    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. A lot of the guys were fun to work with. Made some good friends. Learned a lot.

    Just like everywhere else you can get some bad drillers or tool pushers. If you work through them you will find a crew/rig you like and can make a good home. Politics on some crews was bad.

    Advice to Management

    Talent needs to be more of a deciding factor when promoting employees instead of politics and who is buddy buddy with management.
