Was a good company
Technician (Former Employee) –  FloridaJuly 16, 2015
Was a good company before it was bought by Stewart and Stevenson. New s and s policies are terrible. Basically give you the very minimum required to be legal. No raises or advancement. Very dangerous working environment due to extremely old and unmaintained equipment.
Pros
Now a days hard to think of any.

ship is sinking
Worked as mid level manager (Current Employee) –  LouisianaJune 21, 2015
Stewart & Stevenson was a good company. Pay and benefits are okay. A lot of favoritism and unethical practices. Layoffs are common. There are too many greedy people in upper management.

No Longer a Good Company
Manufacturing (Former Employee) –  HoustonApril 1, 2013
Stewart & Stevenson was once a good company to work for but it isn’t any more. The owner’s primary concern is maximizing their profits. The management is extremely unethical. The backstabbing management will lie regularly to protect their position. They will blame mistakes or their lack of management skill on the lower level workers. They have no problems greatly exaggerating mistakes to make a lower level worker look bad, therefore taking the focus off of them. They will try to intimidate people to do extra work, and travel without proper reimbursement. The company owner(s) will spend as little money as possible. There is almost no investing money to make things more efficient and save money down the road. There is an extremely high turnover. The people left to do all the work are almost always short handed and stressed. Working conditions are inadequate. There is very little growth opportunities, for advancement. You may have to wait many years, after someone retires or dies to move up.
Pros
2 weeks vacation, sick time, insurance, disability, maybe a turkey at christmas.
Cons
poor management, layoffs, overly critical enviroment, unprofessional
