    Great pay and benefits, but no career opportunities or training for non-engineers.

    Inspection Specialist (Current Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsPay and benefits are top notch for the position that I am in. NOTHING gets done quickly at this company and it never seems anything has a "deadline" placed on it.

    ConsIt is the most bureaucratic place I've ever worked. Everything has to be decided by committee as no one has the power to make a decision. No one wants to be responsible for a bad decision, and just keeps passing the buck hoping it will "go away".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
