    Pros

    Still a choice Houston employer of choice, especially for work life balance. 9/80 work schedule. Van Pools.

    Cons

    The 401k plan and pension are excellent. The medical plan is OK, but the dental plan needs help. No vision coverage, well except LASIK is covered. That's fine and dandy except if you are far sighted and need reading glasses, you are left out.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop trying to reinvent ASC to be just like Saudi Aramco. This is a US company in the USA. I know it is your comfort zone, but you are here only for a short time. Every new management team comes in every two to three years and changes everything. This disruption is a waste of time and money and often good processes are replaced by bad processes simply because the new Manager wants it done his way. This struggle is just as frustrating to us as it is to you. The company could perform better is less Saudi's were in upper management positions. Continue to send Saudi's for assignments as we truly love them here, but have them come over in lower level training type positions.

    Pros

    Wonderful work life balance. Great training classes!

    Cons

    Probably the most difficult issue the employees deal with is the rotation of senior Saudi management every three years. It is very disruptive to the work culture. Just when you get used to one managers style and goals, he rotates back home and you start over again.

    Advice to Management

    Change the senior management rotation policy to five years as opposed to three years.

    Pros

    I was taught a lot about networking and I learned a lot about the oil and gas industry.

    Cons

    The internship wasn't very structured. Initially, we were all supposed to be assigned individual projects, but that fell through.
