    Pros

    A few good mid-level management folks do what they can to keep people around, but are constrained by corporate policies. Most people in the field are good to work with and do what they can to make life bearable.

    Keane will keep people working longer during a slow down than what most will.

    The engineering side still has some benefits, such as having your own hotel room, but most of the time the hotels are the cheapest ones the company can get.

    Company recently began offering PTO, which is great for the hourly guys but offers no benefit if you're a salaried employee.

    Cons

    Corporate policies are making it tough to compete with the company's peers. As the company grows the situation gets worse for the blue-collar worker. There seems to be no research into what other service companies are doing to keep people, and certainly no actions taken to make it an attractive place to work. For most employees there is little formal training, and for those that have it available to them, the training leaves something to be desired.

    The operations side will fire somebody at the drop of a hat. This promotes a culture of fear, and creates the situation where nobody will make a decision without first calling the office for approval. Even new employees won't do any work without asking a supervisor if "it's ok."

    401k/health insurance/benefits package are slightly below the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of developing policies that take money away from people, try paying employees MORE money. You'd be amazed with how the turnover rate changes.

    Develop training programs that compete with the big guys, since Keane wants to be a major player.

    Replace some of this old equipment with new stuff, and don't cheap out on it.

    Don't forget what it's like to work in the field.

    Pay is good compared to non oil field jobs in the area.

    Take some classes on management, and get organized.

    Pros

    There are a few consistent customers. Field coworkers are decent.

    Cons

    Complete lack of a structured training company, regardless of the position.
    Continuous creation of new middle and upper management positions that have never been critical to operations.
    An horrendous work culture created by a complete field-office disconnect.
    Constant HR issues being covered up by district level management.
    Family and friendship ties moving unqualified and incompetent individuals into positions where they are incapable of making informed decisions.
    Pay and overall compensation packages (PTO, 401K, Insurance, bonuses) below similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    We need to move away from this “top-heavy” and disconnected structure that has been created since 2017. Stop dumping money into redundant charts and systems that you are not fully committed to using. Connect with the people who are actually out doing the work and making the money. Stop taking away money in bonuses. Look to see where all of your experience is going, other service companies.
