    Underpaid and Overutilizied

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsGood place to get your foot in the door. Nice people to work with. good benefits package.

    ConsReorganization happens all the time, unofficially and officially. Salaries and titles are not updated to reflect changes. Inexperienced employees being promoted to mid-level management with not HR or effective management training. Crude environment in some departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementALL mid-level to executive management should attend mandatory training in regards to employee relationships, employment law, HR practices, and conflict resolution.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to get your foot in the door for a career in the oilfield.

    Field Specialist, Core (Former Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsAgain, A good place to get your foot in the door for a career in the oilfield.
    I would consider returning to work there if i had to only because i have history and experience there.

    ConsThis post covers rock shop and field employees.
    Compensation is not competitive..
    limited respect for field personnel
    Some company vehicles are not dependable for long distance. for example one vehicle had more than 300,000 miles and broke down multiple times. The safe transportation of people and the core(cargo) was at jeopardy many times.

    Advice to Senior Managementrespect is very important for employee moral!!!!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
