Pros

Awesome benefits, great pay. The work certainly isn't boring and can be quite fun and challenging at times.

Cons

A large population of boomers that does not seem to mesh well with millenials trying to start a career in the industry. The hours can be very hard on your personal life. You are encouraged to bring up safety observations but the leadership often adopts a punitive attitude when you do. When aging equipment and maintenance issues are brought up, their budget is usually the first thing they bring up, in spite of encouraging safety first.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting the wrong people. Please be more thorough in your vetting process when choosing to promote. It is far more important for a candidate to have a great and positive attitude than it is for them to have years of experience. Years alone do not make for a good candidate.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits.
    Job stability.
    Nice people and team leaders.

    Cons

    Nearly all jobs are awful cities such as Houston, Bakersfield, or Lagos.
    Senior level managers only pretend they listen.
    Failures are always presented as success stories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build competitive advantage by hiring the best people in geographically attractive locations.
    In the 21st century, there is not need to have everyone in the same place.
    One genius working for you in CA could change the way you do your business, while Houston is home for mediocrity and lack of innovation.
