    Great place to work - if you're not contracted and/or hired on.

    Pros

    Great people to be around, flexible schedule

    Cons

    If you work too hard, everyone will pile work onto you. I tried to take on more responsibilities so I can stand out from the crowd, only for all the upper management to forget, and just pile more work on me with crap (contracted) pay while everyone else does the same thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire your contractors that have been there more than a year.

    Pros

    I liked the community involvement.

    Cons

    Management was very poor. HR failed to resolve any issues. Many men could easily have sexual harassment suits against them. The culture was counter productive. Many negative people.

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, good people, loads of opportunities for experience from the beginning, different training available out of college

    Cons

    Never ending amount of work, lack of career guidance past the first couple of years, limited upward mobility, seems to be a lack of vision and forward planning from the executive level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More career planning and guidance for employees, more forward planning for the company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Plenty of challenging work, and encouragement to do as much as you can. No one will ever try to stand in the way of you gaining new skills. Literally everyone is important to the team regardless of specific job title. The people are excellent as well and, for the most part, always willing to take the time to answer questions and help.

    Cons

    Along the same lines, there is an endless amount of work and definitely not too much staff on board. Can be a good thing, but can also be overwhelming at times. Not a whole lot of structures and processes in place for the new and/or less experience people coming on board.
