    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great location, solid management. Good focus on professional development, with plenty of resources for obtaining PE license.

    Cons

    Booms and Busts with the O&G cycle. It's hard to be stable and layoffs following by hiring booms, followed by more layoffs are not uncommon. They do what they can, but it's inevitable.

    Advice to Management

    When the busts happen, the monthly/weekly new round of layoffs was death for morale and productivity. Just pull off the bandaid and try to make do with a smaller crew.
