Great Engineering Company

Reservoir Engineer (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsGreat employees, reasonable bosses that care about employees and try to grow their potential. Aggressive company allows new employees to gain experience at a very rapid rate.

ConsReserves has become an endless array of PowerPoint documentations and spreadsheets. It takes away valuable time with doing what's really important, which is finding more oil/gas. Also, hard to take vacation given such a heavy workload/responsibilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry not too ask employees to run every scenario/case that you can think of...we only have so many hours in the day. Also, we need time to take vacation- at least 2 wks a year.

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