Ground Floor Opportunities in Well Established Drilling Company
Attorney (Current Employee), Houston, TXApril 28, 2014
Pros: room for growth and advancement; great experience
Cons: sometimes, you have to do a lot of work to get that great experience
There are some changes taking place at Parker Drilling, and while some people might view that situation negatively, this is a great place to work for those people looking for an opportunity to prove themselves and see what they are capable of. The change is all for the better - management may not always get it right 100% of the time, but you can tell that they are doing what they believe is best for the business, the employees and the customers.

HR (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 11, 2014
Pros: lunches
Cons: cheap christmas parties, low morale, high turnover
Upper Management cannot pull it together! They under pay, treat employees like dirt and will work you until the decide to hire someone cheaper. Human Resources is clueless, and not focused on employees. Stay away!

HR Consultant
Human Resources Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, new learning experience
Cons: contract basis so no benefits
On a contract basis, provided Parker Drilling with assistance on updating and/or creating competitively benchmarked job descriptions and assisted in the review and revision of current policies and procedures.

This was my first opportunity in the oil and gas industry, so I learned a great deal about a new industry and the significant differences from hospitality.

Cheap Cheap
Derrick Hand (Current Employee), Houston, TXJuly 23, 2013
Cons: having to purchase my own boots and fcr clothing
Rigs are not keep up and hands are treated like dirt. Can get laid off before the company hits the boat. Cheap company would try to layoff hands for two days then call them back to work just to save some change.

Excellent Rig Contracting company
Sales Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 8, 2013
Pros: solid rig fleet
Cons: occaisionally having to turn a good client down
Placed barge and land drilling fleet with term contracts with a diverse Oil and Gas operator base. Good CEO/Chairman and equally reputable co workers and management. High utilization numbers resulted in turning some good clients down in some cases. Working with a company with a great industry enabled success.
