      I worked at Leam Drilling Systems full-time for more than 2 years

      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.

      Cons

      Leam does not value training its employees.

      Neutral Outlook

      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.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Leam Drilling Systems full-time for more than 6 years

      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??

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Leam Drilling Systems full-time for more 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

      Neutral Outlook

      I worked at Leam Drilling Systems full-time for more than 2 years

      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

      I worked at Leam Drilling Systems

      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.

      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.
