    Pros

    The leading business intelligence resource for the Oil & Gas industry. Top line intelligence and a folio of publishing, research and client-specific project work. They run a tight ship and have high demands of their team, but they also take care of their people and create a solid culture that produces top-quality intelligence.

    Cons

    They have grown exponentially in a small timeframe. They are catching up culturally and operationally from a small company to a larger corporation. Growing pains and challenges. This is not necessarily a negative. It is something to be aware of and an opportunity to contribute to the company's structure and growth.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing well - lead strong and don't forget to listen to your team along the way.

    Pros

    Some of these reviews are shocking and clearly left by disgruntled employees. What better way to blindly attack a company than by leaving a Glassdoor review. Although I must agree with the fellow pessimist on disorganization here and there, its simply not as degrading as these reviews reveal. The benefits are highly competitive, accessibility to upper management is more than I've seen in any company, the atmosphere and culture is relaxed, they support and encourage innovativeness, and most of all there is a positive outlook on growth and success for hard, dedicated workers.

    Cons

    I would have to agree that its rumored that salaries are not as competitive as o&g companies and I was offered 15% more at a major o&g company. However, Hart Energy is a publishing company - Not an oil & gas operator.
    More emphasis should be put on training and development and career progression, but it appears that efforts are being made to make that happen.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more execution than implementation. Less talking and more doing. It's great to see the enhancement in communication with the new internal communication specialist. This keeps employees outside of the Houston office inside of the loop.

    Pros

    - Great Health Benefits and 401k match
    - PTO and paid holidays (you get almost every holiday plus more)
    - Flexible work schedule
    - Open to new ideas (while some times we struggle to implement them)
    - Entrepreneur spirit
    - You get to deal with all of the Oil & Gas industry and deal with all of the big players
    - Company continues to grow year over year, some growing pains to be expected

    Cons

    - Needs better communications with in different departments
    - Better training when individuals are hired
    - Still very print focused
    - Troubles adapting to new technology
    - Need to hire more seasoned expertise and less entry level

    Advice to Management

    While still very print focused we are evolving to digital slowly but surely. We need to keep the momentum and continue to evolve.

    Pros

    A 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.

    Cons

    Sometimes 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 Management

    No real outstanding complains - see above about corporate structure. Understand that that is a function of an organization this size, though.

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

    Pros

    Most 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

    Cons

    Poor 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 Management

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Lose 90% of current managers, maybe you'll do something with yourselves.

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

    Pros

    Autonomy 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.

    Cons

    Top 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 Management

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

    Pros

    It was my out of college job, so that was a plus. The handful of great people I met there all moved on to better opportunities.

    Cons

    Low pay; C-level executive sleeping with entry level employee; sexist atmosphere; no room for growth; hostile work environment; bonuses are a joke

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

    Pros

    Wonderful work, good people, old fashioned work environment with good computer and graphics systems that produce quality products. Whle leaderships is conflicted and confusing, the office culture is generally friendly.

    Cons

    Worst benefit package, poor managers unresponsive to employees, and poor compensation; no connection between compensation and performance, lack of coordination within related publications, research, etc. While products are high quality, management fails to see the big picture and capitalize on opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Radically improve HR and compensation plans to retain talented people

    Pros

    -Office location was convenient for me.
    -there is a trader joes next door.
    -there are nice views of the city from the office.

    Cons

    - Drama and gossip abound. Lots of ego at the top.
    - Lack of professionalism. All kinds of boundaries get crossed and HR seems to look the other way.
    - The upper management does not value employees. I always felt degraded working here.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as an asset and develop them, maybe then you wont see such high turnover. People don't leave because they are afraid of hard work; they leave because they are not valued at Hart.
