    I worked at Leam Drilling Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At the time of my employment, Leam had so much work going that you could basically sign your on paychecks. Excellent place to get a year of experience.

    Leam does not value training its employees.

    I worked at Leam Drilling Systems full-time

    Pros

    Leam offered good benefits including health insurance and bonuses. They also had nice people on staff. They were serious about helping their employees succeed.

    Cons

    They gave me long hours with little time off, therefore making their employees susceptible to being burnt out. Although long hours are expected in this field, other companies gave more time off.

    Advice to Management

    Management was very cut throat towards their employees. There are different ways to address issues. They should find a way to get employees more time off because work-life balance is crucial to the productivity of employees.

    Pros

    LEAM will keep you working. Probably more than you want to. Show up and do your job, you will get promoted quickly.

    Cons

    Pay is low enough for hands to consider leaving for more money.

    Advice to Management

    What management??

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Leam Drilling Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Will hire with no experience. If you are new to the oilfield you will make pretty good money. You will always have work.

    Cons

    No truck allowance, No gas card, Low pay rates, Working 300+ days a year. The max you will make is about 120,000

    Advice to Management

    Need to increase the pay so the good hands don't leave. Also need to train new hands better so they can learn faster

    I worked at Leam Drilling Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Will bring you right off the street without any oil field experience. Treated much better if you make it to Directional Driller. Learned a lot (only reason for 2 stars). Survived

    Cons

    Most of the time did not provide with all equipment to get the job done. Had to scramble around to other rigs to get equipment. Run used tools from other jobs as new turned tools. Treated MWD field hands like disposable commodity.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate to give better heads up when going out for jobs. Strive for better work/life balance. Treat MWD hands better.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    RTV tools good. Motor were good. APS tools were junk.

    Cons

    If you're not from Louisiana you might want to apply elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your better directional men & weed out the dopeheads & alcoholics.

    I have been working at Leam Drilling Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close to home, able to move up within the company, good work environment, easy to communicate, overtime, work schedule is easy to work with.

    Cons

    Work has slowed down due to the oil industry not being at its peak. Money hasn't been the same because we don't work as much as we use to.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with workers more often.
