It was a great place to incorporate a family life with work industry. Very friendly place to work, everyone was easy to work with. Unfortunately, due to the oil and gas industry going bad, they had to lay off a great deal of their employees.

Galloping Incompetence, Misalignment, Nepotism, Dishonesty
Former Projects Employee (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, TXMay 16, 2012
Ventech has to rate as one of the WORST places to work in EPC in Houston. It is a family business managed by family members and their grades-school and high-school cronies that are all now forty-something. Nepotism is the rule rather than the exception. The network of buddies and family members is worse than a Masonic Temple.

The vast majority of the operations are performed by the seat-of-the-pants from selective memory leading to a steady stream of problems. The “Don’t tell me any bad news” attitude combines with the “kill the messenger” mentality to keep problems buried until they surface in the field. Then the finger-pointing fun begins. Management is so numb to its own incompetence that it celebrates when a piece of equipment is set on a foundation and it actually fits!

There is no quality system. There is no management auditing. There is no training. This way, no managers or department heads can be held accountable. The misalignment of management goals and behaviors is staggering.

Departments are all run differently with different and vague policies. They keep rigidly in their silos, tossing completions over the wall to the next group. Project management encourages this as though it’s a competition.

There is only the beginning of a homegrown ERP system. Everything but the time and payroll are managed by spreadsheets. With so many decent ERP systems designed specifically for EPC companies, you have to ask why anyone would try to build their own. Well, it’s the cheapest way of course! And that, in a nutshell, is the Ventech way of doing everything.

Ventech's fabrication
  more... shop is as disorganized as it is large. Methods and supervision are strictly field and shade-tree. There's nothing that looks remotely like manufacturing. Material and shop errors abound.

Customers, suppliers, and employees are treated equally with heaping amounts of contempt.

If the unremediated mold in the engineering building doesn't get you, maybe you'll have a heart attack from the stress.

Unless you can see it for the entertainment value, just stay away!

Pros
highly entertaining behaviors
Cons
everything else
