    Pros

    Precision looked out for employees and helped with growing personal education and training.

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. This might have changed since the downturn in oil prices, but at the time, they were the most generous drilling contractor in this respect.

    Cons

    Experience on rigs can vary widely. Lots of rigs owned by this contractor, so safety and morale on individual rigs can change alot.

    Pros

    Upper Managment and Executive Management are all Canadian and only believe in doing things the canadian way despite where they are actually at. Can't get ahead without being from canada

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and location. Some upper management is okay, but most need training. Ok starter job but not a long term career.

    Cons

    Tons of office politics. Many employees are not trained properly due to incompetent management. Favoritism is definitely used when people are promoted, and is not based on their actual skill level in some departments. They are constantly getting sued for not paying employees their proper overtime pay among other things. Human Resources is a joke here, avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that actually knows what they are doing and are well trained.
