    I have been working at Precision Drilling full-time

    Pros

    Can't really think of anything at the moment but will edit my post at a later date.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities, and leadership is not great at all. Everyone seems really confused about everything from pay to policies to what day it is. Hard to do your job when procedures for one task change daily.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who have actually been managers previously

    Pros

    The people are really friendly and the job was fun.

    Some Project Managers micro-manage which needs to be fixed

    I worked at Precision Drilling as a contractor

    Pros

    The working environment was okay. The team I was apart of really worked together well.

    Cons

    Management treated us like we weren't humans. There was a lot of closed door dealing and they kept us out of the know.

    Pros

    Good people. Good training facility in Houston. Great pay and benefits and good equipment to work and train on. Good opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Not an aggressive company in that they do not keep on people who try to work hard and show initiative. They tend to keep people with more seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the area management in finding which employees to keep working and which to let go. Also stop trying to cut cost in the maintenance and cut it in overhead in the tech center.
