Top Rated Company in Houston, TX

Houston, TX

ProsWestlake is a very lean organization that provides the opportunity to take on new and exciting responsibilities. It is in conservative growth mode which positions it well in this rollercoaster economy. Recently it was ranked the Company of the Year in 2011 by the Houston Chronicle.

ConsThere is always alot of work to be done because it is a lean organization. This is not a place for people who want to hide in a cube.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
