      Poor Management in Struggling Industry

      Jul 26, 2019 - Manager in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Had several different job responsibilities so I was able to gain a lot of experience in different areas

      Cons

      Struggling industry - just went thru merger with Ensco. As a result, management expects employees to do several different jobs for no increase in pay. Management is demanding and tries to complete too many projects and changes at once. They are unable to effectively prioritize and goals change like the wind. Employees haven’t received raises in last 5 years and management is only interested in how much they can squeeze out of you with little to no care or loyalty to the employee. Senior management are only looking out for themselves and are not held accountable for poor decisions and poor management.
