      Pros

      In 2014 when the doors at JGC America opened, there was excitement in the air. Employees were excited at what was promised.

      Cons

      Things went down hill when all project decisions were being made in Japan and not Houston, the Headquarters of JGC America.

      Pros

      The only pros for this company are salary and location.

      Cons

      The management is constantly fighting with the Japanese parent and internally. They cannot win work, much less buy it. The office was at one time over 200 people but after multiple lay offs, they now have a lot less than half.
