    Pros

    Very family oriented with great benefits and great people as evinced by so many of the employees have been there at least twenty years and more. The company invests a lot of resources in the employees through training and education, an employer-paid masters degree program, college assistance for the children of employees and providing physical surroundings conducive to a pleasant work environment. The time-off policies are exceptional.

    Cons

    The workload can be very heavy and varied with many different deadlines and can be quite stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is doing a great job.

    It's not about hard work, it's about how much butt you kiss with this company.

    Pros

    The extended time off and benefits package are all that make this a somewhat tolerable place to work.

    Cons

    Break your back all you want, it will go unnoticed. Spend time in the office sucking up and stroking egos and you're sure to quickly climb the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize hard work and reward it.

    Great company, great benefits, great leadership, great community involvement

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Oracle Database Administrator  in  Nashville, TN

    Pros

    Benefits
    Strong Leadership at the executive level
    Community involvement (United Way, Habitat and other opportunities for involvement)
    Decent Pay
    Good People

    Cons

    In technology, they're a bit slow or behind. Because that's not what necessarily drives the company. Tech adds an advantage, but doesn't drive things. Innovation comes in spurts. Lots of slow days/weeks/months followed by short periods of craziness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - you have a successful model (of course) and you can't make everyone happy.

    Pros

    Friendly Co-Workers
    Helps with family issues without being intrusive
    Excellent brown water pay and benefits
    Usually excellent living conditions

    Cons

    Six hours on, six hours off workday
    Crew dispatch can be difficult to get a hold of
    Human Resources (generally considered a con anyway)
    As a Junior Engineer you work four weeks on and you get two weeks off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems that half the time I call to make travel arrangements any one of the three dispatchers that I have had are either not available or are out for the day.
