Pros

Young eager workforce; great industry; small company means possibility to do different tasks; things are available for improvement; willing to pay to attract talent

Cons

Decisions are dictated from the top; lack of trust from management; difficult to bring positive change; culture is of hesitancy to make decisions; lack of clear prioritization

Advice to Management

Let staff give you honest feedback that you can listen and respond to; trust and delegate to dedicated, hard working employees; find constructive ways to allow change; understand that difficult decisions can be made throughout the organization, not just at the top; respect ideas from others; give the process time to work

    Pros

    Everyone here cares about what we are accomplishing in the wastewater industry. The company is quickly growing which does not come without its complications, but don't let that count as a deterrent. I am happy to wake up and come into work everyday. Upper management takes care of everyone. It is nice. If you are a driven person who wants to work in a fun and challenging enviroment.. This is the place for you!

    Cons

    It is a growing company with offices in Canada, Dubai, and India. It is critical that we work with our overseas offices to ensure success and occasionally the cultural differences can be a problem. Sometimes it is confusing to be held to two different sets of expectations from our USA and overseas offices. A little overwhelming sometimes but ultimately everyone in all of our offices are working towards the same goal and that easily makes up for the occasional difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management does a good job of listening to what employees have to say and they make changes accordingly. Headworks was just voted one of the best places to work in Houston and there is a good reason why... We have great management and great employees.
