    Pros

    Nice office (Houston headquarters), some nice people there, very good benefits (medical etc)

    Cons

    They promote people to manager without any training at all in how to manage people. I suffered at the hands of the Procurement Department. Several old-school managers there who were mostly concerned with guarding their turf. Yes, I was yelled at more than once - so unprofessional!

    Advice to Management

    Take some management courses on how to manage people! A serious lack there.
