Project Engineer (Former Employee), Houston, TXMay 20, 2015
Pros: good benefits
Cons: Poor job work / life balance & poor management
Pretty good benefits although they cut 401Ks during the down turn of oil prices in 2014.

Fast growing company with poor management and a very poor structure.

Poor job work / life balance, recommended for new college graduates.

This was a high stress fast pace environment. It is a good company to work for but needs improvement on managerial skills and promoting from within. My co-workers were good people to work with.

Project Manager - Drilling Division (Former Employee), Houston, TXMay 4, 2015
Pros: family environment
Cons: no 401 K match, hugh employee turnover
A typical day would consist on managing all of my resources accordingly to meet my customer's needs. This consisted of tracking everything on the customer provided baseline schedule, expediting vendor deliveries, and providing weekly progress reports. My main target was to deliver a project of quality standards on-time, per scope, and within budget.

Very unethical. If you are nor related to upper management.. You wont stay!!!
Cnc machinist (Former Employee), Plantersville, txApril 22, 2015
I worked at Plantersville plant.. I was administered gross amounts of harassment from day and night supervisors... Program sabotage so it would take me out of my production rate target area... Having to – more... go through program so my machine would not crash.. I asked my day supervisor if i could work over one day. My ride was late.. I was told no and yet my supervisors brother in law who worked in the back shop got to stay everday n get a hour n half overtime just because he rode home with my supervisor... And that was just a taste of what goes on in that place... I know one thing if karma is real then i would hate to be them when it comes back around. – less

Innovative and Exciting but not stable
Service Quality Supervisor (Former Employee), Sulphur, OKApril 6, 2015
Pros: Great compensation and fun in the boom times.
Cons: Lay offs every other year.
As a stock holder, I don't want to trash them obviously. I feel as though I should disclose that up front. I worked at Forum for three and one half years. It was really fun, but... during that time they – more... had 2!!! mass layoffs. After the first one, they began hiring again within 6 months of laying off about 35% of the workforce. They literally had a hiring event 6 months before they started laying off again. The management should really be better prepared to deal with the market fluctuations which are inherent to the energy markets. But other than having to worry about the next layoff ever other year, it was a fun and exciting place to work! – less

Spent alot of time traveling from rig to rig
Service Representative - Inside Sales (Former Employee), Lafayette, LAMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Company truck, company gas, and meals were paid for while traveling rig to rig
Cons: no time off, alot of driving done while sleep deprived, and sleeping in a truck most nights of the week
I was on call 24/7 and when the phone rang you usually had a two hour drive ahead of you. Then arriving on location I would check equipment, check pipe count, and tool placement in the pipe string. After – more... that I calculated displacement, hydrostatic pressure, differential pressure, and other various calculations depending on the tool you were servicing down hole. You were expected to keep a detailed job report for the entire job which you submitted to management after. Your co-workers most of the time were different every rig you went to but you started to get familiar with certain rigs. – less

Poorly managed and very unethical work environment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 31, 2015
Cons: over worked, underpaid, zero discretion level
I was hired on as a temp to hire, which originally told during the interview process that it would be mostly likely 5 months. That is their "standard" process for HR to approve for your hire. Well just – more... expect for most likely 2 years. There were numerous of employees I meet that said it took 2 years before they were hired on. The department I worked for was so unethical and unprofessional. The executive assistant expressed high confidential information about executives, other employee's information pertaining to terminations, conversations that she "had" to have with HR about employee's job performance. The moral overall is very childish, there is no sense of team work or efforts. Everyone is always up to play the blame game instead of acting as a team and failing as a team. You could have the greatest communication skills one could hold, but it will have no benefit here. Everyone is on their own time and will only do minimal, no more no less. Individuals that hold management positions are very young and inexperienced to manage. Having worked in the past with Senior VPs and CCOs with 15+ years in the oil & gas industry in a management role to coming here was very difficult and trying.

With the industry as it is now jobs were cut having the ones that were left over worked by performing numerous positions as one. Everyday will be struggle and very challenging, in any position. New hires are not properly prepared for work from day one. It would take up to a month the longest I have seen for employees to get their desk phone much less a new laptop. IT would issue new employees a refurbished laptop from no telling how long ago. Until it is approved to purchase a brand new. – less
