    Pros

    Great atmosphere work place. Safety first is the company goals and values. Company has long term goals and plans that will keep them prosperous for many years.

    Cons

    The company really is a great place to work. Aside from long hours out in the field and being away from the family, I have no Cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Doing a good job. Also keep the 14 work days and 7 days off schedule. It makes it easier to adjust to family life and the work schedule.

    I worked at Patterson-UTI Energy full-time

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. The pay and the time off are definite perks of the job, but the skills learned are also very valuable.

    Cons

    The oil and natural gas industry is a very volatile industry to work in. Job security is not always guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep policies a little more constant. One of the most difficult parts of the job is simply trying to keep track of what you'll get in trouble for.


  8. "Oil Company"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Company will typically pay very well and give out good benefits. Vehicles and gas cards are provided for all supervisor positions.

    Cons

    As with all service companies, when oil prices fall, jobs become very unstable. Some supervisors are very hard to work for but that is to be expected.


  9. "Bad Executive management"

    I worked at Patterson-UTI Energy (More than a year)

    Pros

    The oilfield in general has decent pay and benefits as long as the price of oil stays high or level. On that account it doesn't necessarily matter what company you work for.

    Cons

    Poor Executive level management. The senior staff at the company have a tendency to micro-manage their division and regional managers to the point that nothing can be done locally without corporate approval.
