Good Company with too many Management Levels
Advisor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 2, 2017
Overall Hess is a good company to work for. They have a good pay scale and excellent benefits. However, for the size of the company, there are too many management layers.In fact, with their recent round of layoffs, they said they were going to eliminate layers. Instead they concentrated layoffs on senior technical staff and kept managers.
The layoffs were bad of course, but this is the oil business. It is part of the normal business cycle. It is how you handle it. Hess handled it decently, but they were too careful to protect the wrong employees.
The office is great and the work environment is good. Great location in downtown Houston with plenty of access to everything in Houston. Good onsite dining. Discounted Starbucks level coffee bar on location in addition to all the normal free coffee on each floor.
Flexible schedule, dining. location, pay, benefits
Limited opportunities, limited management skill
