    Pros

    Off half the year and get to meet alot of competitors so you have a chance to find a better job

    Cons

    Management is corrupt and more focused on lining their personal pockets then making actual smart business decisions. Don't see them making it to much longer...

    Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians!

    Pros

    Plenty of equipment and good benefits if you are a supervisor. New trucks and once I got a knowledgable group of guys things were even better.

    Cons

    Management(at the time) had no knowledge of the oil and gas industry. Due to the operations managers lack of experience, this made communication during jobs difficult and bad choices were made resulting in loss of revenue and clients.

    Closed office and laid off everyone without warning

    Pros

    No oversight. No expectations as no direction was ever given.

    Cons

    Where to start? Laid off with no reason given, horrible communication from upper management, financial side in complete disarray, no direction or goals given on work completed or attempted, management was openly, brazenly, dishonest with employees at almost ever turn, unrealistic expectations for profits in an industry that was on the downturn, just an all-around terrible place to work that I wish I had never heard of. Coming here was the worst mistake of my career, bar none.

    No appreciation for the hard worker. People aren't paid what they are worth.

    Pros

    Top notch, high dollar equipment. Free cell phone. Brand new company car for everyone at management level. Vacation time is slightly better than most companies.

    Cons

    Company spends money like it grows on trees. Everyone at management level drives a brand new GMC Arcadia, Tahoe, or a New Dodge Ram Quad Cab. There's at least a million dollars in brand new trucks sitting in the parking lot. There's a huge pay scale difference between upper management with many of them being way overpaid, while many of the working class employees are severely underpaid and overworked. There's a serious problem with the culture at Swire and a big "Throw You Under the Bus" mentality and lots of placing the blame on others. You have to beware of what you say to anyone here, as everyone is trying to stab everyone else in the back. Employee appraisal system is severely flawed. My manager trashed me on my appraisal year after year, yet he is never around and has no real idea of my work ethic or how much I have actually done for the company. The only reason I got raises, is because the final sign off on it; was done by the company president who truly liked me. The majority of the employees are very unhappy, see no future at Swire; and many I worked with for years have now left. Many of the employees here are miserable and hate coming in to work. Many of the senior management at corporate level are never at work. There are usually out or MIA, and the communication between them and lower level employees; is the worst of any company I have ever worked for.
