy & non bureaucratic company.

    Cons

    As a relatively new company formed through inorganic growth, little travel knowledge is shared among the different business units, systems & processes are in infant stages & people don't seem to know where to find information... MO is still that of a medium sized company. Not really any notorious Cons for a company of this size & age, and the effect of the market it pertains to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the trend!

    I have been working at Forum Oilfield full-time

    Pros

    Forum has a relaxed atmosphere and the people are nice to work with. They pay well as well.

    Cons

    The managers do most of the work, leaving little work to do for the staff. When working with other locations, there doesn't seem to be a sense of urgency either.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more work

    Pros

    Interned twice previously for this company in addition to my current position and have enjoyed it every step of the way. Great opportunities to learn and enhance your knowledge of the oil industry. Love the company atmosphere in the office also!

    Cons

    It is obviously a bad time in the oil field so there have been many layoffs, but that is happening everywhere.
