Good company, good people, challenging timesOct 20, 2017 - Manager in Houston, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Very smart people at the top, good business decisions First-line managers generally have a lot of autonomy (sometimes a pro, sometimes a con) Very easy to communicate with upper management--they don't stay locked in their offices, they're very approachable Company is maturing, and business processes are catching up with the dramatic growth of the past 10 years New CEO (who was CEO-in-waiting since being hired ~4 years ago) is smart, tough, approachable.
Their segment of the oil industry is hurting badly and will be the last part to recover Little room for advancement due to lack of growth since oil downturn Benefits are just okay, not great New blood in senior management roles are bringing lots of change, and it's a rough transitionContinue reading

Great people to work with. Can be very fast pace
Upper management making decisions on things they no nothing about. It is a buddy buddy system, if you want to advance into upper management.Continue reading

good company, future questionableAug 15, 2015 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Decent salaries, diverse product lines, good people, Used to be a great place to work.
upper management has taken company in a bad direction. Most of the expertise that has grown the company over the last 10 - 15 years has been let go due to this latest downturn.

The amount of experience you receive is great. The work is fun and interesting. People there are generally friendly and very helpful.
Compensation and advancement structure changes made the company less appealing. Upper management doesn't relay company plans and allows for gossip.Continue reading

Ok companyMay 6, 2022 - Mechanical EngineerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Lots of interesting projects Coworkers were mostly nice 6% full match for the 401k Very safety focused
Upper management was disconnected from the rest of us. Lack of transparency for why decisions were made. Pay didn't keep up with the current market. Often skipped raises due to price of oil. A little too safety focused with some pointless rules (e.g. need to wear safety glasses to work on a computer in the warehouse)Continue reading

What a shameApr 27, 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Excellent benefits, great co-workers at the BU level, great training programs.
Horribly inefficient upper management. A true 'boy's club' in which highly qualified women are not only not promoted but also held back by 'good 'ole boy' management. Honestly an embarrassment for the good male employees (which there are many but too few in mgmt positions). Many unethical and borderline illegal activities observed by middle management and also corporate (VP level) management.Continue reading

Low interference from upperLow interference from upperLow interference from upper management
Upper management doesn't care about its employees in the slightest. Lower pay than industry standard. Won't promote from within.

Provides great hands on experience. Can be a fun and interesting job when working with the right people.
Company family aspect is gone and advancement in career is not achievable. Upper management keeps around terrible employees because they have been there long or they are friends.Continue reading
