Interesting for the assistant who takes an interest in the work; like anywhere, good and bad managers.

Pros

Excellent benefits; varied and interesting people from all over the world. Our current chairman is one of the best moves we've made, and it seems we have good management working forward for the future.

Cons

Ranking system is one of the worst methods I've seen; concern that it is manipulated and very dependent on whether or not you work for the right manager. Not certain the the best are being culled from the younger folks for advacement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wsh management would recognize that administrative professionals do take their positions seriously and find it offensive that management seems to think "anyone" can do the job. This has led to moving some employees into the position where they perform poorly and make it difficult for others, both us and other employees.

    Pros

    smart capable employees that are a pleasure to work with
    really strong safety culture
    very good technical capability
    good benefits and perks

    Cons

    the rating process is a black box
    hardly any influence as to what your next job can be
    salary treatments are not fair and sub par
    no 9-80s
    not capable of making timely quick decisions, middle management afraid to take ownership and make decisions
    very slow to move and react as a company
    frustrating for someone who like to get things done rather than sit around and talk about it
    seems to be alot of wasted effort on processes
    there are groups dedicated to maintaing process and all they know is thier process and they know nothing about the real "work" so processes are not applied in a "fit-for-purpose" way

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    change ranking and rating process
    value your employees on performance and productivity and contribution rather than other unimportant things
    learn to take better financial risks

    Pros

    Decent pay, 401k match, Opportunities are there but you need to know where to find them, Benefits are decent - insurance etc.

    Cons

    NO bonuses
    Pigeonholed quickly - fast riser or slow mover
    Bureaucracy
    No input into personnel moves, company decides what is best for you
    Be prepared to live in Houston

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to people. Stale midlevel management (my manager had the same job for 20 years). And why no bonuses?

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
