    Pros

    Growth opportunity, emerging green technologies experience, motivated young professionals, little constraints on opportunity or direction. (HORIZON)

    Cons

    POOR management, segmented divisions/departments operating at a very different pace and with little unified structure. Poor executive direction and communication of overall objectives and company-wide initiatives. UNDERQUALIFIED Mid-level management is a tremendous road block for growth potential of professional level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Houston office is benefiting greatly from increased involvement of EDP, but we need to revamp and organize at Development level so that initiatives are more clearly defined and projects are more viable with less last minute issues that prevent or defer construction. Rebranding is not being taken seriously enough, this should be an opportunity to align ourselves with EDP and bring Horizon to the level of EDP as a globally recognized energy leader. Mid level management is not qualified to be operating at their level and management training should be mandatory so that US managers understand their capacity and responsibility as EDP members and to their employees.
