      Beware of the West Texas Management Style

      Feb 26, 2021 - EHS Specialist in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The rank and file staff are amazing to work with. Even low level management really go out of their way to work with the staff to find solutions

      Cons

      Incompetence is rampant with Sr. Management. It would appear that the moment that any E-Level or C-Suite staffer shows any resolve and goes against what the CEO or Board wants they are immediately released from service with the blanket statement of "We no longer have confidence in your skills"

      Good people, terrible management

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The work can be exciting and the people in the trenches are some of the best around.

      Cons

      Management and executive-level management doesn't understand how to run a company effectively. Would rather have the answer they want than the correct answer.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent salary to make up for poor atmosphere

      Cons

      The company purposely hyped their Alpine High project, knowing it was a high risk investment, taking billions in value away from investors.

      Pros

      Benefits and pay were great. Half day Fridays.

      Cons

      Unfortunately you’ll have the “attitudes” everywhere you go. How much you’re willing to put up with, you have to decide.

      Solid compensation overall, despite the average base salary

      Feb 9, 2021 - Senior Compliance Specialist in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Above average 401K match, solid medical / dental / vision plan via BCBS, decent stock incentives, vacation policy was recently improved (added sick days and paternity leave).

      Cons

      Base salary is only OK across departments (at least in the Houston region). Bonuses are often trivial after taxes. And good luck getting a raise!
