Not a Bad Place To work
Desktop Support Technician (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 15, 2017
As long as you are not a contractor you will like the place, if a contractor then not so great. Office is out of date and kind of depressing unless you are in the 7th floor which is modern.

Needs improvement
ICS-IT Auditor II (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 30, 2016
Hopefully with the Enbridge transaction will come a change of the overall culture. Outward the company looks great, but many workers feel unmotivated, disengaged etc. I believe the is equally on the part of the company as well as the workers, and therein is the issue.

Too Laid Back
Worker (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 20, 2016
Not the best learning environment. If you want a stress free job. Then this is the place for you. The environment is very relaxed, but depending on your personality this can be bad since almost nothing gets done. There is really no sense of urgency or need to improve things.
Pros
Easy to Easy
Cons
You won't be challenged

Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 20, 2016
Great company to work for. They are still strong despite the countries economic situation. Work/Life balance is good. Always work to do. Downside of being a contractor there is very little to no growth opportunities.

Good 'ole boy environment
Lead Cost Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 8, 2016
Galleria location is ideal, depending on demographics of your manager you can take advantage of the work life balance the company offers. Office space is old depending on what floor your on. Cafeteria food is good. A lot of the management team and supervisors have been there for over 30 years. Very limited in leadership diversity. Departments function like indenpendent mom-pop shops. Very clique-ish. Better working relationship with the contractors and newer employees.
Pros
Gym, 9/80, Cafeteria
Cons
Lack of diversity at every level of management, Many old employees just buying time to retirement

Great work life balance culture
HR intern (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 29, 2015
Interned for three months. This is a very family oriented culture. Work life balance is great and things get done through the people. My internship had incredibly high visibility and they give you opportunities to shine. If you impress them they will reward you and you will be seen. The culture allows you to work as hard as you like. If you are incredibly driven you will shine and they will take note of your abilities.
