      Awesome company that actually cares about employees

      Nov 13, 2020 - Senior IT Project Manager in Houston, TX

      Pros

      Innovative company that fosters employee growth and development. They provide so much opportunity to self grow in areas that you are interested in. Hiring smart capable people that can move with the company and projects in an agile manner. Senior leadership is built internally, and not just hired guns from the outside, this gives them related understanding of the people and groups that they lead. The entire company has a true focus on Diversity and Inclusion, which is something you do not see a lot of in the Energy and trading markets. It is certainly not just words either, the company is dedicated to equalizing the gender and diversity gaps across all bands. It is really impressive.

      Cons

      Rapid growth over the past 7 years leave some gaps in process and procedures. There are new new initiatives to help the new hire process which was sorely needed. As with all growth companies sometimes the people feel that they don't always have the latest information about what is happening. Also the Global setup will not always fit every person, some people will not like having to work odd hours to talk with people in remote areas.

      Limited opportunity for advancement

      Pros

      The best thing about working with this group has been the pandemic. As office life resumes there will be a massive outflux of talent and even fewer opportunities for education, promotion.

      Cons

      To put it bluntly if you’re not Australian just forget it- you are not going anywhere beyond AD level. It’s the worst kept secret at this company. Terrible raises and bonus structure. Avoid avoid avoid.
