Dim future?

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsPrograms (STEP) events that support community initatives
Neutral compensation package (benefits are okay)
You will learn some things from some seasoned experts
Work/life balance (flexible work schedule)
An independent buyer is considering buying the E&P company (hopefully they will be sharp and can recognize real talent)

ConsSome members of senior management outright lie about initiatives or career advancement
Most people belong to a clique and are very gossipy, mainly those who are not hard workers
Processes are terribly flawed, Process Optimization is a joke
Rewards are given with very little evidence of hard work
Most experienced people are in cubicles while less experienced/lazy people are in offices
Talented people are shoved aside while non-value add people push on through to promotions
Too many levels of management in some areas.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize real talent when you see it. Don't continue to reward ass kissers and lazy folks.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at El Paso


    Pros: If you want to learn about the gas industry then get a job at a pipeline… Cons: I think when its time for layoffs there is never a good way to do… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your employees, and remember just because someone is capable of doing more than most people… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
