    I worked at Patterson-UTI Energy full-time

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. The pay and the time off are definite perks of the job, but the skills learned are also very valuable.

    Cons

    The oil and natural gas industry is a very volatile industry to work in. Job security is not always guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep policies a little more constant. One of the most difficult parts of the job is simply trying to keep track of what you'll get in trouble for.


  4. "Oil Company"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Company will typically pay very well and give out good benefits. Vehicles and gas cards are provided for all supervisor positions.

    Cons

    As with all service companies, when oil prices fall, jobs become very unstable. Some supervisors are very hard to work for but that is to be expected.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Using new methods of employee recruiting and training, as well as safety standards and expectations to provide extreme efficiency in workflows and an unmatched safe working environment for drilling crews. Provides leadership training conferences for all employees. Making great strides to enhance management functions to improve employee relations and accountability at labor sites.

    Cons

    Promotes employees to crew leadership by length of service instead of those that exhibit leadership attributes. Due to nature of industry, the upper management is typically far removed from actual rig sites, allowing for unsuitable management practices on rigs, as well as lack of reporting of issues and accountability of rig managers and crews.
