    I worked at Purple Land Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    it's just a paycheck not much more

    Cons

    if you have any sort of higher level degree and/or a law license, this is not the place for you. my interview right out of law school was promising with promises of quarterly reviews and the ability to, based on having my law degree, transition from contract employee to full time employee after 3 months - that happened 2 & 1/2 years and 4 different managers later. the office is basically a giant daycare center full of noisy children pretending to work. my particular office was full of people right out of undergrad with the following degrees: Fashion Merchandising, Restaurant Management, Journalism, etc. trying to work at the same level as the handful of us with advanced degrees in either law or specializing in oil & gas. the undergrads would be hired in by the droves at the beginning of the season and slowly their numbers would dwindle until it was a few serious employees doing the work of a whole office. management would always say that they were taking my concerns seriously, but that was difficult to swallow when there would be a new manager each quarter with the previous manager before having been fired and there being no follow through from one to the other. i was constantly told my work product and accuracy were exceptional, but that seemed to fall on deaf ears when i asked about the possibility of a raise or more responsibility within the organization.

    Pros

    Purple is a great place to get your foot in the door. Bigger company with a lot of different projects going on. Meaning there is plenty of opportunity to work different projects through out different plays. If you are looking to gain experience and get started this is the place to be.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    I worked at Purple Land Management for more than a year

    Pros

    If you know how to review title, read documents, etc, working at Purple is a simple experience. If you’re ambitious it won’t go unnoticed. If you just want to do the same old thing, they’ll let you keep doing it as long as you don’t mess up.

    Cons

    You really have to fight to be noticed. Contractor pay is definitely below the industry, even when in a downturn, but the work is steady.
