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.

I like about the employer

Some old friends work there

I dislike about the employer

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the 70's, poor management, no support from managers, required to be on call 24/7 by phone at your own expense, software outdated in 90's, believes they understand land processing, no knowledge of marine, lack of leadership, lack of understanding of AVO, inversion, unable to perform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.
