    Wrong Priorities

    Global Trade Compliance Manager (Former Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsGreat coworkers
    Good benefits
    Good salary (competitive, at least for managers)

    ConsManagement just started paying dividends...and then laid off employees. Communication is poor and they are out of touch with the people who do the real work of the company. They are only concerned about shareholders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLayoffs every other year do not project a stable company to shareholders or anyone else. There is a lot of waste that could be cut to reduce expenses, but you need to ask the people that know - non-managerial employees. Go beyond the VPs to get more insight into your company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place for experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsPay is competitive within oil and gas industry and benefits are good.

    It is very easy to get promoted within 2-3 years, sometimes even less.

    Company is very safety conscious.

    ConsLots of processes to get anything done thus making one's work harder than it actually is.

    Turnover rate is relatively high within company, thus promotions are due to back-filling. This leads to people not being experienced with their job.

    Lack of communications between different departments.

    Lack of training within organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess micromanaging and processes. Need to retain and develop current employees rather than constantly hiring new ones.

    Shaky waking up everyday wondering what will happen to the company.

    Field Service Technician (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsKnowledgeable technicians and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed working in the field with no supervision and being trusted to complete tasks with trust. Pay is very competitive.

    ConsBusiness is very up and down meaning you never know when you might have long periods of time with no work or pay. Training is still being developed and not up to par with the demands of the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on sustaining the company and less on developing different services that technicians have little or no knowledge of.

    Great culture, great values, great people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDuring my time at Tesco I enjoyed my coworker's presence. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and if you need help anyone in any department is wiling to help you out.

    ConsSometimes communication is a bit fuzzy between departments and it takes awhile to get some things done unless a lot of upper management gets on people to do something.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on strengthening communication and emphasizing main goals

    Nice People but Low Pay

    Accountant (Current Employee) Tokyo (Japan)

    ProsPeople are generally nice. There are maybe some annoying people but not many.

    ConsSalary is never increase. Even when it increased, flat increase for everybody so it decreased my motivation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
