    I worked at Enterprise Products

    Pros

    Pay was good, co-workers good, benefits good. During my time they had a very liberal sick leave program. Pretty much take off at a whim.

    Cons

    Management/supervision will listen to your advice and suggestions then ignore you and do nothing. I mentioned safety issues many times and followed the hierarchy up. I had an unusual connection with Mr. Creel, even lunched with him downtown. Finally mentioned I had some issues, how should I deal with it. He referred me to two VP's and after much anguish I went to one of them with the issues I had tried to solve with lower levels. Inside of one month many changes were made and are ongoing. Less than six months after I exposed the poor safety culture, the West Storage facility blew up. I wish I had acted sooner. After that I began to feel much pressure and less cooperation and help from the safety department. It was obvious I was on my way out. That pressure along with them putting me in unsafe situations broke my health and they would not find work for me and I was 'eased out' on LTD. I am hoping that the culture has changed for the better but from what I read on here, it doesn't sound much improved and turnover rate is worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they will listen because they behave like most of corporate America. The money factor is what it is all about and that is important. However, I would hope that they could get more people oriented. They say that people are their most valuable asset but it doesn't relate to better treatment. I don't know, it's just I sure do have less stress now that I am gone from the company. I teach safety now and am self employed and much happier. I wish them the best.

    I have been working at Enterprise Products full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They pay good for your experience.
    Good benefits.
    Some good people to work for if you get the right manager and team mates.
    Good schedule and you get almost all of your days off.
    I would recommend a friend to get training to go elsewhere.

    Cons

    Prompt the wrong people, if you're not a suck a** forget it even though you have more knowledge and may be better for the job.
    Management lacks direction. Managers are puppets for the upper management.
    They PREACH safety but all management cares about is the bottom dollar and how much money is made at all cost.
    There's a sever lack of professionalism.
    No bonuses or sick time.
    You work under a microscope and everyone wants to place blame elsewhere. It's constant CYA. You are a robot and better not make a mistake.
    Large control room and have lost the TEAM atmosphere.
    People will step on you to get ahead and try to make you look bad to better themselves.
    Management lets you know you're just a pee'on and there's constant micro-management and braidment from Management.
    Management blows the smallest things out of proportion and lets everyone know about it.
    Over worked and now one cares.
    High turnover rate.
    If you want good pay and benefits you have to put up with way to much politics, but that comes with the large setting of the conrtol room. There is a clear divide among control groups. I would take less money for less headache and BS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit putting puppets in positions they can't handle and have folks that will give you a NO answer even when you don't want to hear it, sometimes that needs to be said. Listen to your employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was completely satisfied with my employment at Enterprise for the first 6 years and truly looked forward to retiring with the company. However, after many leadership changes in my area, I found myself having to change employers just to get away from the disappointing leadership. It was very evident (even overheard) that employee satisfaction was not a priority on the department heads list. Unfortunately my perception was shared by the majority in my group and even known by a TOP executive and nothing changed.

    Pros

    Good benefits; but comparable to many here. Housing available; very important in this booming oil area.

    Cons

    The most mismanaged facility I have ever seen in my life. The only thing missing is a revolving door on the front of the building. Concerns go unaddressed. Quality people exiting left and right due to the incredibly poor managerial skills of existing management, who get an A' in reactionary management style', but an ' F' in resource utilization and leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enterprise seems to be a company that cares. Get a risk assessment team up here pronto and conduct exit interviews as well as current employee interviews. Reassess...no matter what the cost in short term profit! Do not rely on the opinions of lower level management above the terminal manager because you are being misled as to what is really happening here - many dissatisfied workers.

    Pros

    CEO very knowledgeable leading the company to profitability. If all you want is a decent paycheck, then Enterprise is an OK place to work. Bus fare (or parking) is subsidized. Half day Fridays. Good health care. stock options. Pension 4% match on 401k

    Cons

    Leadership does not cross over to IT dept. Spoiled user with a 'small company' mentality. Micro-managers who don't have the knowledge or experience to make a decision and enforce the 'rules'. No work from home opportunities.
