Better Be Part of the Inner Circle
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 16, 2016
P&N did a lot of layoffs recently. They said that determining factors for who would be laid off would be based on qualitative measures. Then explain how someone who volunteered twice to do a special role that nobody wants to do, actually performed it for several weeks until a change in the project changed course, always had high productivity, never had a meeting with Management about any issues, and the only meeting ever in which all employees sat through one-on-one the employee got a raving review with 3-4 times the performance in their first three months there? Oh, they weren't in the inner circle. They didn't go to lunch with the two Managers. One Manager purposely (Logan P) never said hi to this person or cared. The other Manager was OK, but Logan was a know-it-all guy who thought he was funny, but most people talked bad about him behind his back.
Pros
Good balance between work and life, nice OT pay
Cons
Management has favorites, You will be laid off if you're not friends with them or hang after work Logan, you're still not funny and were the worst Manager I've EVER had, bar none

A great place to work

P&N is a great company to work for all in all, but you have to remain focus on your goals while you are there. Depending on the department you are in there is room for growth. You will learn a lot working for this company educational and life wise.

A job, not a career
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LAJune 5, 2015
Very good place to work if you are with the "in" crowd. Otherwise, it can be a nightmare. The work environment is hectic at times, but the benefits are great.
