Unequal Pay, but flexible for working parents
ELECTRICAL ENGINEER III (Former Employee) – Texas – October 1, 2018
While I had bosses that fought for me to have better pay, upper management would drag their feet while coworkers and male counterparts were making 5-20% more than me. If you are a female easily offended by men making lewd comments or jokes, or if you don't have a strong enough personality to defend yourself, don't work here. You build your relationships based on how well you can take a joke or have a really good comeback, which I was very good at. The best thing about this job was the flexibility of being able to leave early for appointments, games, school events, etc., so if you're a working parent, this is a great place. The training was minimal, but we had a training center. If you want training, seek it out on your own or don't get any at all.
good work-life balance, opportunities worldwide
unequal pay, massive amounts of chauvinistic views, minimal training, high risk for lay-offs during oilfield downturns
