    Pros

    Treated their employees very well with money and food.

    Cons

    They will hire anyone who is a friend of a friend of a friend. Hard to get in without knowing someone.

    Advice to Management

    Just because your son/daughter or sons/daughters friends are in the relevant field, doesnt mean they should be hired.

  2. Small Company feel with good people

    Pros

    Given a lot of responsibility. This is great if you are a self-starter looking to gain experience like I am. Luckily this was noticed by my manager and I was able to advance.

    Cons

    Some of the new direction the management was taking was not for me. Felt like a much bigger company with a lot of bureaucracy. It was a better place to work when it had a more family feel.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on the bureaucracy. Yes, you need to implement policies and procedures, but you don't need to do it by layering a ton of extra work on your employees. And you can do it without getting rid of the small company feel that you had when corporate was in El Paso.

    Pros

    The people are the best reason to work there. Best pay in the area with good benefits.

    Cons

    Constantly on call even when on time off but this is to be expected with the pay and nature of the business.

    There is no trust or no need to trust, there is only Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy.
