Pros

Competitive benefits package. Depending on the location and position, there are opportunities to obtain invaluable experience in oil and energy industries.

Cons

Human Resources is into everything, they practically run the place. Pay and pay raises are sub par with industry standards.

Advice to Management

Do not allow human resources to dictate how departments are ran. Get rid of the Oracle database, or find something new that actually works.

    Pros

    The co-workers were nice I guess

    Cons

    Companies a mess,backbiting, too much politices.Lot of H1B's in company.
     the interviewers (Mech dept manager and supervisor) were confused since what they wanted and what was posted on the job board was different.

    Manager expected that I know everything from day one even though I clearly stated during the interview I was a recent graduate.

    Wanted extensive unpaid overtime.

    Salary is abysmally low.

    Manager did not bother to train.

    Overall a crummy experience.

    Weak technically. Little interest or priority given to distributing knowledge

    Advice to Management

    Don't come to conclusions without collecting the facts and managers & supervisors are not always right ,Keep an eye on them they are not being productive.
    for mech dept supervisors----Value your employees. Open the lines of communication and be receptive to feedback. Don't be afraid to hire someone who knows more than you their performance can make you look good
