Secretary (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – May 21, 2013
Pros: well we did not get discounts on our utilities as a lot of people assumed, but if you worked hard it was considered one of the best companies to feel you were secure there.
Cons: i am sorry, i cannot think of anything i would have changed. no cons.
I had the pleasure of starting out with the company when it only had 12 employees and was fortunate to get to watch it grow to the strong company it is today. The supervisors were very kind to us and we always knew we were appreciated. My co-workers and myself always practiced teamwork. The hardest part of the job was knowing when to actually stop working – more... and go home to our families since the work was fascinating and so very important to the community. I cannot describe what was the most enjoyable because all of us felt like it was our family away from home. – less

Coal-miner (Current Employee), Kosse, Texas – February 20, 2013
Pros: free lunches for management everyday, training for extra marital affairs.
Cons: too many
Not sure if all sites with in this company are like this but the management here is a joke. If you are a liar, Have no problems committing adultery, can talk out of both sides of your mouth without making eye contact, and your a racist, then this is the place for you! If you are honest, truthful, and believe in doing the right thing please do not waste – more... your time. Like all companies they preach ethics and I think that some there do understand what that means but they are not in management or supervision. I have know some pretty awesome people here run into the ground because they knew too much about what was happening in supervision and upper management. They will destroy you if you do not conform to their ways of doing business. – less

Business Sales Coordinator (Current Employee), Irving, TX – October 22, 2012
Pros: work from home when needed.
Cons: pay, advancement, culture and values are a turn off here
This place is okay if you're happy in stagnated positions. There isn't any room for advancement in my area, management is almost non existant and pay is not all that. Well it's sort of a who you know not what you know atmosphere here. I will say that they are very flexible with schedules. If you can work from home and need to be out of the office they – more... are accommodating. The best part of my day is the Monday morning prayer in the gym. It helps to keep me positive during the week. – less
