    I worked at INOVA Geo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic company with lots of opportunity for travel and good for self driven employees.

    Cons

    Difficulty adapting to the sudden decline of the upstream oil and gas business. Parent company of this joint venture has written down all value of the company and will not provide any additional capital support. They are on their own to do or die. Too many worldwide locations that they just can't afford to have.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt or die.

    I worked at INOVA Geo full-time

    Pros

    - A handful of very talented individuals. (Engineering)
    - The ability to network with other colleagues.
    - Establish long lasting relationships with co-workers, customers and clients.

    Cons

    - ZERO training.
    - Dishonest executive/upper management
    - No room for advancement.
    - Skeleton crew running entire operation, everyone is a one person department.
    - No succession planning for "older" employees.
    - Inability to let people go that are bottle-necking operational success.
    - Too much outsourcing resulting in embarrassing failures.
    - Non-technical staff that are incapable of accepting responsibility for mistakes.
    - ZERO certified Quality Control personnel on staff.
    - Sales are in a downward spiral due to ignorance
    - Soon, everything will be moved to China and Canada, then INOVA will be consumed by CNPC.

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you're ahead, just like the smart ones who have already jumped ship.

    Tight knit group. Lots of smart engineers.
