Good place to work at for someone with experience in the oil and gas industry
Sales Representative (Former Employee), La Porte, TXMarch 10, 2015
It is a large company with many opportunities, it is a family like atmosphere and most people who work there have been there for many years. Travel is sometimes required but they pay for all expenses.

Ok place to work
Drafter/Designer (Former Employee), La Porte, TXFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: free food on saturdays
Cons: micro-managers everywhere
Daily life stops once you get here. If there is an emergency at home you will not know about it unless someone tracks you down here. Micro-managers are always watching your every move, even so much as to peek around a corner to see what you are doing. The actual job is good and the non-manager people are great.

Fast paced and a great place to begin
Mechanic/Balance Tech (Current Employee), La Porte, TXJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: no experience needed
Cons: not much room for advancement
Great place to learn this field of work. At times it can be a fast paced place to work but a lot can be learned. Can be lots of overtime depending how the field is doing that year. The people there are great to work with and the hardest part would be tooling up over time if you are starting out.

High paying job with a lot of travel involved.
Project SAFETY MANAGER (Former Employee), Port Arthur, TXOctober 23, 2014
Pros: good pay, travel reinbursement, on call pay, and double time on weekends
Cons: a lot of travel involved, a lot of long hours on the job sites
While employed with Sulzer my duties were on various projects at the Motiva refinery in Port Arthur,
Texas. I was project safety manager for a various crews of millwrights, iron workers, welders, and
equipment operators who were performing turbine installations in several areas of the refinery. I was
required to work for and with Motiva’s safety personnel as well as implementing safety policies for
Sulzer Turbo Services on the job site along with enforcing Sulzer company policies.

Very stable company, for now. Beware which division you work in.
Lead AutoCAD Forms Draftsman (Current Employee), La Porte, TXJune 24, 2014
Pros: good benefits package, health related bonuses, end of year performance bonuses
Cons: shop has a prison lockdown feel to it instead of proud workers of a leading international company
If you don't like being rewarded for hard work and solving problems, as well as enjoy being subject to status quo of the management team, this is the place for you. Middle management is made up of some "good 'ol boys" who have worked together for decades. They (well, most of them) are very sharp when it comes to knowledge of the machines, but only one of them has any formal management training, much less people skills.

The apparent objective is to keep morale as low as possible and work as few people as possible to death. The opportunities for advancement are nil unless you are an engineer that has graduated from A&M.

The company itself seems to be a good company to work for. However, depending on which site and/or division you decide to venture to, you may be in for excessive doses of mental anguish.

Great Company, strong belief in education and advancement
Safety Technician, Lead Day Shift (Current Employee), Houston TexasJune 18, 2013

Large company with the feel of a family owned business. Employee's are very nice and easy to work with, only problem is there is a lot of favoritism.
