I have been working at Pinnacle Asset Integrity Services full-time (More than 3 years)
Opportunity. If you put in the effort, you'll go far. With such a rapidly growing company, new roles and niches come up all the time to be filled. These cry-baby reviews are from people who won't put in the blood, sweat, tears, and hard work. I'm not an engineer (random liberal arts degree here), so duh, it's going to be harder to advance at an ENGINEERING consulting company.
Culture. With the struggles of the past year, the culture has been a bit shaky, but the awesome events are coming back (Giving Week, sports tournaments, etc.) and the atmosphere is getting back to normal. What a novel concept: when negativity gets cut out, everyone else starts to feel better.
The people: I love the people I work with. I've created long lasting friendships and networking that I never would have at another company.
No company is perfect. This isn't a Fortune 500 company that's been around for 100 years. We're still growing and mistakes are going to be made. Bumps in the road are going to come up. But that's where the hard work and perseverance pays off. Are you just going to complain, whine and not do anything about it? If you don't want to work hard, don't work here. Don't waste your time or ours.
Advice to Management
If people with their boots on the ground want to give their opinion or advice, listen. The cry baby reviews are annoying, but don't 100% discredit them. There's always a modicum of truth buried in their whiny BS.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pinnacle Asset Integrity Services (Pasadena, TX) in December 2016.
The process was quick. Applied online, and received an email invitation from a recruiter within a day of my application to set-up a phone interview with her. After the phone interview with the recruiter was then asked to have another phone interview with a lead tech, after completing this interview I was asked to come in for a 3-hour in-person interview to meet with the team.
The process was quick and professional, and I truly enjoyed learning about PinnacleART from the various employees I spoke to.
