Current Employee - Analyst in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Analyst in Houston, TX
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Analyst Salary is very competitive. People are nice to work with. Company feeds employees in times of high stress.

Cons

Very top heavy, including contracted project managers. They over work you into the late hours and have meetings past midnight during projects. "wearing many hats" is a literal statement at this company. There's not much management feedback given to employees. Management has tendencies to thwart responsibility and not take ownership of information. Management is very opportunistic when it comes to relinquishing responsibility, losing sight of common sense. Lots of turnover in Operations-but hardly much in the IT organization. Systems are very fragmented and not well thought out,having to resort to a lot of band aids to fix problems. There's not oversight into business unit practices. Compliance department lacks clarity surrounding guidance. Feeding employees high fat/high cholesterol food during times of stress.

Advice to Management

Understand each others' processes; build incentive programs for all employees; be sensitive to the type of employees you need, relative to pay grade and the job at hand. Listen to Operations as a 'customer' and not as a 'supplier'.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pensacola, FL

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    company sympathetic to personal issues and no hard time regarding taking time off

    Cons

    No leadership, communication, nor feedback. Very disjointed company. Too many higher ups came from different companies and have continued on with individual leadership of their companies. There are too many reporting figure heads. One person may have three bosses. No continuity, no cohesiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Imperitive that if interviewing for a senior management job that you will have decision making authority. Many times the job is given with HIGH responsibilty but no authority to act on the high stress position you are placed into.
