Former Employee - Maintenance Engineer in Houston, TX
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Easy work, requires little thinking Good pay, slightly above average Good benefits, better than average Great name to have on resume Safety culture

Cons

Too many managers No accountability for employees misbehaving or performing poorly Every employee hides behind their given responsibilities to avoid getting new work/projects Difficult to get work completed b/c of lazy culture

Advice to Management

Need to give lower level engineers more responsibility, such as control over a budget or other decision making power. It is very difficult to get any work done when you have to go through 10 managers to check if its alright to do anything

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent ethics and integrity go through the company, underlined by core values especially safety. Good work-life balance though getting tougher as we are leaner, common across corporations these days.

    Cons

    Can be slow/difficult to drive change. The strength is working with teams and getting input on change, but some things have to be driven to be competitive. Need to ensure we keep valuing the technologies and experts who helped make the company what it is.

    Advice to Management

    Need to remember to keep developing people even as competition has intensified. Fewer development opportunities than in the past and these are needed for the long term.
