      Incredibly disappointing and poor place to work

      May 18, 2021 - Reliability Engineer in Baton Rouge, LA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Well paid, laid back at times

      Cons

      Management does not know how to communicate. Likely that you will be tossed into an atmosphere that you are not prepared for and expected to swim, with no training available. You will be relocated to a place that is not close to where you live, and expected to either move or commute without compensation. Any pushback to get out of the commute will result in management looking down on you. Management will expect you to know everything they know, although they have 20+ years on experience on top of your knowledge.

    3. 1.0
      Current Employee, more than 8 years

      Slowly circling the drain

      Jun 12, 2021 - Sales 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some of the smartest, caring, and hardest working people have worked with.

      Cons

      Because of some of these rock stars, they continue to degrade the workforce and expect you to do more with less. The workloads continue to increase and the demand for $ growth continues to be pressed with what seems l like little investment in personnel or facility infrastructure. It's sad. Also heavily dependent on oil and gas, which may be on a decline over the next 10 or 20 years. Pro of this: some career advancement opportunities since there seems to be high turnover in certain parts of the business.

      Pros

      Most people treat this job as a 9 to 5. Some people are truly nice to work with/for

      Cons

      Some people are promoted due to time spent with the company and are not supportive nor growth orientated. Procedures feel like people are taking crazy pills. Lack of managerial support, and unrealistic timelines.

      Uneducated and Aimless

      Mar 3, 2021 - Applications Engineer in Tulsa, OK
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay was good and they keep you busy

      Cons

      They sometimes require 50 hr weeks, no overtime pay, Work weekends on occasion. Unfortunately, they do not value a college education and the majority of leaders do not have a degree. This leads to the constant headache of wanting to help, but not much you can improve. How do you help people who don't know what's good for them?
