Pros

The culture is great. I've never worked in an environment like this and am loving every moment of it. The people that work for the company are awesome - you actually want to hang out with your co-workers even after spending all day with them!

There is so much excitement at the company and its good to be helping build something from the ground up.

Cons

We work longer hours than most companies. There are a few growing pains. UK bosses could embrace the Texan culture more quickly

Advice to Management

More networking events with clients - understand how Americans conduct business. There is a lot we can learn from our UK counterparts, but there is a lot for you to learn from us.

Working later doesn't mean you will be more productive...people have things to do outside of work.

    Pros

    Flexibility to move markets / roles if it isn't working for you.

    Good company culture - this is a worldwide thing. Everyone gets involved in the fun social side of work. The people are great too, everyone from my direct Manager to the Ops staff and CEO. David (CEO) is a big presence in the company - and he's a really strong and motivating personality.

    Development Training is top notch!

    Cons

    It's harder than you would expect to get going in your market. Unfortunately there is an element of luck involved and some do well, and others don't.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people informed whilst the oil market remains unstable.
