Analyst (Current Employee) –  South Jordan, UTOctober 16, 2015
Good people, room to move up, fair pay, good benefits. The company culture is lacking but I think it's due to the stress around the downturn.

Challenging and a fun workplace.
Driller/Driller's Helper (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 8, 2015
A manual labor type of job. No need for a diet. Upper management was great. Very safety orientated. I got to learn a lot about heavy equipment and working outside in every kind of weather. (except for lightning) co-workers are like family. We work 20 days in a row. Most of us are away from our family and friends. That would be that hardest part of the job. Not the 96 hour weeks. the money is great and every scheduled time off is like a mini vacation.

Excellent company if you want to work hard
Sr. Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  South Jordan, UTJanuary 20, 2015
Boart Longyear is not for the faint hearted. It's a company that has a global footprint, numerous financial challenges, and exposure to major world events. The complexities of operating a manufacturing, supply chain, products sales, maintenance, and a world-class drilling services organization, all on a shoe-string budget have forced the remaining employees to be effective, efficient, and a little intense. I personally love every minute of it, and hope to see a turn-around in the mining market soon, to breathe new life in Boart Longyear.
Pros
compensation is above average, global travel opportunities
Cons
long working hours to coordinate with africa, australia and latin america all in the same day

Away from your home the majority of time.

The money is good and you get plenty of hours. You usually work long hitches and 12 hour days. You are never home for very long.
