Poor management, workload is beyond unreasonable, dirty environment (they rarely clean), low morale, no flex time, no work/life balance, has a fraternity feel environment, core group of favorites attempt to run the company

Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAMarch 13, 2018
Good, not great place to work. Great place to get experience in the pipeline industry.
PTO is the best part. They work with you on working hours if you have events or child care needs.

Poor management and confused architectural direction
IT Specialist (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEFebruary 16, 2018
Poor management on managing resources. Very few full time resources manage several projects at the same time. Full time resources are given overwhelming responsibilities/priorities. organization is very confused in defining goals and implementation. Overall Architectural direction is lacking. Although there is job security, there is very less scope of advancement. Organization is very slow in adapting to new industry standards.
Pros
work hours
Cons
poor managment

Work life balance non existant
Tax Analyst (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NESeptember 19, 2017
It is a badge of honor in this environment to work 60+ hrs, to dedicate yourself, to return to work immediately following surgery. The thought process was 'everyone is working through something.'
Pros
no clocking in
Cons
no life

Very Strict and may have poor ethics
Engineer (Current Employee) –  OmahaSeptember 5, 2017
You will be reprimanded for minor mistakes. If you are in with the right people you may be able to get away with major things and still get the big promotion. Leadership is lacking due to promotion is the style of the good old boys. Ethics is talked a lot about, but when it comes down to it, it isn't very high. They have a good bonus program that seems to be going to the wayside. Goals are made but you may have no control over that goal.
Pros
nice people, good pay
Cons
low morale, poor work/life balance, poor management at many levels

Sr. Material Administrator (Former Employee) –  IowaApril 13, 2017
Company culture is poor. Upper management needs to take the time to see what the culture is really like instead of thinking the employee repore is good.

Horrible place to work!
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Omaha NEMarch 14, 2017
I worked as a contractor in Omaha for almost two years. The company is very process oriented and has a hard time veering from the process, even if business justification is made that supports a small change.

They wait until the last possible second to let you know whether or not your contract will be extended. Management cannot make decisions so there is a lot of down time. Managers are micro managers and offer no flexibility. The way things were done 20 years ago, is the way things are done today. Very stagnant environment.
Pros
Covered parking, if you got there early enough
Cons
micro managers, can't make decisions

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEApril 20, 2016
If you want to work in a place where you walk in set down and tap away at a computer this is your place. Creativity is at a minimum and continuing to do it they way it has always been done is encouraged.
