    Very pleased

    Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsA very accommodating and employee friendly atmosphere. Allows one the opportunity to grow in one's career path and interact with supervisors on a regular basis.

    ConsSometimes can be a little hectic due to the corporate structure; corporate organization could use a little bit of a tidying up, but overall not a real problem.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo real outstanding complains - see above about corporate structure. Understand that that is a function of an organization this size, though.

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

    No Appreciation and No money

    Sales (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsYou will make good connections in the oil & gas industry. (Hopefully a connection that will offer you a better job).

    ConsDo not pay their employees nearly enough. Upper management is never around and doesn't lead by a good example. Expect you to work more than 40 hours a week with low salaries and no appreciation. They are not up to speed with the latest technological procedures and programs. Everything is done like we still live in the 1980s. The accounting department is terrible. There is little to no communication. Hart expects you to train yourself. You won't learn anything at this company except how not to act as a manager. There is an extremely high turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart compensating your employees better. Stop withholding bonuses when numbers are met.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stay Away!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe amount of PTO, paid holidays. and flexible work schedule are the only pros here.

    ConsPay is not competitive. The work environment is hostile. There is no teamwork or transparency. Upper management is greedy. They with hold commission pay. Products and services are seriously lacking compared to competitors out there. The research and consulting group is such a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees fair. Be honest and foster a teamwork environment. instead of isolated superior subgroups. Pay commission in a timely fashion as you're supposed to.

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

    I would give it 0 stars if I could

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsLots of exposure to many different areas of oil and gas

    ConsWhere to even begin...this is absolutely the worst place I have ever worked. It is chaotic and unorganized, you are expected to work well beyond 40 hours a week with no incentive or even acknowledgement, management is a joke, pay is insultingly low, there is no room for growth as they openly brag about not promoting from within. If you are not one of the handful of lifers at the top, you have absolutely no chance of ever being happy here. RUN AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN!!!

    Oh, and expect to hear racism, classist remarks and (if you're a woman) be sexually harassed without anywhere to go for assistance. HR is a joke, so is finance and every other department in the company. I can't stress this point enough, RUN AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN!!!

    If you choose to go work here, expect to be worked like a dog, paid like a slave and treated like dirt.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no advice to give to people who openly boast about not caring about their employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    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

    Get in, then hurry up and get out.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPaycheck, decent location, some quality people, never boring.

    ConsExtremely over-worked and under paid. No work life balance. Chaotic environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLose 90% of current managers, maybe you'll do something with yourselves.

    Get your experience and then get out

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    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

    Unprofessional Work Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
