    Pros

    good customer base gives the company better business stability

    Cons

    Too many VP and other senior managers running around Houston pretending to be in charge, when all the decisions are made by the CEO anyway. They do not listen to the field staff on service items or operational issues. Instead, they have big strategy meetings all the time but never make any decisions to help the business grow.

    Advice to Management

    give people clear direction and let them perform - then reward them with good salary and benefits. Stop running the company like its all US employees, we are part of a global company

    Pros

    Many dedicated employees, generally lower level staff, who are willing to work all hours necessary to successfully complete mishandled, mismanaged projects. Small pockets of talent can be seen everywhere.

    Cons

    No respect for people, management or general employees.
    Managers are unduly pressurised by senior management, which results in a negative working environment for all employees.
    Employee remuneration package is much lower than other similar businesses in Houston.
    Very long working hours.
    Expectation of unpaid work, with zero consideration for family/work life balance.
    Frequent management changes, as senior employees leave because of bad working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Offer higher pay and better package, to attract better managers.
    Do not hire YESmen, as this does not foster innovation and only respects ideas from the CEO.
    Respect the right of an American citizen to a reliable family personal life outside work.
