Pretty Good Company to Work For
Derrickman (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: many locations, opportunities to learn
Cons: it was easy to get lost among thousands of employees
Job was physically demanding, but there is plenty of opportunity for on-the-job training, it is a large company so you have the opportunity to geographically locate. Turnover was a bit high so it was hard to bond with your crew. Overall it was a positive environment.

This is just a quick overview of the work i,ve done the last few years
Driver/Heavy Equip. Operator (Current Employee), work out of the woodward ok yardJanuary 13, 2015
We,re usually up at 5am take a look at our equip. get it lit off an running, on location we pretty well know our duties, safety is of the up most importance, what we do is very dangerous, we move oil an gas drilling rigs, there,s not much room for error, i operate a 950H CAT loader with a set of 9' forks, this tractor weighs in at approx. 53k pounds and will lift half its weight, its quite a balancing act. This is the only tractor in a 3 piece rig moving team, the other two are trucks. On a normal day there are usually 6 pieces of equip. on location moving around at random, you constantly have to be aware of your surroundings, not to mention 25-30 workers, there,s no stop an go lights you have to know what you,re doing, running over something or someone is not an option. My coworkers an management team are good people they,ve been trained and have experience, we all work pretty well together, probably the hardest part of this job is staying focused, an dealing with the stress, it can be stressful at times, you,ve got be conscience of the consequences you have people on the ground around you at all times, the wrong move an something could be damaged or worse someone could be hurt or killed, its a demanding job you stay on top of it or do something else, its not for everyone. I supposed the most enjoyable part of this is the people,its a team effort, it takes all of us to do what we do I usually feel a great amount of achievement and satisfaction at the end of the day but as well as i enjoy what i,m doing my background is electrical, mechanical, instruments, management and i,m looking something more on the production side of the industry.

Inflated Salaries/Horrible Culture
I.T. (Former Employee), OKCDecember 26, 2014
Pros: salary, pto
Cons: culture, management, practices, "regulations", the sec
Prepare to be spoiled - in a bad way. Overpaid, overvalued, over-compartmentalized. Things have changed drastically recently, but this is one of the most ridiculous corporate cultures I've ever encountered. It's like a cult, complete with billion-dollar compound, and the "Fearless Leader" is MONEY.
