This is a great company to work for, but as a Rig Technician I couldn't be guaranteed steady work and was always in a different location. I love the company and believe anyone would enjoy working for them!
Pros
The work environment is a great network of individuals that are like family.
Cons
Being away from 2-8 weeks at a time and not knowing if you'll have work.

I liked working on Patterson rig 24 being a roughneck and llike to do it again on another rig some where else. I liked being out in the field and making a living for myself and family. it gave me new experiences in the field, I've worked in the field moving rigs for years swamping on a bed trucks and picker trucks even on them big trucks called commanders. I started as a leasehand for a couple months and made my way up to be9ing a roughneck which got to be more interesting cause the work was more to my taste which is always keeping busy and always moving.
Pros
I was always working out in the field
Cons
Didnt complain about anything

Managed two six men crews, on a 12hr shift
Maintance and upkeep of rig, and rig equipment

Coordinated service crews

Learned alot about mechanical and electrical, people skils and dealing with problems and high levels of stress.

The hardest part of the job was the hours, being the rig manager i was on call 24hr, and stationed at the rig for days.

The most enjoyable part of the job, was feeling of accomplishment when machinary and people worked in perfect harmony and completed task and finished projects.
Pros
Great pay, and benefits
Cons
Long hard hours, away from home
