    I have been working at Scientific Drilling full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady work and user friendly tools.

    Quality field employees that are easy to work with.

    Good insurance and 401k benefits.

    Cons

    Terrible pay.

    No work/life balance.

    Everyone acknowledges that the oilfield requires time away from home but the amount of time spent away is ridiculous at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Get competitive with the rest of the directional market with pay.

    Take care of the field employees and get them time off.
