Project HSE Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Mont Belvieu, TXJune 23, 2017
It was an exciting opportunity to be part of a major expansion project from grassroots. A few months into the project it became apparent that there was a lack of support from project management regarding issues that pertained to safety.

Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 13, 2015
Overall, they are nice people to work with. Was encouraged by managers to improve personal skill sets which reinforced motivation for attaining project goals. There were times where the project scheduling interfered with progress of deliverables. Though a challenge, the project team was able to reassign priorities to make the deadlines. As any project goes, there are lessons learn, to identify project managerial matters along with best design practices to use and how to plan accordingly to the schedule of future work. All in all, I enjoyed working here.
