    Great place to work, friendly colleagues, learning opportunities.

    All changed when they got acquired by GE. All went south from that point.

    Promote the right people (especially on the abroad entities of the company) to help the company move forward.

    I worked at Lufkin Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had the chance to work with some really good people over the years and was able to gain some valuable experience.

    Cons

    The good ol boy system is well established here. It is very difficult for even the best of employees to advance unless you are part of the click! Also, after the sell-out, job security is a thing of the past.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open minded to giving capable employees the chance to advance, even if they aren't in your "click".

    Friendly working environment. The entire team was highly engaged.

    Career opportunities were more about doing your job for a long time rather than advancing upwards.

    I worked at Lufkin Industries full-time

    Pros

    The work was interesting and the management was nice. Upper management was easy to talk to. 401k, insurance, and pension plan was good.

    Cons

    Salary was not very competitive but there was not much competition in the area. The cost of living in the area was below average so that made the low pay not as bad. I've heard things have changed for the worse since the GE buyout.

    I worked at Lufkin Industries (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company was big but small enough to know their employees. The rating below are for Lufkin Ind!! 5 stars all for LUFKIN..not GE

    Cons

    When bought out by GE Oil & GAS, the changes did not benefit the needs of the company.I dont believe Lufkin expected the way it is now being ran.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember we all have to start somewhere. Take time to train your employees the proper way. It will save time in the field and save down time.

    None. They'll hang you out to dry.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people
