Pros

This technology and industry is growing. Pricing is something companies are actively seeking, especially in a downturn economy. Science team is brilliant. People/Environment are nice. Very diverse environment, cultures are welcome with no prejudice. Midtown/Downtown Houston is a great place to work.

Cons

There is no growth structure identified, no bonus/raise structure identified. No share ownership plan. Competitors seem to pay more. Training is pretty bad, there seems to be the wrong people facilitating the training.Poor processes that never get followed. Alot of politics. Titles and positions do not mean anything. Alot of competitive bashing going on. Very high turnover rate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about employees. Have a solid growth strategy in place. Try to reduce the high turnover rate. If senior management gets a bonus, why can't the rest of the employees?

    Pros

    You get to work with interesting clients like domestic and international airlines. PROS sponsors H1B visas. The location is fairly centrally located and is easy to reach using mass transit. Location is also in a developing area.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. When I was there, training opportunities were extremely limited. CEO will berate employees for telling customers that they should be contacting their assigned consultant and not development employees directly. CEO owns no shares of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about everyone and not just your favorites. Show that you believe in the company by having shares in your own company.
