    I worked at Paramount Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    Paramount was a great place to work when they where "Paramount" lots of great people, great work environment. great benefits.

    Cons

    I think Paramount's biggest problems started after their parent company purchased some assets in the north western states along with the employees of said. A lot of agendas got throw on table which caused many very good people to quit or be forced out. Was a shame to watch it happen That and the buddy promotion system probably did more damage than senior management realized. Now there seems to be too many people in power that don't know their job, but, that's why they make smoke and mirrors, right?

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip, I can see why your profits are in the toilet. You need to start listening to the people that actually do the job, not just the ones that sit around the conference table breaking bread and blowing smoke up your rear-ends.
