Good place to gain (entry-level) experience, but not a long-term career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP full-time for more than a year

ProsMost people are friendly and some are fun to work with
Office location is central
O&G/energy industry is a stable place to have a job, particularly in Houston

ConsPoor communication, particularly within management and between management and lower-level employees
Lack of process and poor organization (company-wide) - very frustrating work environment
Extremely high turnover - There are a few tenured employees, but the majority last between 1-3 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to get feedback from your employees, then TAKE ACTION. A lot of talk and not enough execution.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

No work-life balance, no professionalism, no benefits...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP

ProsGood location, ample parking, clean bathrooms.

ConsLack of internal standards, unprofessional atmosphere, no room for growth, very poor upper management, absolutely no work-life balance, low morale throughout every department, pay scale is on the lower end of the spectrum and the benefits are a joke.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou don't even deserve the advice.

Get your experience and then get out

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP full-time

ProsYou can get experience here if you try hard and do alot.

ConsYou will soon have 4 jobs and get paid for 1. They call that growth. They brag about their high turnover, does that even make sense? You wont move up here. They do not encourage internal applicants. They dont care about their employees. Their managers are cowards and do not have your back.
Full of classist, sexist, egomaniacs.
There is not one sane person here
You dont get trained
They lie to you to get their way.

Advice to Senior ManagementRetire already

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

Unprofessional Work Environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP full-time for less than a year

ProsFlexibility in work schedule if you discuss your personal situation with your manager; nice office building with many good lunch options in walking distance.

ConsUnprofessional behavior among managers and employees is the norm; lack of corporate culture and core values - it actually seems like the dirtier you play the more rewards you get; greedy upper management doesn't want to share a piece of the pie with regular employees who make the company successful; lack of incentive to perform well; expected to work overtime without overtime pay; below average salaries.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to manage a company or step aside; recognize the talent of your employees or they will leave as soon as they get the opportunity.

Very good at publishing, but needs a lot of improvement on the consulting side

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP

ProsAutonomy in determining what kinds of issues to focus on, what data sources to use.
Serious understaffing--a challenge to be dealt with, but, for motivated people, an opportunity to broaden their areas of expertise.

ConsTop management does not understand energy consulting business--both from a service pricing standpoint and a technical expertise standpoint.
Lack of upward mobility: the people in charge are in over their heads, have limited prospects to move elsewhere--and they know it.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire someone to run consulting that has extensive, substantive experience--both in producing quality content and properly assessing and pricing consulting proposals.

Run away

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP

ProsMost managers were flexible and if you needed time off during the day or to work from home, it was usually not a problem.

ConsManagement is incompetent and has no idea what is going on. The turnover rate is extremely high and management doesn't seem to care. There is no communication within the company from management to lower level employees. You always find out about something last minute. There are no policies, guidelines, procedures, etc. written anywhere. It is a big mess of a company.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. I think this could be a good company to work for if management was replaced and employees were listened to. There are other, much better companies out there and you will continue to lose employees to these companies if you don't step up and do something about it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
