I was surprised that Julio Lera was not selected as President after they canned that Baker bit guy that didn't work out ( some Russian business excuse but heard rumours before that it wasn't working out ).

Julio knows how to grow a business and develop talent, getting the most of the business and his people. Just look at who they have running the show, didn't Julio train him?

Centrilift's culture was not performance based....it was politically based.  This was a management created and tolerated problem.  Plenty of good people not recognized for their contributions and too many self serving managers remain in charge. Shoudn't surprise anyone some good people leave.  Lots stay because of the pay and benefits but are not motivated.  The Wood Group avenue was just Joe convincing those who went to join him there.  Some who went that route were part of the problem at Centrilift.  Supposedly Joe is now going back to Centrilift to help "train" the new guy.  He's a good business guy but never quite got it that it IS the people, at all levels, that determine the quality of the company.

 I agree once Joe Brady left, it was all downhill running on fumes. what's that expression A rising tide lifts all boats?

and what does the drillbit business have anything to do with esps or on a larger picture, what do bits even have to do with artificial lift or for that matter production? which of the  boys coming from Houston bits and what value added?

I/m past it. I/m out of there anyway, and been much better off for it/

I'd like to recommend to admin that this portion of the forum be locked.

Trust me, I understand the above posts. I have one child in college and another in high school, and bills and responsibilites just like everyone else and want to work for a company that respects its employees. I also  respect other people's opinions and their right to say what's on their mind and how they feel.

But I'd rather see this overall forum be less about business character comments. That's something shareholders / owners need to be involved in, unless you want to create a public shareholder board.

To those of you who feel less than respected or feel threatened financially in your job, may I recommend that you invest some time in finding a new job? There are lots of great companies out there, and much need for talented people like you. This industry is booming, and good companies with good pay and benefits are looking for employees to come aboard.

If anyone needs help finding a job, you can send me a note. I know of quite a few companies looking, and can also steer you to some talent search agencies in the industry.

Best Regards

DavidPDavidson



You can negotiate your vacation and other benefits and in many cases probably won't even need to ask.

While I agree in principal that we should not be bashing companies or individuals, discussing problems and issues should include manufacturers perceived or real problems.  This should be done in a professional manner.  Hopefully they will be listening regardless of whether comments be from their customers or their employees. They need both groups.

I get your point and agree. As long as it's done professionally. It is good for operators and employees to be able to voice their opinion about those things without any type of perceived retribution. I know how it can be - companies say they want their people to speak up, but those same people can be condemned for doing exactly what the company claims they have an open door for. It requires balance, and I suppose that's why there are so few tight rope walkers in the world.  What I don't like seeing is character bashing of any type. Not saying that I see this now on the board, but ask the admin to keep an eye on it.
