Advice to ManagementAdvice

D-R offers many opportunities for growth if you are willing to take risks and be an entrepreneur. A matrix organization is great as long as it eases communication and betters decision-making process - The matrix has been taken to an extreme and there are now too many chefs in the kitchen.

    Pros

    Decent Benefits and Vacation
    Centralized location in Houston; Office bldg at Katy Frwy is old and badly in need of renovation.

    Cons

    Inability of company to meet announced deadline/changes within corporation
    No accountability for Project Management when not complying with company policies/procedures.
    No communication between management level and non-management employees; rumors rule.
    Poor training program and unnecessary repetitive non job-related computerized training.
    Employment/advancement/salary increases based on nepotism/politics especially at non-management levels, instead of employee contributions/accomplishments.
    Too many "chiefs" (or employees who think they are); management top-heavy, especially at mid-management level.
    Badly needed building repairs not made-safety issue. Painting over rusted stairwells does not solve the problem!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees with the respect you demand for yourselves, regardless of employment level.
    Enforce accountability within SOX and company policies/procedures and eliminate the "good ol' boy" environment.

  2. It has been a great opportunity to get paid to learn despite the stifling bureaucracy.

    Pros

    A good place to work if you like mechanical engineering. Good opportunity for learning about the gas compression industry. Opportunities for both domestic and foreign travel. Opportunities for changing jobs within the company including acquisitions.

    Cons

    Poor employer support in balancing between work life and personal life. Compensation levels might not be competitive. Stifling, wasteful bureaucracy.
