Not the best place for advancement or compensation
Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee) –  Carpinteria, CAJanuary 12, 2016
Management don't value their employees and their hard work. Employees are given work that is not in their job description and on top of that you get a review every 5 years if even.

non responsive interview process
Controller (Former Employee) –  CarpFebruary 14, 2015
Interviewed for a management position. HR gets involved, process dies in the process. Clearly qualified for the job requirements, had a strong interview in the HR phone screen, met 1:1 with hiring manager and HR. And NEVER heard back from the company. I won't waste any additional time getting back in touch to further inquire or express continued interest if the company doesn't feel it important to honor or respect the interview process or the candidates that are qualified. If it is bad up front while you are a candidate, it's going to be bad as an employee. Believe it! No thanks Helix.
Pros
still thinking...
Cons
the interview process

Not a boring place to work
HR Generalist (Former Employee) –  Carpinteria CAJune 25, 2014
Excellent job learning all the labor laws, culture, and payroll need of the Costa Rica branch.
A typical day at work will be checking the email for any urgent matters or last minute projects.
Reply to emails. Review resumes for all the openings that were under my direction if the candidate meet the requirements set a phone interview.
Run a report to make sure that all the employees punch in or out in order to have the payroll ready to sent.
Complete any other project pending.
Answer employees questions in regards to benefits, payroll or any other labor issue.
Check the worker's comp case, update files and employee in general.
Assist to safety meetings.
The hardest part to do was try to work with the employees that were there before the company was bought. It was hard to change their mind and were not too happy. Also the hardest part is that the company went for too many changes and affect employees as well as managers.
What I enjoyed the most is that I was able to do different things every day, no day was the same. i enjoyed visiting the clean room and talk to the employees, make jokes with them, make them feel that the quality of their job was really important and saves lives.
Pros
employees did not get sick time working for a medical company
Cons
have a great parent company and hopefully changes take place
