    I worked at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedule if you discuss your personal situation with your manager; nice office building with many good lunch options in walking distance.

    Cons

    Unprofessional behavior among managers and employees is the norm; lack of corporate culture and core values - it actually seems like the dirtier you play the more rewards you get; greedy upper management doesn't want to share a piece of the pie with regular employees who make the company successful; lack of incentive to perform well; expected to work overtime without overtime pay; below average salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage a company or step aside; recognize the talent of your employees or they will leave as soon as they get the opportunity.

    Pros

    You can get experience here if you try hard and do alot.

    Cons

    You will soon have 4 jobs and get paid for 1. They call that growth. They brag about their high turnover, does that even make sense? You wont move up here. They do not encourage internal applicants. They dont care about their employees. Their managers are cowards and do not have your back.
    Full of classist, sexist, egomaniacs.
    There is not one sane person here
    You dont get trained
    They lie to you to get their way.

    Advice to Management

    Retire already

    Pros

    Good location, ample parking, clean bathrooms.

    Cons

    Lack of internal standards, unprofessional atmosphere, no room for growth, very poor upper management, absolutely no work-life balance, low morale throughout every department, pay scale is on the lower end of the spectrum and the benefits are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    You don't even deserve the advice.

    I worked at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to many different areas of oil and gas

    Cons

    Where to even begin...this is absolutely the worst place I have ever worked. It is chaotic and unorganized, you are expected to work well beyond 40 hours a week with no incentive or even acknowledgement, management is a joke, pay is insultingly low, there is no room for growth as they openly brag about not promoting from within. If you are not one of the handful of lifers at the top, you have absolutely no chance of ever being happy here. RUN AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN!!!

    Oh, and expect to hear racism, classist remarks and (if you're a woman) be sexually harassed without anywhere to go for assistance. HR is a joke, so is finance and every other department in the company. I can't stress this point enough, RUN AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN!!!

    If you choose to go work here, expect to be worked like a dog, paid like a slave and treated like dirt.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice to give to people who openly boast about not caring about their employees.

    I have been working at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The amount of PTO, paid holidays. and flexible work schedule are the only pros here.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. The work environment is hostile. There is no teamwork or transparency. Upper management is greedy. They with hold commission pay. Products and services are seriously lacking compared to competitors out there. The research and consulting group is such a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees fair. Be honest and foster a teamwork environment. instead of isolated superior subgroups. Pay commission in a timely fashion as you're supposed to.

    Pros

    You will make good connections in the oil & gas industry. (Hopefully a connection that will offer you a better job).

    Cons

    Do not pay their employees nearly enough. Upper management is never around and doesn't lead by a good example. Expect you to work more than 40 hours a week with low salaries and no appreciation. They are not up to speed with the latest technological procedures and programs. Everything is done like we still live in the 1980s. The accounting department is terrible. There is little to no communication. Hart expects you to train yourself. You won't learn anything at this company except how not to act as a manager. There is an extremely high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Start compensating your employees better. Stop withholding bonuses when numbers are met.

    I worked at Hart Energy Publishing LLLP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Office location was convenient for me.
    -there is a trader joes next door.
    -there are nice views of the city from the office.

    Cons

    - Drama and gossip abound. Lots of ego at the top.
    - Lack of professionalism. All kinds of boundaries get crossed and HR seems to look the other way.
    - The upper management does not value employees. I always felt degraded working here.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as an asset and develop them, maybe then you wont see such high turnover. People don't leave because they are afraid of hard work; they leave because they are not valued at Hart.

    Pros

    Wonderful work, good people, old fashioned work environment with good computer and graphics systems that produce quality products. Whle leaderships is conflicted and confusing, the office culture is generally friendly.

    Cons

    Worst benefit package, poor managers unresponsive to employees, and poor compensation; no connection between compensation and performance, lack of coordination within related publications, research, etc. While products are high quality, management fails to see the big picture and capitalize on opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Radically improve HR and compensation plans to retain talented people
