    Pros

    Well Documented Applications and an experienced development team. This company provides flexible work hours and time off.

    Cons

    Too many processes in deploying simple upgrades. Users are not very focused and available due to being spread too thin.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify your application deployment processes. Hire more business users.

    Pros

    great pay but that's about it and they pay for your parking, people in the training department and hr are nice but that's about it

    Cons

    uncomfortable environment, they do not respect your education , under developed management ,

    Advice to Management

    hire managers according to longevity experience and expertise.If your the right color skin then your in. If you are black woman that is educated the will be prejudice towards you. You have people that have been working there for longer periods of time that he supervisor and that same supervisor is still asking questions and seeking guidance from those who have been there longer. Them they treat the temps like disposable garbage esp if you are black. its very clear what matters in this company and its if you have the right color skin you win.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. It's like working for a family company but it's a huge company - they just care.

    Cons

    Communication was lacking within the department that I am we are still working on this but it has gotten so much better! I cannot speak for other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for making it a great place to work!

    Pros

    If I could give 3.5/5 star rating I would, but I can't so I rounded up

    The Good:

    Great Health Care Benefits-The most affordable and best I have had in Houston
    6% 401k Match
    Generous time off policies-Vacation and Sick Time
    Nice offices in Houston
    Good Bonuses
    Competitive Salaries
    Little Micromanagement
    Good work life 1/2 Fridays
    Always a lot to do-Stay Busy
    Senior Managment seems very good to keep company going

    Cons

    The Could be Better:

    Seems like a dead end job-little growth outside your current role
    Kind of top heavy-lots of Directors and VP's
    Deficient in training-Asked to go to relevent industry training and was ignored
    Managers kind of leave you in the dark in my department
    Not really a small company anymore and still making small company mistakes with policies and workload
    Always a lot to do-A lot of catching up
    Office culture is kind of just blah-Don't really feel like a team, just a bunch of individuals coming together when stuff comes up, but they don't push stuff like United Way or other crap like that so I will give them kudos for that. -So really a neutral.
    Always a lot to do
    No pension-but they do have a LTIP so this is really a neutral

    Advice to Management

    Make personal growth and job growth a part of your employee retention plan, and thank you for giving us good health care benefits and not charging an arm and a leg. Hopefully it will stay that way.

    Pros

    Corporate is in Calgary. Many good people trying to improve infrastructure and assist employees in the field.

    Cons

    Worked in the LPG division in Schaefferstown, PA. District office was located there. Poor leadership at the District Office. All employees are unqualified for there positions and add no value to personnel in the field. More important to hire unqualified friends with the same religious background than to hire qualified employees. Shallow, petty, and vindictive leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Make a leadership change at the Schaefferstown District Office. Senior management needs to realize they are getting very little value from this group.

  10. Great people. Lots of freedom

    Pros

    Freedom to change things and make them better. All ideas were on the table and never turned down without looking into them.

    Cons

    Some of the corporate policies were flawed. As with any large company, the personal touches were missing and you turned into a number and not a name.

  11. Great company, poor local management.

    Cons

    Unqualified management, low pay considering the revenues

    Advice to Management

    You are a victim of the Peter Principle.
