      I worked at Helmerich & Payne full-time for more than 4 years

You are waiting for a lawsuit and, from what I saw, H&P won't be the one on the winning end if someone does decide to sue.

      Pros

      Great pay very good safety highly recommend h&p they are great and will take care of there workers if you are willing to put in the work!

      Cons

      My first rig wasn't the best was stuck with stupid leaders so they made jobsite unsafe and unpredictable as long as you get sent to a good rig with good pushers and good hands you'll be perfect.

      Advice to Management

      Pay more close attention to who you have in charge and a little more attention to detail on rigs safety.
