      Pros

      The 9/80 work schedule is awesome. The base pay and bonus are both solid, especially given the state of oil and gas. The work is pretty easy and management doesn't push too hard on individual contributors.

      Cons

      Starting at the very top, senior tech leadership is weak. It's an old school industry and the tech it deploys is old school, too.

      Pros

      The people are great! Friendly and very willing to help teach new comers.

      Cons

      Focused too much time on maximum optimization with slightly unrealistic expectations. More time filling out paper and computer work than doing actual job

      Pros

      A lot of great people and great supervisors.

      Cons

      Job moved to Houston. In the end there was a lot of creating busy work and reporting to management for their meetings, instead of focusing on the tasks at hand.

      Once a great company to work for, now cares little about it’s people.

      Pros

      There are still some smart, friendly and hardworking people around. Benefits are good, although they have been cut in recent years (long term incentive gone for lower grades for example).

      Cons

      The current leadership of the company has taken advantage of the power they have had during the oil market downturns and pandemic to create a “lucky to have a job” mindset. Culture of finger pointing. People development is no longer valued. Company strategy is reactive, resulting in low employee buy-in through all levels. The company promotes leaders who are the loudest voice in the room and most ruthless with their staff. Not a lot of diversity among leadership both in style and composition.
