"Our Values" Very unorganized and dysfunctional company!

FSG (Current Employee) Houston, TX

Pros-The people who have worked for the company more than 10 years are great.
-Beautiful building
-Nice gym and outdoor area

Cons-The company has several business units that have no direction or goals.
-You are to do as you are told and not question anything.
-They have what they call "Our Values" which the company does not follow. EX: "We Value our associates" this is clearly misleading when I have seen countless people terminated with out just cause. The reply that I hear from people terminated is that they stated, "It is a right-to-work state".
-Hardcore political environment (all companies have it but this is almost like a cult)
-Everything is very secretive and not transparent.
-Alot of finger-pointing and blame game
-Family-owned...believe me, weird!

Advice to Senior ManagementI dont think they would listen to advice. That is why many have left or been terminated (some witho'ut due cause)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Benefits, but career advancement and technology not in management's radar...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    I worked at Friedkin Companies


    Pros: Friedkin offers outstanding Benefits package, a beautiful facility, and great associate programs. … Cons: A lot of the tenured employees are complacent in their roles and are not adaptive to change; making new ideas and new technology extremely difficult… Advice to Senior Management: There's a lot of top to bottom feedback, consider feedback from bottom to top; you'll be surprised to see how hard your bottom line works,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
