Extremely poor management!

Production goals come before safety!!! Nepotism and cronyism alive and well. Not what you know but who you know. Plant operated as a dictatorship with all decisions made by plant manager.

Company has potential for greatness, but...
Manager, Design & Documentation Systems (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 22, 2018
When I started working at Cheniere, I was excited to be joining a small company that was about to grow rapidly, but needed to mature organizationally.
Unfortunately, the company's mid- and senior-level management in the various departments had developed a 'silo' mentality and it became difficult, if not impossible, to effect change.
Pros
Good workspace, decent benefits, generous compensation package for laid-off employees
Cons
Poor communication between mid-level and senior management

Nice Company
Project Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 29, 2018
The atmosphere at Cheniere Energy was very nice and relaxed. A typical work day is very independent. No one really micro manages. Everyone is responsible. A very adult atoosphere.
Pros
Great atmosphere
Cons
None

Procurement Purchasing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 23, 2018
Worked with Cheniere for over 7 years. Awesome work culture, good benefits, flex hours, understanding co-works. Everyone's opinion counts and staff are supported to be productive. You are allowed to take care of family matters whenever but meet up with your job obligations accordingly.

Productive and fun place to work...
Lead Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 13, 2017
Job required someone who is extremely organized and task orenited, so duties can be prioritized allowing for interruptions with urgent items that need special attention.
At the end of each day and at the end of each week I prioritized my duties for the following day or week using a Franklin calendar to keep records of activities.
Provided direction to engineering team and construction leadership responsibilities completing short-term and long-term oil and gas unit projects for delivery to operations.
Reviewed drawing packages provided by construction design engnieering team and issued comments for teview and revision.

It all depends on who you work for and the culture in that department. There have been many changes in the management and culture in the last few years.

Management needs improvement
Sr. Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cameron Parish, LAAugust 11, 2017
Management needs improvement, lack of procedures, work instructions, leadership. No one here knows how to correct run a project around here, can be frustrating. Project Management wings it, full of rookie's.
Pros
Refrigerators filled w/drinks and fruit
Cons
Management or better the lack of good managment

Horrible Management
IT Squatter (Former Employee) –  HoustonJuly 12, 2017
Probably the worst management team put together in history. Too many micro-managing know nothings. They do not even care about efficiency or becoming the best. All they care about is the bottom line and putting warm bodies in seats. Make America Great Cheniere!
Pros
Pay was good
Cons
Horrible Management

Best job I've ever had
Supervisor, Document Control - Pipeline (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 18, 2017
Loved every moment of being employed at Cheniere until the new CEO came in and laid off an amazing and talented group of people. I was planning retirement from this company. Charif Souki was an amazing CEO. I wish he was still there.

Insufficient run time
Project Controls Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 19, 2016
Insufficient run time to accurately gauge how the company functions as a business. The management seemed to have its head on straight when it came to taking care of employees and keeping a sense of perspective. I don't have anything negative to say.
Pros
soda fridge was a nice touch
Cons
none to speak of
