      Pros

      Helix brought me in with no experience and taught me so much in the field and out of the field.

      Cons

      It's hard to adjust to more of a management position from the field if you don't already have the experience and schooling. But I understand that's just the nature of the trade.

      Overall a great company

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Strong leadership who isn't afraid to let you chase opportunities when they arise. Good benefits. Strong safety culture. No shortage of work, and opportunities for advancement. They only hire the best, and the weak won't survive very long. Starts with a trial by fire, but everyone is willing to help if you ask for it. Helix has a wholly unique approach that doesn't fit for everyone, but works well if you can adapt to it. Senior leadership is available and accessible when you need them. The owner's are passionate about the business.

      Cons

      Typically large company bureaucracy. Change can be a little slow to happen, and a number of antiquated software programs are still in use. Heavy workloads at times. Still some noticeable division between departments, but signs of improvement are apparent.
