    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly good, knowledgeable people to work with. Decent benefits for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication across different departments. Even though they claim otherwise, management is unwilling to change and adapt to new ideas. Some processes can be simplified to help things get done quicker and more efficiently. Too many unrealistic promises made to customers by management and salesforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more engaged with their employees and better understand their needs. Communication needs to be better. Need stronger, transparent leadership that isn't afraid to admit their mistakes (hello ESI-1000, Catwalks).

    I worked at Tesco Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Good benefits
    Good salary (competitive, at least for managers)

    Cons

    Management just started paying dividends...and then laid off employees. Communication is poor and they are out of touch with the people who do the real work of the company. They are only concerned about shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Layoffs every other year do not project a stable company to shareholders or anyone else. There is a lot of waste that could be cut to reduce expenses, but you need to ask the people that know - non-managerial employees. Go beyond the VPs to get more insight into your company.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive within oil and gas industry and benefits are good.

    It is very easy to get promoted within 2-3 years, sometimes even less.

    Company is very safety conscious.

    Cons

    Lots of processes to get anything done thus making one's work harder than it actually is.

    Turnover rate is relatively high within company, thus promotions are due to back-filling. This leads to people not being experienced with their job.

    Lack of communications between different departments.

    Lack of training within organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micromanaging and processes. Need to retain and develop current employees rather than constantly hiring new ones.

    Current Employee - Field Service Technician in Houston, TX (US)

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable technicians and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed working in the field with no supervision and being trusted to complete tasks with trust. Pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Business is very up and down meaning you never know when you might have long periods of time with no work or pay. Training is still being developed and not up to par with the demands of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on sustaining the company and less on developing different services that technicians have little or no knowledge of.
