    Built on the backs of interns and temps

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsYou will find some really great people to work with in this company, depending on the department that you are in.

    ConsThis company is built on the backs of interns and temps. I met several people who have been long-term temps for several years. One in particular has been a temp for over 5 years. I'm not talking about leave and come back...I mean 5 solid years in one position and NEVER asked to be a full-time employee. If the work is sub-par, the person should have been replaced. But, obviously that's not the case. If you talk to people, you'll find that there are many people who have been long-term and never even offered a full-time position. I'd venture to guess it's because they don't want to pay benefits and such.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe way you show appreciation for the people who have showed you dedication is by offering them full-time opportunities, not by keeping them as a temporary employee indefinitely.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a job that I really liked! I had a lot of regular customers.

    Sales Team Member (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsEarly hours, plus you got off early in the day. So if you wanted to do things you still could.

    ConsRude customers, sometimes you can't please everyone. But it doesn't hurt to try.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaises more often.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good pay, challenging work, few opportunities unless a favored engineer

    Laboratory Chemist (Current Employee)
    Baytown, TX

    ProsThe pay and benefits are great as it is big oil. Management is also good for the most part. Opportunities to move ahead are available if you work at it. Work can be satisfying if you are in the right group

    ConsVacation time is below par. Have to do a lot of extra-job activities for the opportunities to move ahead, work performance doesn't seem to matter. If you are anything but an engineer you are a second class citizen or worse.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
