    Potentially a great company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFlexibility with work hours as long as you get your 8 hours a day/40 a week
    Great people that are interesting to work with
    Several departments and entities to work for

    ConsUpper management does not communicate well with others
    IT department lacks efficiency and has an online "ticket" system which often results in weeks going by before a problem being addressed - even if the problem is time-sensitive

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees to improve morale and team atmosphere
    IT department needs new procedures and less control of system processes

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It is an average company to work for

    Senior Accountant (Current Employee)
    North Houston, TX

    ProsLarge company so not real worried about the floundering economy. We have a vast variety of products that some subs manufacture, but the majority of the revenue is generated by drilling.

    ConsWork life balance is non exsistant and the insurance does not cover preventative care. Time off is allowed, but only because the state makes them. Of course it could be fro the subsidiary I personally work for, can't speak for the others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you say you are going to do something , do it and document it.
