Awesome benefits, opportunities for hard workers

Process Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
