    Good place to work. Great job security however little to no opportunities for upward career advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany offers great job security and the benefits and pay are good. The job never gets boring because you are doing something different every day.

    ConsLittle to no opportunities for upward career advancement. Management plays favorites, occasionally pitting employees against each other and seldom embraces ideas from their subordinates.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    After working here diligently for 8 years, all I have to say is, I give up, I guess I am just a number here.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood 401k program, pays for license renewal fees, good job stability.

    ConsOn call at all times. Hard to get a vacation, often management will cancel vacations. Annual performance reviews are biased and not comprehensive. Very little to no promotion opportunity. Management does not listen to employees concerns and comments. HR assistance in times of need are unsatisfactory. Supervisors treat employees as well as other departments as incompetent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFollow your operating principles, or in time the good employees will go elsewhere.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Gulf Region is poorly managed

    Responder (Former Employee) Port Fourchon, LA

    ProsBenefits - "some" co-workers are OK to work with.

    ConsThe Gulf Region was poorly managed. Once you got on the VP's bad side, you could consider yourself out the door.

    Not what it appears

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits, generous 401K, occasionally very exciting work that makes a difference

    ConsUnless you are management you are not taken seriously and are made to feel that you are not a valued team member. When you attempt to discuss your concerns with supervisors or HR you are blown off. Very poor life/work balance. You are made to feel guilty and shamed for not attending company events on your own time. No flexibility, very rigid policies, not much room to advance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart treating your non-exempt employees with more respect. Sometimes supervisors are the issue, not their subordinates.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    High expectations, low returns

    (Current Employee)

    Pros* generous 401K, competitive benefits, decent vacation

    Cons* employees required to be on call 24/7/365 - no compensation for on call status
    * employees must be available to respond within 2 hours notice, and frequently are away from home for 3 - 4 weeks at a time.
    * Exempt employees do not receive overtime pay, and work 12 - 18 hour days, 7 days per week
    * Very little promotion potential - very basic raises
    * Salaries are far below industry averages
    * Management receives very generous bonuses, while rank and file is ineligible
    * Very high turnover rate, few new employees stay for more than a few years
    * Extreme working conditions while on spills - long, cold/hot days
    * Has become very lean, not enough employees to handle volume of steady state work
    * Poor work-life balance - management is never satisfied, always demands more from employees regardless of how it impacts family life

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

    ConsNarrow career field. It is hard to transfer experience to other fields

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more sensitive to nonexempt workers needs
