    Great place to work

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGreat benefits and work like balance (e.g. soccer, gym, basketball). Onsite daycare is great plus the 9/80 schedule allows for every other Friday off.

    ConsLarge organization with little visibility to upper management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great pay and benefits, but no career opportunities or training for non-engineers.

    Inspection Specialist (Current Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsPay and benefits are top notch for the position that I am in. NOTHING gets done quickly at this company and it never seems anything has a "deadline" placed on it.

    ConsIt is the most bureaucratic place I've ever worked. Everything has to be decided by committee as no one has the power to make a decision. No one wants to be responsible for a bad decision, and just keeps passing the buck hoping it will "go away".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great work-life balance

    Supply Chain (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsConsiderable freedom in work schedule and autonomy. Great benefits, facilities, and people. Fairly relaxed work environment and career employees are well rewarded.

    ConsSlow moving, bureaucratic, and change can be difficult to implement. There is less collaboration and communication across functional teams and groups than I expected for such a profitable company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust pay the extra money for fully functioning and optimized systems. The cost will be returned 5 fold through increased efficiency.

    Good Balance of Challenging work and personal life.

    Subsea Engineer (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsChallenging work and good learning opportunities. In some teams you will have a lot of responsibility and yet quite a bit of autonomy to get the job done.

    ConsAt times getting clear direction from management can be challenging and some things entail too many processes that can easily test your patience.
