    Pros

    Everyone here cares about what we are accomplishing in the wastewater industry. The company is quickly growing which does not come without its complications, but don't let that count as a deterrent. I am happy to wake up and come into work everyday. Upper management takes care of everyone. It is nice. If you are a driven person who wants to work in a fun and challenging enviroment.. This is the place for you!

    Cons

    It is a growing company with offices in Canada, Dubai, and India. It is critical that we work with our overseas offices to ensure success and occasionally the cultural differences can be a problem. Sometimes it is confusing to be held to two different sets of expectations from our USA and overseas offices. A little overwhelming sometimes but ultimately everyone in all of our offices are working towards the same goal and that easily makes up for the occasional difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management does a good job of listening to what employees have to say and they make changes accordingly. Headworks was just voted one of the best places to work in Houston and there is a good reason why... We have great management and great employees.

    Pros

    Good culture and coworkers are easy to get along with and helpful. Laid back office with casual dress code. Opportunities to work in different departments and grow your career.

    Cons

    No in house IT, generally things go at a slower pace, most of the customers are municipalities so they are in no hurry.

    Advice to Management

    Offer training and team building exercises

  3. Good

    Pros

    A place you will see miracles happening. Great Team, eager to meet most difficult deadlines. Being a small and growing company, there are plenty of opportunities to learn different parts of the business and enhance your skills.

    Cons

    Being in Houston, we face tough competition from the Oil & Gas industry, hence sometimes it take longer to fill new positions.

    Pros

    Headworks is an excellent place to complete an internship. I mainly worked in the Sales department and my role was very educational. I learned a lot that will directly apply to my future career goals. Everyone that I interacted with at Headworks was very friendly and helpful. Even if they had a lot of work to do, they always found the time to answer my questions. I’m very grateful to have worked at a place like Headworks this summer.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons!

    Pros

    Young eager workforce; great industry; small company means possibility to do different tasks; things are available for improvement; willing to pay to attract talent

    Cons

    Decisions are dictated from the top; lack of trust from management; difficult to bring positive change; culture is of hesitancy to make decisions; lack of clear prioritization

    Advice to Management

    Let staff give you honest feedback that you can listen and respond to; trust and delegate to dedicated, hard working employees; find constructive ways to allow change; understand that difficult decisions can be made throughout the organization, not just at the top; respect ideas from others; give the process time to work

  7. Management does listen to employees on "the front lines"
