Chaos

Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsGood place for junior / newly educated as they are taught well here. Also easier to get in with less education than many companies.

ConsA lot of turf war has bad impact on morale, projects and execution. No customer focus. High turn-over. Company always changing. Ethics so-so. Too many cowboys.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe basics of the company ain't working, and reorganizing isn't going to solve it. Management needs to sort out quality at top and mid-level first, and stop turf wars.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
