Company culture

During my 10 years, I never experienced any if tjus, but did hear from other department people that is was common. Just not in data processing.

Support from Management

No support and expenses not covered if late being submitted

Teamwork

None, and management is closed minded to suggestions of any kind

Level of Autonomy

Minimal

Communication

In my 40 years I have never experienced such a lack of this.

Micro-manage

Suggestions for improvement

  • Attitude changes, management changes, realize that there are those who do know more that Dawson. When I came to work here they were doing PSTM migrations at a floating datum. No understanding of what a migration was.

What I like about the company

Some old friends work there

What I dislike about the company

micro manage, very low pay, VP positions like in a bank (too many), no communication, never do what they say, responsible for own expenses, expense payments can be 90 days before receiving, lack of technology, data processing still in the 70's, poor management, no support from managers, required to be on call 24/7 by phone at your own expense, software outdated in 90's, believes they understand land processing, no knowledge of marine, lack of leadership, lack of understanding of AVO, inversion, unable to perform depth, unable to work well-logs into processing, poor understanding of simple statics solution, unable to see the value of people who do understand geophysics, I could continue, but you get the picture. If the industry will ever turn around I can get a real job with a company who can and will appreciate my knowledge. Currently it is either their way or the highway.
