    Pros

    The pay is well and veteran workers with job knowledge ,experience makes them vital for they have the ability to get the job completed even under adverse conditions that is what makes them a more professional employee.

    Cons

    BIASED, more experienced workers being overlooked because of personal relations personal opinion unjust reprimands without being investigated fairly based of personal feelings lack of leadership experience also no employee appreciation at all .

    Advice to Management

    Get to KNOW your employees do Not always trust the biased opinions of lower management .WE appreciate the fact you acquired Welltech safety .If you made surprise visits to the refineries unescorted without certain management you would receive HONEST opinion of the workers in the field with employees that feel like they matter They will take more pride and professionalism in their job morale will improve .Therefore revenue will increase and your more experienced employees will stay..But you still have a lot of the same practices that are continuing and they will continue unless you make some changes we will more then likely continue to loose vital contracts..

    Pros

    Decent pay, good people, steady work. Jobs all over the country and the world. Good place to work.

    The benefit package here is very weird. 1500 hours to get benefits is way too long. I've never heard of anything over 3 months before working here.

    I have no advice for the management. There are some old timers here who just don't like new people which is kinda dumb but that's my only complaint.
