    A good company to work for.

    Staff Seismic Imager (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsExcellent benefits and solid starting pay. All the coworkers are intelligent and driven individuals. Everyone is very helpful and works to common goals. Effort and skill is consistently rewarded.

    Great Company to get regular Pay check. Bad management, Over worked. Out dated technology, Way too much work stress

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood for freshers with too much energy and NO Family, easy to get funding for higher education.

    ConsLack of decent career path. Techies STAY techies culture, assessment on number of bugs fixed, rather than on problems solved.
    Management told me that job is Development, but its mostly only maintenance and bug fixes.

    Massey Management is too terrible and try to make a literal mess of the houston employees and too much mis communications

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect employees and listen to their needs. Stop being some one who punishes victims!
