    BJ's shows themselves as "family orientated", but will pull the plug on those families for profits 100% of the time.

    I have been working at BJ Services

    Pros

    They are a big company with lots of room for advancement. If you like to travel the oppertunities are avaliable to work all over the world. Living in a region that has a large demand for an experienced workforce, companies are forced to pay much more for workers, especially living in remote area's; BJ services pays good salaries concidering the level of work involved for this reason.

    Cons

    As a company that boasts to be "family orientated", their primary objective is to appease the stock holders. There fore they will, and have, laid off hard working, dedicated BJ employee's on a whim and wild rumors that the oil activity would slow down. I had witnessed a hard working, family man leave his company where he worked for over 10 years to work for BJ Services, only to be laid off less then 6 months later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BJ Services is an extreamly large company and this creates major complications in trying to make everyone happy and maintain a marketable service. The employees can understand the pressures managment faces and understand the stresses the shareholders put them under at all times, expecially during slow times. I would like if the managment would approch all employees for help in dealing with slow down periods rather then acting out of instinct. ie. ask if employees would prefer roll backs in wages rather then lay offs. Once an American Executive came up here to Canada and talked to us ground level workers like we were in kindergarden. He then proceeded to show us a slide show, demonstrating how Sunday was not profitable for us, and we needed to pick up the pace on Sundays. He further instructed us on how important a maintenance program was to the a success of the company, this only days after several dozen maintenance members were deemed "non profitable employees" and layed off. Jim Stewart was then reported as giving the CEO's multi million dollor bonuses that year for their cost saving efforts. My friends scrambled to find work and pay their bills after being abruptly laid off in a company that boasted $250 million dollars PROFIT in Canada alone that year, how can these CEO's sleep at night knowing that?
