    Keep employees in the loop.

    I have been working at Keane Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on your camp, generally the experienced EO's and Supervisors are excellent to work with, and have a good report with each other. Pay is similar to other companies.

    Cons

    Who are they? What do they want to be? This company has no direction for their mission statement (which there is none). Basically, just another 2nd tier frac company. (Big Red and Big Blue lead in technology).

    Advice to Management

    Treat your field personnel better, and define clear objectives of what the company is good at. You won't beat the big boys in technical aspects; what's left? Service. And from what I see, their clients are becoming more and more unhappy with the growth compromising quality of service.

    I worked at Keane Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not much... if I had to come up with one it would be that we were paid every week. But no, Keane Wireline in New Stanton, PA is a clown show

    Cons

    Not sure where to start... the equipment is trash. It is not taken care of in the least bit. The support staff is non existent. The communication is laughable. The management is made up of men who may have possibly drew straws to pick their positions. There is no chance of advancement. The company is a running joke in the oilfield. The Frac side is okay but the wireline side openly laughed at. But hey, if you like having no vacation/ no work truck for supervisors/ and 3% of the stage bonus, this is the place for you lol

    Advice to Management

    Admit that you are in way over your head and quit so the company can turn around

    I worked at Keane Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is competitive and the orientation was informative and safety oriented.

    Cons

    There are quite a few but I will try to be succinct. I would swear that vacation was offered in the phone interview but found out it actually is not. Management is a joke, and the good leads are not appreciated from what I have seen. The number of different pieces of equipment isn't just daunting, but also extremely unprofessional, it's like they went and bought pumps from auction with no regard for trying to keep it in the same family of software and hardware. The benefits package is just sad, there is no sick time either. The mentor program is beyond shallow, hardly any of the employees have more than a few months experience. They modify hours without any sort of permission and expect no repercussions. They promise the world and deliver a huge stinking pile of manure. Save your time and look for other companies there are plenty frac companies that will treat you much much better.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of the problems are in the management so I have zero advice for them

    I worked at Keane Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive wages would be the only redeeming quality for the company

    Cons

    The company is managed by instilling fear into their employees. Employees are terminated for making mistakes/injuries, and training is less than poor, there-by placing the blame onto the employee and not management.

    The company tries it's best to skirt regulatory requirements and hid the truth from customers in order to generate revenue at the expense of the employee.

    The different service offerings are in silos and there is no communication between departments, or management ownership and accountability for operational items.

    The executive team is disconnected from reality and has a habit of mandating overbearing policy that sets employees up for failure.

    In closing, Keane is the worst example of an oilfield service company that I have ever seen! The COO is a complete idiot with a very abrasive personality that brags about how many employees he has fired throughout his career.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management is to take ownership of your problems, get rid of the COO as he is doing more harm than good, and change your culture to retain employees rather than continue operating with an 85% attrition rate!

    Pros

    Competitive compensation. Experienced professionals. Strive to make the best out of inconvienent and unfavorable situations.

    Cons

    Experience, voice, and work ethic of employees are not noticed or overlooked. Those that should not be promoted are depending on "good faith" even if incompetent. Nonconformist views and decisions are overlooked, ignored, and looked down upon even if they are the right choice or reasonable. Limited opportunity for career growth depending on position.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the ideas and suggestions of your employees. Their experiences are priceless to the growth and expansion of the company, and should not be left unheard. Only service quality can keep work and everyone wants to stay working.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ghosts in your own closet. Grow a set before you fire for no reason...Better yet fire in your own department. Start with Paul d-nobonus
