    Current Employee - Maintenance Tech in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Maintenance Tech in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Champion Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The hourly workers are cool to around, self paced, lots of equipment to work, 401k is really good and they offer a 2% pension.

    Cons

    Safety is a joke the rules change everyday, Managers (Engineers) are a joke they know nothing when it comes to mechanics the only thing they care about is penny pinching because it looks good on them and they get a big bonus. ERT team never runs drills, alarm system doesn't work, no one is held accountable for their actions, operators are very junior, systems are not up to date, i am surprise that their hasn't been a bad accident here yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your guys, its ok to say no to another Engineer, Up the pay

    Former Employee - GSC Engineering Manager in Fresno, TX

    I worked at Champion Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Small company atmosphere, international travel. Compensation was excellent compared to like companies. Were bought out by Nalco so perhaps the company will be better run.

    Cons

    Lack of strong leadership, no clear vision. Management was very clicky, if you were not golfing with the VP and Plant Managers you were excluded from decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear vision and share road map to achieve that vision with the team all the way down.

    Challenging But Rewarding

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Champion Technologies

    Pros

    Your contributions have company-wide visible impacts. The limited work force requires those who are willing to extra responsibilities. Rapid growth demands contnual change in work philosophy.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has revealed the limited resources of a small company. The lack of standardization and documentation is prevalent but was necessary for a growing market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to demand standardization

    Former Employee - Chemist in Fresno, TX

    I worked at Champion Technologies (less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to work with many different types of lab equipment

    Cons

    The company itself seems like a happy family before you start. It's not until after you start how you find out how everyone is unhappy with everyone else. There are a lot of politics in this company. I have worked at large companies and small companies and I've never run into so many people who would back stab you at almost any moment. This is probably one of the worst experiences I've had working for an employer. When I got laid off, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management wasn't very involved in anything. They laid off people who worked at the company for 25+ years...and new employees.

    Champion Technologies - Privately held oil and gas production company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Champion Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Multiple locations in the USA, Canada and South America. Technologies developed by Champion were reliable for oilfield production application.

    Cons

    Management needed to clear decision through ownership. During my tenure management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Champion is now owned by Nalco and Ecolab. Don't know how the company operates at present. Most of the people I knew are no longer at Champion so how the company operates now is an open question.
