    coordinator

    Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Prosthe co had great clients and a surprisingly good reputation despite they were never on time and had to constantly fix mistakes they made in the oilfield build

    ConsLow morale and no support or camaraderie with colleagues.Tough to get things done and keep a positive attitude among so many unhappy peers. Management dictated with fear and infighting. The worst place I ever worked.

    Not As Great As They Claim To Be

    CAD Designer/Drafter for DTS (Former Employee)
    Morgan City, LA

    ProsFriendly Staff most times when they're not thinking they're better than others.

    ConsEmployees are becoming just numbers, losing small business nature fast. Headquarters shifted to Houston which now treat the former headquarters in Morgan City as "red headed step children" and get all the important jobs. Contract employees are lured with high wages and promised long term employment which ends much sooner than told. Contract employees are treated unfairly with no benefits. When they're with you, you're done, finished, leave the facility at once.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more committed and treat employees as people not like tissue. It's becoming a place to learn then leave for a better salary with better companies than stay. Try keeping who you have and keep them happy. Give contract employees full-time opportunities to continue.

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

    Quality Improvements

    Quality Assurance Lead (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsCulture improving. Support from management is good but could be better.

    ConsAnnual reviews not strong and hard to improve compensation from gained training/ school experience. History of low to no raise annually.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImpliment a strong annual review process and provide raises based on improvement and contribution to company goals and profits. Performance based bonus would be nice addition.

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

    Manager was the WORST in entire career

    IT Specialist (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGood company with great brand recognition and market share
    Very competitive pay for some positions
    International footprint is excellent

    ConsManagers are less educated than subordinates and lack ANY management skills
    Company fails to identify bad managers by high turnover and strong employee dissatisfaction
    Morale is very bad under certain manager & that person is very condescending, aggressive & unorganized
    People do not speak up against pervasive disrespect and the lack of integrity
    Managers have little managerial development and there is no real performance review for those bad managers and their detrimental actions in the IT organization - SCM Cost Accounting

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of managers that put the core ideals of company in jeopardy and remove the employee disrespect. Many good people exit company due to bad management and lack of basic respect.

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