Operator (Current Employee) –  Houma laMarch 30, 2018
We got bad salesman and to much favoritism they work the people they know and all the cheap works and leave the long term works at home that been there when there was no work and when the work picked up we were ready to go to work that's what I don't like if I wait for you for months you should put me to work when it pick up not put cheep labour and still let your long term employees starve

Well Technician (Former Employee) –  Morgantown, WVMarch 25, 2018
Not a terrible place to work. Expect long hours and all weather conditions type of work. And be willing to drive 50+ miles to and from job sites. The hardest part of the job was lifting 10ft sections of 1502 steel pipe for sales or flare lines. Total back breaking work but will keep you fit, no doubt.

The hardest part of the job
Jr. Water Management Operator (Current Employee) –  Midland, TXFebruary 8, 2018
The hardest part of the job, is the 12-16 hour days 7 days a week. There is no scheduled time off. And you must be there for a year before you get paid time off. There is no guarantee that you get any time off.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Long hours

Great Company... Horrible Management
Accountant (Former Employee) –  The Woodlands, TXJanuary 31, 2018
TETRA is an excellent company to work for, but some of the people they have in management are terrible. They get by with treating people however they want and there are no consequences. They stick with the "right" people and end of getting away with it

Roustabout/Derrickhand/Safety Man (Former Employee) –  Houma, LAJanuary 16, 2018
Great company to work for when you are just beginning an offshore career. You will learn a lot and move up within the ranks quickly. However, you may be the first to let go during a recession if you aren't a favorite.
Pros
Great experience
Cons
often let the top employees go during a tough year

Tetra Technologies has too much Bureaucratic problems
P & A Specialist (Supervisor) (Former Employee) –  Houma, LADecember 6, 2017
Tetra Technologies would be an excellent place to work if not for all the managers. Not all the managers were bad, but you never had the same manager. Some managers would keep thier relatives working before anyone else
Pros
Cook outs and out of town trips
Cons
Stressful work place. Could not count on managers to back you up in the field.
