    Senior Software Developer (Former Employee)

    Good Company but Room for Improvement

    Intermediate Project Engineer (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFocused on safety; spends money on developing employees, and has different career paths available.

    ConsIf you've been with the company for some time your salary isn't increased accordingly to market conditions. Hires too many people outside of the industry which creates problems with "PROVEN" ideas not working out as planned.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis review is a bit old but it seemed that they could increase merits based on market conditions. There are also too many managers and not enough workers. Could look at reducing overhead.

    Great coworkers and supervisor, management has little idea how to retain experienced employees

    Business Technology (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsMy coworkers were fun to work with and my supervisor was flexible and reasonable. I learned a lot working with the other teams.

    Good place to start, not a good place to build a career.

    ConsNo mobility within the company. Management smiles and nods with palpable apathy toward employee input.

    Raises and promotions are far and wide. Benefits are mediocre at best.

    Large projects are rushed and result in a lot of contractors being hired on at a moment's notice with no input or participation from tenured employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt costs more in both money and lost productivity to hire and train new employees rather than throw a little more toward your current ones. Lack of employee input in projects makes working at Exterran feel like an exercise in futility and frustation, as employees lose out on career building opportunities.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Exterran could be great.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsIt may be a large organization but you can get to know a lot of people and make many professional connections.

    ConsThere are times when I find upper management's incompetence annoying. They hire people from overseas rather than people from America. Want to move up the ranks?...it probably won't happen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together. Your best are leaving.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
