Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 17, 2016
A typical day at work would be as soon as you walk in the door, you're up and out of your seat to assist a co-worker or to distribute supplies. The most enjoyable part of my job is definitely meeting new people
Technician/Mining (Former Employee) – PA – September 28, 2015
Most of my colleagues that I dealt with on a daily basis were great. Management was poor. Job performance meant nothing. You could be a great worker (efficient, safe) but get looked over for other people that wasted time but looked like they were doing more work. Quite a few people were overlooked for different opportunities they were more than qualified for.
Many promises were made of expanding our projects and the opportunity to work on different projects, but in the end it always fell through.
Certain management was gossipy and highly unprofessional, especially if you were a decent looking female.
Some legitimate concerns for safety were brushed off or you'd be given a response along the lines of, "you'll be fine."
My review is based on the fact that, like most companies, they lost their focus on the employees, their source of income. They become Bean Counters with one goal, show profits for the Share Holders. They did this by reorganizing, with a new Company Name and new Management. Now to show a profit they lay off their sources of income.
Document Controls Specialist (Current Employee) – Holyoke MA – September 2, 2015
Management is not appreciative of the overtime you put in. Unless you literally make your life revolve around work you won't survive here. People have worked until 2:00am-3:00am on numerous accounts. It takes a different breed to be able to work at a place like this. If you're fortunate enough to get one of the very few good managers in this place than be grateful because the majority of people have managers that are unappreciative and play favorites.
It's a good job if you're a workaholic
There are many things that are done and not done which then creates a hostile work environment
Role - Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 17, 2013
This is a good solid company that has a good workforce and great potential. The employees are very good technically and are also very enjoyable to work with. The company is growing rapidly which should provide some good opportunities but it also holds some risks.
The management is mixed (separate financial and technical) with the linear hierarchy and the seat of authority being very confused. As a result the management can be confused with a mix of very good managers and mediocre managers. The technical managers are excellent but the financial managers have an odd decision making process.
excellent 401k contributions, flexible hours
extra unpaid working hours expected, limited discliplines
ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLES/ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT II (Current Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – May 15, 2014
Typical day at work consists of compiling backup documents and data needed for invoicing. Also do Cost Control Reporting on several projects. Putting together invoices for several projects and checking those invoices against backup. I have expanded my skills in Excel through this company. My co-workers are a fun group and we get along very well. Management doesn't always make you feel valuable or needed. Not much room for advancement and they don't utilize all staff to their individual skill sets. I like the people I work with, but management leaves much to be desired.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Holyoke, MA – September 2, 2015
Great group of managers in the office/department I worked in. Pipeline is a very fast paced division so they require a lot of hours. Typical week was 50 hours Mon-Fri with weekend work usually required in the summer season. People are very nice and they had a great feeling of team unity. Everyone does well working together across departments.
Hired for the possibility of future work, laid off after 4 months
Designer III (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – January 13, 2014
What can I really say here? I worked in a satellite office that was basically run by the lead designer. The main office was down in Houston and they hired me on the prospect of upcoming work that never happened. I took advantage of that time to learn more and grow in my knowledge.
I am sure that if I had been able to be hired in Houston the story might be different, but that is not the case and I don't dwell in the past.
It opened up my eyes to the possibility there is more out there and for that I am greatful. It got me off my butt and moving forward after being stuck in a rut.
laid off after 4 months, no management besides lead designer.
Senior Estimating Specialist (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – July 4, 2013
I was responsible for supporting any HMM office in the U.S. or Canada that needed estimating assistance. Project managers emailed me work assignments which I did and returned in the same manner. I worked independently without supervision, and always met project schedules.
pleasant working conditions, flexible schedule, telecommuting, benefits
My most favorable experience was working at Kenexa which deveoped ProveIt. I worked with the head of accounting for all Kenexa locations along with other canditates chosen to improve Oracle to fit the company's needs as Oracle was set up for industrial billing as it did not fill a service industries needs. We all worked closley to set the standards for our billing required by our clients.
The most enjoyable part of my work was the fruition with the implamentation of Oracle to fit our billing needs and working closely with communications with my co-workers.
I was learning alll of the time sometimes on my own since I was set up at home with vitual private network allowing me to better my skill set.
Atypical day at work was mostly billing, pulling backup for reimbursable expenditures. Answering to Lisa Butler, the Controller at the time regarding A/R and A/P.
working with an excellent talented group of people
