    Pros

    Amazing people, growing company, established but nimble. Product development in the past couple of years has been incredible, truly transformative to the industry. I have seen this company invest in its people and its culture and take that really seriously. The company doubled down on growth and has made the changes needed to make it through tough times for the industry.

    Cons

    Tough times for the industry; it's recovering but challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Continue communicating progress, listening to employees

    Pros

    DI is a fantastic place to work on fascinating technology with brilliant people. And people that truly care about each other. It makes for a great environment - fast paced, challenging, rewarding, and really fun!

    Cons

    We do move at a really fast pace, and it can be overwhelming at times. But when you love what you do, and enjoy the people around you, it makes it all worth while. We can always improve when it comes to prioritizing to help with the fast pace.

    I worked at drillinginfo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at DI for nearly 5 years. It's an amazing place to be. There is no doubt the company rewards and looks after their top performers. If you work hard and innovate in your position you will love DI. I highly recommend you ignore any negative reviews - if you are a hard worker and love a company that invests in its top performers, then DI is your place to be. The Founder and Chairman is very active and is one of those guys you want to be around. He's a tremendous person and a great business man. The new CEO is exceptional. His vision and strategy is second to none. The people you work with everyday are fantastic. This is a company that if you are lucky enough to work for makes coming to work an absolute pleasure.

    Cons

    If you are just looking for a job - then I'd look elsewhere. If you are looking to make a difference, then you've found your place.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to never apologize for believing in meritocracy.

    Pros

    I get to work with smart and passionate people everyday. Culture and our company values are important to the Exec team and it shows. We have a start-up feel without all the pain of a start-up!

    Cons

    We just had an employee climate survey and there are a few locations that need some help. Management is working on an action plan!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've got happy, productive employees!

    Pros

    Very good 401k match, good health insurance options, unlimited PTO

    Cons

    ELT team is not all bad but certain members have this way of talking down to others that isn't appreciated. Disrespectful to women, what I would call a 'bro' culture. They hired strippers to dance at our 2016 holiday party and didn't see anything wrong with it for a long time even thought it was the talk of the night, and not in a good way. Talk about having no class. I hear it had to be spelled out for them that that someone could go after them legally for creating that environment before they got the picture. Horrible communication all around. The whole company is disorganized and it comes off like a lot of decisions about the business are made without solid evaluation. No sense of urgency from some departments, or maybe they're just way in over their heads and can't keep up. They like to say they still have a startup feel, but they certainly don't.

    Advice to Management

    Get your company organized.
