    Pros

    Most managers were flexible and if you needed time off during the day or to work from home, it was usually not a problem.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent and has no idea what is going on. The turnover rate is extremely high and management doesn't seem to care. There is no communication within the company from management to lower level employees. You always find out about something last minute. There are no policies, guidelines, procedures, etc. written anywhere. It is a big mess of a company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. I think this could be a good company to work for if management was replaced and employees were listened to. There are other, much better companies out there and you will continue to lose employees to these companies if you don't step up and do something about it.

    Pros

    Autonomy in determining what kinds of issues to focus on, what data sources to use.
    Serious understaffing--a challenge to be dealt with, but, for motivated people, an opportunity to broaden their areas of expertise.

    Cons

    Top management does not understand energy consulting business--both from a service pricing standpoint and a technical expertise standpoint.
    Lack of upward mobility: the people in charge are in over their heads, have limited prospects to move elsewhere--and they know it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone to run consulting that has extensive, substantive experience--both in producing quality content and properly assessing and pricing consulting proposals.

    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

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

    Pros

    Most people are friendly and some are fun to work with
    Office location is central
    O&G/energy industry is a stable place to have a job, particularly in Houston

    Cons

    Poor communication, particularly within management and between management and lower-level employees
    Lack of process and poor organization (company-wide) - very frustrating work environment
    Extremely high turnover - There are a few tenured employees, but the majority last between 1-3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get feedback from your employees, then TAKE ACTION. A lot of talk and not enough execution.

    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.

    Pros

    A very accommodating and employee friendly atmosphere. Allows one the opportunity to grow in one's career path and interact with supervisors on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be a little hectic due to the corporate structure; corporate organization could use a little bit of a tidying up, but overall not a real problem.

    Advice to Management

    No real outstanding complains - see above about corporate structure. Understand that that is a function of an organization this size, though.

    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.

    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.
