They try hard

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsLike a family
Most employees aren't expected to work more than their 40 hour work week
Flexible office hours in Houston

ConsLittle room for growth
Changes in the way the company does things are extremely difficult to implement
The overall professionalism of the company is low (still a lot leftover from the "mom & pop" days)

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's not high school, there's no need for the "cool kids" to push the others down. If the company has failed in several locations and certain people were involved with each location...maybe it's time to cut the cord.
