    Company creates low morale

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFor the first year it was good...but then I went brain dead.

    ConsJust read the job description they have for a current opening for a Business Development Manager and it should give you a very good idea of how pathetic this company is...they can't even write a job description correctly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo everyone a favor and quit.

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

    I learned a great deal about Politics in Business, it isn't how good of a job you are doing here, its butt kissing.

    App Analyst (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsYou get to learn how to deal with off the charts politics and back stabbing which can help later on in your career.

    ConsHorrible management, idiotic decision making, offshore reliance (terrible offshore company btw), inter-team fighting was rediculous. 95 percent of the top employees left, only the blood suckers and pretenders stay around. The would have non-sensical layoffs every couple of years and ruin peoples morale and lives for no reason other than to make middle management happy. This was honestly the most disgusting place I have ever worked with people in high places that will have bad karma for a long long time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop letting your top talent go, or laying them off. Stop thinking you know so much.

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

    Terrible job, pay is goodTerrible work, but the pay is good Terrible work but the pay is good,

    Plant Operator (Former Employee) Greeley, CO

    ProsThe pay is good enough to make a descent living.

    ConsSafety is compromised, even though they talk about safety. Vessell and tanks falling apart but supervisors are slow to upgrade or repair equipment. Good old boy crowd, I was asked a couple of times if I would mind racial jokes. If you are caucasion you will probably get hired, any other color; you will have to jump through hoops.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe information you get from you supervisors is filtered information, supervisors not being forthright in all information given to upper management.

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

    Overspent, Overworked, little to no foresight

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company has gone on a massive hiring campaign to hire young talent. Good experience if you are young and trying to get your feet wet.

    ConsThey can't keep anyone after you get your one year or so of experience. Also can't keep experienced staff due to non-competitive compensation and vacation policies.

    No work life balance. Unrealistic workload. Travel up to 100% with no incentives.

    The company does not have the resources to upgrade systems and equipment. Field equipment always breaking down, compromising employees and safety. In offices, shared services do not have adequate systems to handle the growth the company is chasing which results in poor support to the business.

    New Talent Management program only allows for a small percentage of employees to receive a raise (less than 5% of each department receive a raise). If you receive a raise, it is usually not more than 5%.

    Denver office personnel are out of touch of what business is like in the field.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage office personnel to spend time in the field so they can perform their support function better, especially HR.

    Increase vacation time policy for field employees.

    Appreciate your employees. Compensate them better. At the end of the day, employees go to work to get paid. There is not a substitution for money when it comes to employment, especially when the workforce is overworked. If you don't compete with your competitors in terms of compensation, you are not competing at all. This is evident in the turnover rating.

    Spend the money to upgrade systems so that the employees have less headaches, and the overall workflow is less manual and more productive.

    Incredibly incompetent company

    Field (Current Employee) Midland, TX

    ProsI get a company truck

    ConsSafety. Incompetent senior management with no midstream experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSE NM system is in bad shape. Lines are constantly over MAOP (maximum allowable pressure). The company is not investing in repairs and only thinking two weeks ahead. Some of the gas we handle is dangerous stuff at high pressure. I plan on leaving DCP. There is potential for disaster.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees as though you'd like them to stick around

    Never have been treated with such disdain from upper management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSalary is just adequate. If yo u can work your way into management you can get away with murder.
    One of best "Good ole Boys" club in the Oil and Gas industry.

    ConsUnbelievable work load and stress levels. Field personal feel that upper management are completely ignorant of what has to be done by hourly employees. I have even heard it said by one of the management team that "If you don't like the way things are done leave".
    They will never make the "Best Companies to work for outside of office personal in Denver.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would help if you got back to the roots and remember that without the "little guys" guys out here in the heat and cold YOU wouldn't have a job. The gains we saw in employee relations under the previous management team has vaporized.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
