    I worked at Superior Energy full-time

    Pros

    The people are nice to work with.
    The location is not in a super high-traffic area, so it's relatively easy to get to work.
    It's not a company that expects you to live and breath for work, which is nice.

    Cons

    This is probably more of an industry feeling, but there was definitely a feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Who's going to be laid off next?
