Productive and fun workplace with a ping pong table from example applied perfectly
Regulatory Compliance / Engineering Specialist (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 9, 2015
A typical day would be variable and dependent on project. From creation of a SAFE chart and Safety Flow schematic from P&IDs / creating an Instrument Detail drawing. Creating a Training program for engineering, to review of Federal Register for changes that might impact current projects.
Working for an engineering company with multiple disciplines allowed for a lot of learning opportunities.
Management style was somewhat casual, with an open door policy. Interest in employee opinions was regularly sought for improvement.
My co-workers were some of the best, from Mechanical, Process, Civil, Instrumentation Engineering and Project Managers & Engineers.
I would count freezing or cooking in the South Texas desert on occasional field jobs as one of the hard parts.
Walking a new engineer through a field facility and explaining how it all worked and see the lights going off as they understood or having an engineer say "so that's where that comes from" during a course in Code of Federal Regulations would fall under a most enjoyable part of the job.
a very real sense of camaraderie within the project teams
