    Good place for experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsPay is competitive within oil and gas industry and benefits are good.

    It is very easy to get promoted within 2-3 years, sometimes even less.

    Company is very safety conscious.

    ConsLots of processes to get anything done thus making one's work harder than it actually is.

    Turnover rate is relatively high within company, thus promotions are due to back-filling. This leads to people not being experienced with their job.

    Lack of communications between different departments.

    Lack of training within organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess micromanaging and processes. Need to retain and develop current employees rather than constantly hiring new ones.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Shaky waking up everyday wondering what will happen to the company.

    Field Service Technician (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsKnowledgeable technicians and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed working in the field with no supervision and being trusted to complete tasks with trust. Pay is very competitive.

    ConsBusiness is very up and down meaning you never know when you might have long periods of time with no work or pay. Training is still being developed and not up to par with the demands of the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on sustaining the company and less on developing different services that technicians have little or no knowledge of.

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

    Great culture, great values, great people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDuring my time at Tesco I enjoyed my coworker's presence. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and if you need help anyone in any department is wiling to help you out.

    ConsSometimes communication is a bit fuzzy between departments and it takes awhile to get some things done unless a lot of upper management gets on people to do something.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on strengthening communication and emphasizing main goals

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

    "Red Flag"

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGreat Pay for similiar jobs at other companies
    Benefits are good
    Lots of options to move around the company because of back filling all the people that leave, people move around all the time and never do the same job very long...this is also a con because no one really masters what they are doing.
    Good Social Responsibility, lots of options to volunteer
    Focus on healthy living, gym available, fitness classes, etc.

    ConsNo work/life balance, it is hard to take any of the vacation they give you.

    TURNOVER: should have been a huge red flag to me. No one stays here more than 2-3 years, if that. Some new people are around from growth, but the large majority are from filling all the people that quit. So many people leave every week, most folks are numb to the news that someone left.

    Horrible communication. It is almost impossible to get help or information from anyone. Everyone is too busy. On a personal note, the social communication is next to nothing. No one knows anything about each other's personal lives/situation...they don't care, no one talks to each other at the office, not many people go to lunch together. It is a weird office dynamic in that regard.

    Advice to Senior Managementstop being so immune to bad managers that do not have any leadership capabilities. Need to focus on retaining employees, rather than a constant revolving door!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company to work for but the systems in place make your job harder than it should be.

    QHSES Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Lafayette, LA

    ProsGood 401K match with great benefits. Time off usually isn't an issue.

    ConsUpper management is out of touch with what really occurs at the local level. Company does not place high value on employees who have worked their way up in the ranks. Company places too high of a value on pedigrees rather than actual job experience and ability to do the job competently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward the hard working employees you already have and stop looking for a new widgets elsewhere. Develop the talent you have and give back to the employees.

    Be a LEADER!

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFlexibility and pay are very good for most people in the Corporate office.

    ConsVacation is discouraged and there is a serious lack of leadership and accountability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold managers accountable and show them how to hold their subordinates accountable. There is no such thing as "too much" communication.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
