    Pros

    As of a year ago this is a Whole New Company. It is a fun place to work. Everyone works as a team to be successful. There are not a lot of management layers or bureaucracy. My opinion matters, senior management is approachable and they work with everyone on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Corporate location is downtown. This can be a daunting drive depending on where you live.

    Advice to Management

    Better Coffee; it is truly terrible.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Valerus (College Station, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Got a phone Interview and was asked behavioral questions, they were all related to the tasks I would be doing during the internship. Overall it was pretty good, they offered me a position in the Latin America group. I would highly recommend the company if you're into jobs in the Energy sector they are medium to high in terms of personnel and have a really personal touch to every worker.
