Good pay, good benefits, good people
Project Manager - oil and gas (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – March 25, 2016
I worked for this company for almost 35 years, since I was 19 years old, started out as a large engine rebuilder (technician) and was allowed to advance from within up to a professional job handling hundreds of million of dollars of product from ordering, packaging and delivering.
Sadly this last position I held for the past 10 years was on the oil and gas side of the business and there's obviously no bonus points for loyalty and / or seniority. I was laid off with out as much as a hand shake from the manager that told me I was being laid off.
I cannot complain about the 35 year ride, it was great, great experiences, lots of free trips abroad and great people.
But when times are good and my team is distributing hundred of million of dollars of product, one would think that production would be appreciated and maybe a small fund set aside to ride out the downturn in business or even job reassignment for employees that have proved so valuable when times were good.
Just beware, this is a sales driven company that talks the talk until money is involved. There is no loyalty earned for hard work and dedication. And when the time comes that your not needed, or make a little more than others in the same position, you are gone.
Good pay, good benefits, end of year bonuses
Sales driven - management does not always do what they preach
