    Great Place to Work!

    Supply Chain Intern (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe company is a great place to work and enhance your skills. You will be assigned projects that encourage critical thinking and prove that you are making a real difference in the company. There is an open door policy and always a team player to offer you advice or expertise in order for you to complete your job/project. There is much opportunity to grow as the company is growing.

    ConsAs with all companies, there are some who may not accept change as fast as others, but ultimately, employees align with vision and mission of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, moving in a positive direction. Possibly have more employee engagement activities, maybe a Spring or mid-year event event (Crawfish boil, BBQ at park, etc).

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

    Good company, but bad compensation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people and very interesting problems and challenges

    ConsNo clear career path/opportunities, bad compensation and poor development programs

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter compensation for positively reviewed employees. If the company is in bad shape be upfront and let the employee know he is doing a good job, and when times improve, an appropriate compensation will come

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

    It is an ok place to work at. But not an organized company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGood benefits, flexible hours, casual environment. opportunity for travel.

    ConsVery unorganized in General. A lot of flaws! The company is still a mom and pop shop. Everyone knows everyone because they are either related or friends. Nepotism is noticed!

    Constant limbo with regards to your next job location

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsTravel to places you wouldn't normally go. An interesting line of work.

    ConsLong working hours (over 13 hrs a day), 6 weeks shifts only 3 weeks off, little room for progression, little training, never knowing where you're going to be or when, hitches often extended and felt pressurised by management to extend or you will be fired, no compensation for extra days worked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat staff with more respect and provide them with similar time off and salaries as the rest of the oil industry.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
