Pros

*Opportunities to move locations if desired
*7% matching thrift plan
*Generous bonuses
*Great work/life balance
*9/80 Flex schedule in Houston (unavailable in field locations, but 6 bonus "flex days" are provided instead)
*Safety is truly a priority and practiced, not just preached
*Many employees delay retirement because they enjoy their jobs, not for monetary reasons
*Free snacks and beverages in the office for employees
*Good training program, with travel to classes (Houston, Orlando, Calgary, Ohio, Las Vegas, etc.)

Cons

*Poor performers are just shuffled around instead of let go
*Performance review process is heavily political, promotions often based on service time instead of performance- but not always
*Communication/cooperation between different locations somewhat lacking

Advice to Management

Use the performance review process to better reward outstanding performers and manage poor performers. Don't limit promotions based on service time.

    Pros

    Best of the "old school" and rapidly retooling for today and tomorrow. People, teams, family, health and safety are "true priorities".

    Cons

    Not so quick to change but extremely focused when the decision is made.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the employees and build on established trust. They are a vast untapped resource. Everyone has more that they are willing to share and contribute.
