    ""Red Flag""

    Pros

    Great Pay for similiar jobs at other companies
    Benefits are good
    Lots of options to move around the company because of back filling all the people that leave, people move around all the time and never do the same job very long...this is also a con because no one really masters what they are doing.
    Good Social Responsibility, lots of options to volunteer
    Focus on healthy living, gym available, fitness classes, etc.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, it is hard to take any of the vacation they give you.

    TURNOVER: should have been a huge red flag to me. No one stays here more than 2-3 years, if that. Some new people are around from growth, but the large majority are from filling all the people that quit. So many people leave every week, most folks are numb to the news that someone left.

    Horrible communication. It is almost impossible to get help or information from anyone. Everyone is too busy. On a personal note, the social communication is next to nothing. No one knows anything about each other's personal lives/situation...they don't care, no one talks to each other at the office, not many people go to lunch together. It is a weird office dynamic in that regard.

    Advice to Management

    stop being so immune to bad managers that do not have any leadership capabilities. Need to focus on retaining employees, rather than a constant revolving door!

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive within oil and gas industry and benefits are good.

    It is very easy to get promoted within 2-3 years, sometimes even less.

    Company is very safety conscious.

    Cons

    Lots of processes to get anything done thus making one's work harder than it actually is.

    Turnover rate is relatively high within company, thus promotions are due to back-filling. This leads to people not being experienced with their job.

    Lack of communications between different departments.

    Lack of training within organization.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanaging and processes. Need to retain and develop current employees rather than constantly hiring new ones.

    Pros

    Base location management were great to work with, corporate, not so much. Took them to much time to make minor changes. Not close to industry standard pay.

    Cons

    Never knew till the last minute what state you were going to wake up in. Not much home time. Had to spend your own money and then wait on expense sheet to be processed, and then get your money.

    Pros

    Higher than average salary. Easy to become perceived as high performer relative to the others in any given department.
    With only a high school education anyone can become a V.P. so long as your willing to lie, cheat, steal, and suffer from delusions of grandeur.
    Low Low Low accountability.
    H.R. dominated!

    Cons

    Mismanaged, poorly organized, extremely high turnover. Canadian company (clannish) disguised as U.S. based. Did'nt see many smiling faces from day to day.
    Soul sucking miserable existence.

    Advice to Management

    Great job locking yourselves in for when someone comes along to scoop up the shell of a company you've left behind.

    Pros

    Mostly good, knowledgeable people to work with. Decent benefits for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication across different departments. Even though they claim otherwise, management is unwilling to change and adapt to new ideas. Some processes can be simplified to help things get done quicker and more efficiently. Too many unrealistic promises made to customers by management and salesforce.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more engaged with their employees and better understand their needs. Communication needs to be better. Need stronger, transparent leadership that isn't afraid to admit their mistakes (hello ESI-1000, Catwalks).
