    Pros

    Plenty to do. A "Target-Rich" environment if you are looking for opportunities to showcase special skills. Contributions toward process improvement are well-received.

    Cons

    Publicly broadcasting dissatisfaction is something that I consider to be bad practice. No workplace is free of opportunities for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Time to break down barriers so we can get some work done.

    Pros

    Great products for the industry

    Cons

    Poor leadership specific to COO for Canrig. It is all about him. Business has gone down since his appearance in the business.

    Go somewhere else

    Pros

    Great benefits, great coworkers, okay pay

    Cons

    Need to work on how the company treats their employees, don’t let you off in case of family emergencies, pay scale isn’t great

    Advice to Management

    Work on how you treat your employees, they are human and not just a number or asset to your company

    Pros

    Standard benefits, interesting work, on site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Bad Management, especially in IT.

    Advice to Management

    If most carpenters worked the way my previous manager did, they would be like, ugh, a hammer? I have screw that I need driven today, I need a screwdriver not a hammer. Throws hammer in the trash and walks away.

    Pros

    It is a steady job with a company who has been around a long time.

    Cons

    15k people is a very difficult place to make a difference, I don't know what some people do all day. Things move very slowly.

    Make things easier for employees. I should not have to waste half a day after putting in an IT request to get my work done.
