    Pros

    Good honest hard working people.

    Cons

    If you are not part of upper management's circle you will not go anywhere. Favorites are very clear at the VP level and they will throw you under the bus.

    I worked at Champion Energy Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good, hard working people committed to their job.

    Cons

    Too many manual processes, no appreciation for your commitment, no growth opportunities. A lot of people are moving on.

    Advice to Management

    This would be useless, they don't care.

    Pros

    This company is very flexible with your schedule, and it makes you feel most of the times like you are part of it.

    Cons

    Lack of sense of urgency probably due to a low pre-planned budget which blocks hiring qualified people to do the job.

    Advice to Management

    None, they know what they should be doing.

    I worked at Champion Energy Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very motivating company to work for. Lots of flexibility as a result of the size of the company. Very quick to get decisions made and answered.

    Cons

    Home office too far from everything with lots of traffic in Houston.
    Small company so large corporations hesitate to consider you.

    Advice to Management

    Move home office to another location in Houston so employees aren't driving 2 hours to work and back each day just to stay at their choice of employment.

    I worked at Champion Energy Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees are friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    I was the top performer on my team. I trained my manager and everyone that came through the door in our department. I was given more work and extra responsibility and only a $.25 - $.40 per year increase while performing job duties enough for three to four people daily. I worked for Champion Energy Services 5 years and never received a promotion.

    The raises probably wouldn't be so bad if their starting salaries were at all competitive. Champion Energy Services is one of the lowest paying energy companies in Texas according to my diligent research and offers from other energy companies.

    Advice to Management

    Select employees according to job performance and not according to someone else's emotions. Basically be a professional.

    Pros

    Free coffee, close to airport, it is close to major freeways i45, hardy toll road and beltway8.
    Commute from woodlands area will take you 25 min.

    Cons

    I worked in this company for little less than a year and discovered that there is too much of politics and micro management..in my entire career, I haven't seen any company where the IT team is so inconsistent and constantly failing in meeting their goals.
    Very unprofessional, glad not to be associated with them anymore

    Advice to Management

    If u choose to join, keep upper management in your friends list cauz that's how u will grow. Good luck

    Pros

    The internal culture really does match the external advertising. The company is full of ambitious, smart, straight-forward and hard-working employees. Generally positive work environment with a realistic attitude toward work/life balance.

    Cons

    The location, near IAH, makes an inconvenient commute if you don't live on the north side of town.

    I worked at Champion Energy Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good company, good people for the most part, good reputation for both commercial and residential business.

    Cons

    Lousy base salary and even worse commission structure. I accepted the base because the commission plan that was presented to me made me believe I could easily recoup the lost salary. Our whole team was lied too and the commission plan was not anywhere close to what we we signed on for. Ended up being 1.5% of margin (15% is standard). Our entire team ended up quitting over the course of 1 - 3 years. From what I hear, the commission plan is still the same. You can make more selling newspapers on the side of the road.

    Advice to Management

    Don't misrepresent the comp plan to your sales reps and give them a plan with some incentives.
