    I worked at Superior Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees were great

    Cons

    Communication needs to be better. Communication between upper management and lower management is very unclear at times. Environment is not as laid back as most Oil & Gas companies.

    Advice to Management

    When someone is working hard show them and tell them that they are she's trash

    I worked at Superior Energy full-time

    Pros

    For the Corporate employee in Houston, gernerous compensation and benefits package, pristine ivory tower setting, everyone has their own office.

    Cons

    Elitist, good old boy culture. Company Holiday party is only for the "select" who are invited, not for everyone. Little to no diversity in staff or thought.

    I worked at Superior Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was at market, nice facilities, and people were nice.

    Cons

    I wasn't there long enough to learn a lot of the cons because I was laid off in under 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    The traditional office environment needs to be shaken up. Many people come to work, do not speak, and go home. There was nothing fun, exciting, or challenging about my experience here.

    I worked at Superior Energy full-time

    Pros

    There would be potential for the company to do great things...However, they are resistent to change...though they attempt to attract talent by promising growth potential and opportunity to contribute to major growth initiatives.

    Cons

    Growth initiatives are non-existent. More interested with seat warmers...no honing of skills, not interested in utilizing the abilities newcomers have to offer. Nothing changes...no one is willing to promote change and progression. Very antiquated and behind in terms of industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Do no exaggerate growth potential ...be honest about the reality of progression within the company. Be honest when attracting potentials for your org.
