It’s a good paying job but can be long hot hours and the field is none for being a dangerous job. The crews are fun to work with and give you a feeling of accomplishment to see the final project on an line being built.

Cyber Security Jr. Analyst (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 1, 2018
It is a very nice company with a good working environment and very nice people. It is also a stable company with good benefits in the long run if you plan to stay for a long period of time. There is also a lot to learn from the company if you just got out of college or at a entry level position in your professional field.
