    Pros

    Some great people on the front line. Really awesome middle management. Great location.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management. No strategy, fire people to hide their own incompetence.

    The CEO seems to be a nice guy on the surface but what a poor character. Clearly doesn't have much interest in the company and most likely trying to get all he can before the investors realise he's running some great companies in to the ground. Flying around the world on other peoples money and ruining businesses that hard working people built up. Only two or three companies left and no doubt they'll be gone soon too.
    The CFO hides in his ivory tower and couldn't manage his own pocket change. Supposed to pay off the creditors but anyone who deals with the supply chain knows nobody will sell them anything because they don't pay their bills.
    The CTO is clearly a total idiot. Makes a number of claims about achievements but everyone here laughs about him. Too stupid to understand when you try to explain and thinks it's because he's incredibly clever and everyone else is wrong. Has a team of clever guys over in England and hides behind their work before they leave because he's a horrible person, and then claims it was his work.
    The President is out of his depth and has resorted now to firing people to divert attention away from his own incompetence. There will be no good guys left by the time he's done.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is quit pretending before you wreck these companies any more. Advice to investors is don't believe what you're being told. It's propaganda the guys running this place don't have a clue.

    Pros

    There were "Pros" at first. Company has gone down hill so fast, and cannot even pay bills.

    Cons

    Management is a buddy system. If you hang out with management after work, or worked with them previously. You ate good. Do your work and others and you get the end of stick.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off management. Cannot work employees overtime with managements high salaries and make any money. As well as lay off people who do not know what they are doing instead of people who know more than most of management.

    Pros

    None this company will be buried soon..they have one project that will get screwed up and that's the end of the rope!!!

    Cons

    Don't believe the good reviews....they will ask directly if you would write a good review because of all the negative ones. I would venture to guess that all the good reviews are from the exes who everyone distrust and dislike, and their little yes people. Don't trust this company, they are liars. Shares are no longer available and still haven't told anyone. Your contracts are worthless, time to run.

    Advice to Management

    Quit

    Pros

    on the positive side ; the environment is no better or worse than at other companies in the energy industry. The current global market decline has made a harsh environment at most (if not all ) energy manufacturing and support companies. a job in this market is a pros to say the least.

    Cons

    outlook for company survival appears weak due to severe lack of cash.

    Advice to Management

    focus on team work and cresting a positive and fostering
    environment as it will only impact the bottom-line with positive results as employees feel valued when the rebound comes.
