    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 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.

    Great people and good opportunities!

    Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsTwo sites I have been too have great employees. Very friendly and relaxed environments. Company has greatly changed last 4 years. Safety is the prime topic of everything we do. Couldn't be happier working for this company.

    ConsBig company so there is a lot of red tape and you have to work through it for even small things. Sites do have very different cultures, some people may prefer one over another.

    One of the best places to work in Houston!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFamily work life balance, flexible schedules (9/80), positive team dynamics. Literally one of the best places I have ever worked at in my career. A real interest is shown towards career development.

    ConsPolicies can be overly involved and invasive without thought to how teams actually function. A "new standard" is set without getting feedback first as to what the needs are or are not.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
