Good company. No security

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Cactus is a good company that is very regimented in how it is run. The company has a definite pecking order, if your part of the chosen you are in for great opportunities. Due to the nature of the oil business there is no job security except for a select few employees.

Not organized. No leadership. No proper tools to work with, which is alwaya a work hazard.

Terrible company to work for. Poor Management and no leadership. No opportunities for pay raises or advancement. Bathroom and break area is always filthy.

Dreadful environment.

It feels as if there is a dark cloud just lingering over you everyday. The feeling and environment could be waaaayyyy better and the pay could be WAAAAYYYYY better!

Pros

Shop hands are cool.

Cons

Management = dreadful

Great company IF you can avoid working in Odessa

Great company to work for, even at the Odessa branch, if you're capable of keeping your head down and nose clean of the office politics. There's never any real interaction with management, actual management and not dispatch, unless you've worked with them at a previous wellhead company (which is always changing, considering they can't keep ANYONE at the Odessa branch for much longer than a year, dispatch included; except for a select handful). If you're able to do the job, there's plenty of hours to be had. Able to play the game of politics? Even more, easier, hours to be had. For the pay and the rotation? It's not the worst place on earth (unless you get attached to Odessa. Then it feels like you're living the show House Of Cards while trying to earn an honest wage at a blue collar job.)

Pros

schedule, ability to learn, more support from co-workers than management

Cons

Management, lack of support, your word carries no weight

Management

There is one person in management that needs to be gone for it to be a great place. Sales needs new ppl as well. Co workers are decent ppl. Service ppl are not the brightest and are always complaining about the work they do.Decent benefits, the pay could be better and take care of the employees.

Pros

Co workers are cool

Cons

The General Manger sucks.

Don’t care about you at all even if you show up and do your job even extra you are kicked out like trash

Don’t gat comfortable even if you do your job you are not safe they will kick you to the curb like trash .If you are over 30 you are worthless to them even if you work better then 95% of the people that work there.

It’s a job, pays well but not a lot of sleep to be had. Gone from home 20 days at a time

Politics, politics, politics, plenty to go around would match that of D.C. Job is as safe as companies you work for will allow and culture the same. Make a lot of money with overtime and sleep very little. Will push you to your brink of max capacity as far work before punishing you by not working you if you complain of needing sleep. They are in it to make money and that they do not that they’ll share any with you. Bonus is around a thousand dollars a year and they act like it’s going to break them when one branch may pull in 12 million a month. You will have “work” acquaintances but nobody is your friend everyone is out for themselves as well as management don’t think differently. Pay averaged around 160-230 gross a year. Good Luck

Pros

Money

Cons

Management, inter office politics, lack of accountability, favoritism

Decent place to work until it slows down

If the oil patch slows down they will dump 70 percent of their work force very quickly. They do not go off of any seniority. The pay is decent and it’s pretty laidback. Insurance is costly for a family.

Pros

Pay, work environment, and hours

Cons

Impossible to get on day shift

Very cliquey

If you aren't someone's buddy, then good. You make any mistakes and they fire you on the spot. No warnings or anything just good ole termination. Management was subpar

Pros

Pay

Cons

Good ole boy system

Extremely short sighted, poor management

The management seems to have no foresight or concern about the overall success of the daily jobs. No appreciation for a job well done but quick and fast retribution for small mistakes. Expect to be on edge constantly about job security. One mistake and the head honcho will want you terminated. Expect to work with very few tools and/or basic safety equipment. Service success is based purely on good service techs who care about the customers and not on company policies or procedures. Sales staff in under staffed and over worked. No time or encouragement to procure new work.

Pros

Schedule and co-workers

Cons

Management

Service Team is great

Service succeeds in spite of management and sales. We rarely have adequate direction for what job we are going to do because the managers and sales are afraid to ask questions s of the customer.

Pros

Work schedule

Cons

Poorly managed

Great learning experience, with very knowledgeable people

Cactus is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. The Management in most of their locations are very receptive and care about the employees as much as the company. There are a couple who think the companies money belongs to them and they cut corners on tooling and safety equipment. Over all its a great place to work. The upper management is always open to suggestions, comments, complements, and complaints. Most employees feel like they are part of a family not just a company or just a job.

Pros

Possibility of advancement with great pay

Cons

Lazy coworkers

You work a lot hours

Oil field job. You need to be on call and work a least 100 hours a week. Time off when ever there is time. Sometimes you need to go out town and stay away from home.

Pros

Good money and benefits

Cons

No family time

If you like a knife in your back work here,

Was compensated rather well, worked for other branch's in the company and it was a fantastic place to work. But the North Dakota branch is one of the worst places to be employed, they make you buy your own tools, then keep them when your let go. They Don't provide you with any tools and little to no training, Be warry of who you talk to everyone is an enemy and wont think twice about destroying your reputation. Work anywhere else for the company and enjoy your life stay away from the snake pit of North Dakota. Cactus is a fantastic company though.

Good pay and benefits but no job security!

Worked there for almost 2 years, offered a lot of hours and made great pay but worked 80+hrs a week, hardly any home time. Management all about themselves and couldn’t care less about their employees just their own job titles. As with any oilfield job there is no security there. Loved my job and the people I worked with which is why I didn’t give less stars to this company.

Pros

Tons of overtime and great pay

Cons

Management is terrible/ very dirty job/ little home time
Was this review helpful?

Overall a good job to have

Work hours can fluctuate and days can fluctuate. Intense work but gives you a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day if you have the ability to see things that way. Little advancement but great knowledge to have in the field of this type of work.
