They are a good paying company. They take a lot of pride in their work fleet they give you opportunities to advance your career and they also educate you on the business and the requirements to work in the oilfield

I love working in the drilling industry but with 2 small children it is a strain on me and my family to be away from home. The pay and benefits is hard to beat. But family is more important. In the industry you get to see and use new technology all the time. The job has taught me a lot about people management. And also forward planning. It has also taught me a lot about safety and productivity.
Poor Health Benefits, work overload creating long hours on the job, no help or support from Corp office, Canadian employees are promoted, receive better reviews and better salary increases. Performance Goal Assessments are not honored - assessments are misused. Employee file records are changed without notification to the employee.
Great Co-workers and Good Pay
Long work hours, no support from upper mgmt, and mismanaged dept procedures
Good Pay.Poor healthcare.Poor system of retention of employees

Hard Physical work,good pay.Problem is when work slows down common to get bumped back so you lose your position to someone else and often there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it,even though they try to say it goes by seniority..Had good healthcare insurance till this year when it went to heck in a handbasket.
Fast pace safety cultured group of individuals from top to bottom.
