What I like about the company

I learned more about being a mud engineer in the first few months I worked there compared to over a year at Halliburton Baroid. At Buckeye, I worked my tail off and was duly compensated. The focus is to make the mud hand as autonomous as possible; they give much freedom and do their best to honor a hand's days off. The culture at the company was awesome (I tend to keep to myself), and they would rather their employees be over-equipped than under-equipped. A number of their customers and company men have done business with Buckeye, or have worked with some of the people there, for decades (seriously I can't remember how many rigs I went to, and the company men were actual friends of my bosses). They believe in treating the employees well, for it will certainly show in an employee's attitude. Honestly a big part of me misses working there. Buckeye's motto (at least when I was there) is "you may shear a sheep many times, but you can only skin it once". By keeping the cost to their customers low, they have remained the strongest mud company in Permian, despite the down-turn.
I was recently laid-off by one of their competitors. During the "safety meetings", the district manager (my boss's boss's boss's boss) would stand before us, cursing the name of Buckeye, asking aloud why they were the top dog in the Permian (this company I was at is huge). It was the most entertaining of spectacles. The way Buckeye treats their own, and their customers, is the answer as to why they do so well. Oh and there's a company vehicle, usually about new, with a gas card.
