Some great folks work(ed) here. The pay is excellent and high standards of professional practice were maintained through a well-developed and implemented quality assurance/control program.However, a few suggestions in the interest of continuous improvement:- The need to diversify the business beyond the existing oil and gas client base is clear, and yet executive have failed to expand the EPC offerings into less volatile sectors and the growing clean tech space. This is a root cause of current hardships, even more so than the pandemic.- The business model is to make layoffs first, and ask questions later. This demonstrates a lack of ability by management to effectively leverage human capital assets towards productive work and business development. - Employee health and stress ought to be better overseen; some folks work far too many hours to be healthy.

Extremely difficult to perform work activities due to job requirements with limited direction about the proper site rules to follow and testing requirements. Having performed startup and operating services and written testing procedures for nuclear power plants, fossil fueled facilities and the systems for the destruction of mustard agent, I found it difficult to pin down the requirements for testing and certification of systems.
