Pros

Decent benefits. The work is hard and the job should be around for some time. The city is working with the company to build a new plant for biofuel.

Cons

Wages are a little low for the area. Big brother watching. Lots of new rules and paper work. Word of mouth is the only way of finding out anything. Poor training, learn as you go. Hours are long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the workers do their jobs and be more encourageing not looking for wrong doings. Show some kindness just hello would go a long way. More information of the new going ons would be nice.

    Pros

    Great environment. Lunch is provided with healthy options. Cubes are spacious and private enough. People are fairly friendly. Irving location is convenient.

    Cons

    CTO is all about buzzwords but does not know the technology well enough to apply it correctly. Database is a disaster! They do not have anyone on site who has DBA training. The database was developed by non-professionals. When poor coding standards were pointed out (with documentation), management responded negatively and personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're growing fast but your foundation is sand. If you do not hire professionals and LISTEN to them and ACT on their concerns, your system will fail.
