    Pros

    Oil and Gas pays better than most industries. There are some cushy jobs if you can get in the right one.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be awful depending on your position. Compensation between different positions makes no sense Lots of the locations are awful and work at home is very rare. The company is not progressive at all so any changes will be very slow to happen. Dying industry.

    Great Company To Work For

    Feb 19, 2021 - Project Coordinator in Galveston, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There is a lot of room for growth and many locations. The pay and benefits are superb. Every day is different and there are many job opportunities to move into if you enjoy diversity.

    Cons

    It's a 24 hour operation, so work-life balance is tough. The leadership cares more about production than their employees. This is due to the fact that people who drive work no matter the cost are often promoted to supervisor roles. At the Galveston Bay Refinery, the union to company relationship is very poor and it is mostly the union worker's poor work ethic to blame.
