    I have been working at P2 Energy Solutions (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People and teams are focused on delivering good products
    Good benefits and a positive work environment.
    Implementing High performance culture and holding colleagues responsible for their actions (not always appreciated by underperforming people).
    Implemented and trained development teams on SAfe Agile practices.
    Experienced employees that know both software development and oil and gas datasets.

    Cons

    Company is often affected by the ups and downs of the Oil and Gas industry
    High turn-over of the Senior Executives – new CEO seems to be working in the right direction.
    Under pay of entry and junior level positions

    Advice to Management

    Continue the Agile practices within the development groups and work to get support for this throughout the company.
    Focusing on integrating old products to create end-to-end workflows – start with a new product that takes the best of each systems functionality and build from the ground up.
    Remember that P2 is a software development company – without innovation products will be dropped for newer technology.
    Company needs to focus on the improving Product Management team.

    Pros

    Company is really focused on helping employees be successful. Several surveys a year are used to help ensure the voice of the employee is heard.

    Cons

    401(k) plan needs better funds to invest in.

    Pros

    Scott Lockhart is trying to do amazing things with the company.

    His Hugh Performance Culture (HPC) promotion is directed for the hearts that want to achieve great things. He is trying to build an innovative company that is focused on new ideas to build a stronger culture that is founded on the loyalty of its employees and the clients we serve. The people who work here can be great, but it depends on who manages the departments and their loyalty to the people they directly/indirectly work with on a day to day basis. Sometimes bosses have poor management styles that effects repor of the department. Negative influences can cause employees to feel less motivated to do their job well.

    Cons

    Some managers shouldn't be a manager. I'm not sure how they made it to that position, but their management style crested a stressful environment... and effect the employees mental state and working relationships. Some managers purposely sabotage what the CEO is trying to do to make P2 successful and to create a happy workplace that motivates them to go above and beyond to achieve greatness. Some bosses feel threatened by the people that they manage and find a way to prevent them from achieving personal/professional goals. Some managers shouldn't be managers.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the managers who are a misfit in their position and drive them OUT! They are the reason that hard workers leave. Their morales don't support the P2 Way. Some managers remove the standard to make it their own small company... and steal other employees ideas to make it their own. The manager I speak of is not a manger, but a troll that shadows the potentials of others and displays fake character to be something he is not. If only others could see him for what he is and decide to take action to free the employees from his siege of control.

    I have been working at P2 Energy Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good coworkers, benefits, location.

    Cons

    Overworked due to amount of clients they took on. Salaried for 40 hrs, but then having to work OT on weekend just to get things finished because of overload.

    Advice to Management

    Replace retired staff and staff that have left to work elsewhere. Don't just keep trying to spread work to other already extremely busy individuals.

    I worked at P2 Energy Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, and great ideas. I didn't meet anyone at P2 whom I did not get along with, and my immediate supervisor was amazing.

    I got the feeling that the people doing the actual work really wanted to do a good job.

    Benefits were rather decent. A great 401(k) plan and a decent health plan.

    Cons

    Above all, I left P2 because they couldn't pay my market salary. I even had my boss pushing for a higher salary, but it never materialized.

    The largest frustration with P2 was that each department and product team worked in silos. Getting help from other departments was nigh impossible, and only happened when upper management got involved.

    Unfortunately, getting upper management involved in anything was very difficult. Additionally, most of the upper management either refused to listen to concerns brought up by the lower rungs of the ladder, or they listened and blatantly blew off your concerns.

    There was lots of talks about how to improve things, but nothing ever actually improved.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the walls between departments and modernize your software.

    Cons

    Low pay, not much communication between upper & lower level employees, drab office environment,

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. I think talking to us like we are children can really put people off.

    Pros

    The smiling, happy admin assistant greets everyone with enthusiasm. A friendly generation of employees about to retire. Free food after meetings.

    Cons

    Culture. Products. Management. Low pay. Turnover. Built by acquisitions. Dishonest self promoters. No investment in acquired products. Only the good news travels up.

    Advice to Management

    Resign!!!

    Pros

    -Good starting PTO
    -Can work from home
    -Friendly and helpful co-workers
    -Great location
    -RTD pass
    -Pretty good benefits
    -Yearly bonus, provided company is doing well
    -Company is pretty active in trying to improve

    Cons

    -Pay is below market and raises are underwhelming
    -Little interaction with your actual manager; instead you spend most of your time with (and get most of your feedback from) scrum master and product owner. Unfortunately, these are not the people in charge of evaluating you, which is frustrating.
    -Outdated tech and poor documentation can make learning the system a slog.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with feedback on job performance and offer clear paths to larger raises.
