Quality Control Associate (Former Employee) – Pasadena, TX – June 14, 2017
Not as relaxed an atmosphere as they try to portray. I think the management needs to be held to same standards as the Associates and Technicians. They schedule too many meetings and it waste unnecessary time that could be spent in other areas of the job.
Project Lead (Former Employee) – Pasadena, TX – May 25, 2017
Pinnacle does not respect employees, all they are to them are machines to wear out and toss away. work life balance is a joke and there is no training. the managers are incompetent and have no idea how to manage people. do your self a favor keep looking.
For CAD operators this is a good place to get your foot in the door. Lots of knowledge to start you out on a career in drafting but as they do not use industry piping standards and a lot of proprietary software there is not a very high ceiling for drafters.
Technician (Former Employee) – Pasadena, TX – June 30, 2016
Within the last couple months: the CEO was fired by an arbitrary board, jobs were slashed across the board sometimes reducing a department's workforce down to 50%and overall "restructuring". You'll be told its not lay offs but if they arent, I dont know what is.. Overall, there is a young inexperienced workforce at the bottom with a high turn over rate and little opportunities for proper training or development. Good for fresh out of college engineers or anyone else but not guaranteed to stick around for long.
If you're lucky to be at the nicer looking location, there is a ping pong table.
If you're at the ratchet location, the bathrooms are disgusting, there is mold in the building and hit or miss air conditioning. Good luck.
Initially appears like a "fun" place to work, but you soon find out there is a lot of favortism, inexperienced leaders that pretend to know their job. Some technicians get used as personal assistants (without added pay) so the leaders appear to do lots of work. You can ask several leaders the same question and get completely different answers to the same question. Training is subpar but they claim to train you. They tell you that they are looking for self reliant people but what they mean by self reliant is don't ask too many questions and figure it out on your own. If you are looking for a place that let's you color and make somewhat educated guesses then this a place for you. Pay is low. The company claimed sales figures for 2016 in 2015 and now they are not profiting. Raises were first promised in March and then changed to June. Many young people with great degrees are working here instead of getting a real career. "Intregrity" is lacking in this place. I'm sure at one time it was a great place. Recently many were fired, but didn't call it a layoff. Company has no CEO and is being run by board members (many with little experience) Overall I am disappointed with the integrity of the company leaders.
Great coworkers, great flexible hours, and the benefits. are good as well.
Few true leaders, too much favoritism, leaders lack integrity, no CEO at this time, Asset intengrity technicians work in an old building with possible air issues away from main campus
• Standard 9-5 schedule, sometimes work late depending on deadlines and client needs • Learned how to use a variety different types of software • Gained experience interpreting piping and instrument diagrams • The best part of the job were my co-workers. Most of the people who work there are very nice, smart and cool • The company is very young, lots of kids straight out of college or with little experience. This leads to lots of mistakes just due to being inexperienced
It's a facade of fun with minimal opportunity for advancement
Engineer (Former Employee) – Texas – March 7, 2016
The compensation is okay, but there are so many flaws in the way the company is run. The company is utterly inefficient in the way it functions and provides deliverables to it's clients. The employees are hostile and it's a cut-throat environment for who gets advancement. It seems to be on whoever management favors the most. The staff is inexperienced and most people in leadership positions have no outside works experience other than pinnacle. I do not think this is a place for experienced professionals to work.
Company wide meeting once a month
Hostile employees, hostile work environment, HR and management take sides in employee conflicts
