    Pros

    Working at the Houston HTC plant is ok in the mfg area. You mostly just come in and do what needs to be done w/o being micro managed. BHI has good benefits and probably better than many other companies. Pay is good, but probably a tad lower than similar companies.

    Cons

    Mangers are hesitant to promote assemblers, mechanical techs, elect techs, and supervisors. There isn't much done to promote upward mobility from mfg, unless you are at the managers level.

    Pros

    They truly believe in their values and mission. Decent pay for hard work. I've always enjoyed working here because they treat you right and respect your ideas.

    Cons

    Up and downs of the oil market can be worrisome to those seeking more stability than good pay. Also, when the oil patch is going strong, there is a tendency for overworking you because of not enough people to do the jobs needing to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, we are heading in the right direction. Keep focus on getting the work-life balance correct.

    Pros

    Good pay and training. Hard to have a healthy personal life without being allowed to work off of a schedule. Benefits are great and compensation is more then fair. Hardest part about the job was training unqualified people to fill important rolls at the job site.

    Cons

    Family environment, if your not related to someone or have close friendship ties with management promotions seem harder to get.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ole buddy system and maintain quality employees.

    Pros

    Training and career development. They constantly send employees for training sessions to keep them updated on new technology.

    Cons

    You get worked as a dog if you're out on the field.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees instead of always focusing on your share holders.
