Field Service Tech III-Mobile Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Davis, OKApril 2, 2018
All the hours you can take and once your in, your pretty much in all the way. Paid travel and food. 30+ hrs overtime on hitches. 1 week off a month average. Unless you just wanna stay out. Great way to stack a lot of money quickly and if it’s for you, it’s definitely career stuff.
Pros
All the hrs you want
Cons
Lack of time home

Shipping Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Stafford, TXFebruary 14, 2018
The culture on a daily basis is poor management. Make you feel fear of loosing your job everyday. So your afraid to speak up on the thing that are clearly wrong. No one will speak up because they will find a way to fire you. Either they like you or not and there is no advance ment or raises. you will stay where they hire you in as.

Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 16, 2017
Forum is a very good place to work but recently had some major management changes that did not fully understand the industry. With the recent downturn in the Oil and Gas Industry Forum lost a lot of experienced people and relocated others into upper management that were not educated on the customers needs.
Pros
Salary and beneits were great
Cons
Too much upper managemnet change
