Large worldwide Mining and Mineral production
Landman (Former Employee) – Searcy, AR – September 9, 2015
As a Landman, care was taken to follow through with diligence the already tedious processes of well site selection. Processes involved due diligence to the legal aspect of determining ownership along with a cautious approach to the environmental impact of operations. Multiple meetings on simple projects became commonplace in a critical thought culture.
Even with all the attention to detail, no part of my role went undone. One up management exercised confidence in me to perform duties as expected. Micro management was discouraged from the top levels on down, and freedom to perform was experienced.
All in all, a good place to work with outstanding benefit packages.
As is common with the Oil/Gas Energy sector, commodity prices control the employment atmosphere and there is a constant churn by employees seeking greener pastures.
My position was terminated in April 2015 and I reluctantly left the company, accepting a decent severance package. The negative part is that as an older worker, opportunities to finish a career with such good benefits become fewer and farther between even with intelligent financial planning.
Top notch benefit package, excellent wages comparable to similar jobs in the industry. Work/life balance was excellent.
Susceptible to commodity price fluctuations, influx of recent college graduates with little or no experience making decisions, very few experienced middle age/older employees
