    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?

    I worked at Superior Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great employees to work with... Ok benefits... Employees were like brothers and we all worked together to get pumps, tanks, blenders, etc. ready for offshore jobs

    Cons

    As I said above, the yard supervisors were a big downfall, mainly these two that stick together and are the last ones there now which puzzles me... They would lie and be conniving to your face... I'd give it to the head one, he wouldn't mind getting dirty to complete a task... But the other one mainly sits in the office and literally WATCH MOVIES ALL DAY.. Ridiculous... Don't know how he keeps his job.. Probably by throwing others under the bus.. Got rid of real productive employees

    Advice to Management

    Shouldn't have to give advice, you all should know who's productive and who's not

    Benefits, awsome people to work with, management is great. Hours were good till they cut them.
