    Pros

    Good medical and dental at a reasonable rate.

    Cons

    There is a lack of quality management, leadership and direction in the corporate HR department. As well as, a hostile working environment that promotes bullying and isolation. Don't look to be promoted. Little to zero growth opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    The incredibly high turnover rate in the HR department is seen as a clear indication of poor management by corporate.

    I have been working at TETRA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Company truck, health insurance, fairly steady work

    Cons

    No incentives to go above and beyond. No structure for promotions, it is a bunch of buddy buddy. Higher ups are more interested in padding their pockets than they are taking care of employees. Pay is terrible and you get what you pay for.

    Advice to Management

    With subpar pay, at least develop your employees, quit waiting for grants to do training, if an employee asks for a course and it makes sense to his/her job then figure out a way to let them do it. Don't promise bonus' and then decide not to give them because times are tough.

    Pros

    Good headquarters location in The Woodlands, TX. Good technology. Focus on HSE from top to bottom of the Corporation. Some very kind and knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    Absolutely zero loyalty here. Innovator's contributions are not recognized. There are bosses and underlings that form clicks and stab the middle managers in the back, so the underlings can take the middle manager's job. Unprofessional school-like atmosphere. The wrong technical people in power.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at your management. They put on a show in front of the senior management but change when senior management is not around.
