    Pros

    1. They treat employees pretty well...in Houston.
    2. In the past the bonus has been pretty good, but they're working on winding that down and bumping up salaries a bit, which I view as a good thing.
    3. The salaries are now becoming decent.

    Cons

    1. Because it's such a small company, there's no room for advancement. What you get hired to do, you'll do until you leave.
    2. Senior management tends to make poor business decisions, like opening offices in locations that are ridiculous.
    3. Senior management is waaaaay too "hush, hush" about everything. For such a small company there is a surprising lack of transparency.
    4. Benefits seem to be getting slashed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close your remote offices. And stop being needlessly secretive about everything.

    Pros

    There are no pros. They are headquartered in Texas and ran by outlaws. Racist, sexist bigots.

    Cons

    Where to start? The abyss- where wealthy white men hire minorities to treat like slaves. The fat cats sit in plushy offices while every employee suffers. It's modern day slavery folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value an employee. Just try it.
