    Pros

    Get to work on fun projects and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Maybe the compensation is a little low. But the benefits help to make up for it and the relatively low cost of living in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    There is a little too much bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Ethical company, good recognition system

    Cons

    "Real" decision making limited to VP level. Site/branch level act as if they are making decision and section level manages have given up even acting to be decision makers.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize. Trust section and branch level more to make sound $ judgement. Every item should not need VP approval.

    Pros

    Open door policy, diverse client-base, variety of products, flat organization with relatively fewer hierarchies, research and application of cutting edge technology, global offices, and friendly work culture.

    Cons

    Because of relatively flat organization, chances of having direct subordinates are small for most of the employees, thus sometimes depriving them from practicing people management skills.
