Positive work environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Midland, TX

ProsVery flexible work schedule
Management is very knowledgeable with respect to their positions
Positive working environment with an open door policy to aid all employees

ConsOn-boarding process is a bit lacking for new employees
Due to issues in lack of communication supply chain gets a bad rep even though they work hard as a support organization
