Pros

In this smaller company, employees can have a greater impact on company results than at larger companies. Good work/life balance.

Cons

A lot of people have left, and HR is shorthanded and swamped. Positions go unfilled and those that remain retain more and more work.

Advice to Management

Communicate more often to employees, instead of focusing almost entirely on investors. A higher stock price is not the only goal. Quality work, a sound strategy, and employee pride should count also. The stock price will eventually follow if you achieve those things.

    Pros

    Good company with a challenging business model.
    Generally very profitable company in most parts of the business cycle.
    Generally very fair with bonuses, etc.

    Cons

    O&G side of business has been for sell for a long time. This causes paralysis on that side of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Very top management is almost exclusively focused on things other than operationally improving the company. Many of the things they are focused on (investment community, asset sales, etc.) are necessary but somebody needs to drive lasting process improvements throughout the business. That skill seems to be absent in executive management.
    Solid, timely and consistent communication with employees is also sub par.


  2. "Be what you want to be"
