    Pros

    Great Benefits and good pay

    Cons

    Don' waste your time working for Kinder Morgan Goldsmith,Tx. Management is a liar and will deny anything you say when put on the spot. Will not tell you the work schedule till after your hired and quit your other job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be let go and hiring within. Somebody that knows whats going on. Has horrible communication skills and very demanding. Uses his job title as a threat.

    Former Employee - Public Relations Consultant in Mandeville, LA

    I worked at Kinder Morgan as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Salary. Full stop. Oil and Gas aren't going anywhere.

    Cons

    Long hours, constant belittling of employees - especially those on Public Relations team. 12 hour days were common, pointless daily task lists were expected, as were calls from the PR lead late at night to receive verbal lashings concerning the inane minutia of the day.

    The entirety of the highly intelligent, highly dedicated PR team had quit within one year due to the working conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a moral PR lead.

    Appreciate the value that each employee brings to the table. Grow from the experiences of others. Support every employee. Be intolerant of hostile work environment situations.

    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Unfortunately, I cannot think of one Pro.

    Cons

    Sr. Management wants low injury rates, but has not idea what it takes. Rather than develop solid programs and a cooperative culture, the COO has implemented a culture of fear and discipline around safety. Employees and management fear reporting....now you have your low numbers. Unfortunately, the low numbers are gained via unethical methods. Regional Manages lie to try to get information and influence. Everything is done on a shoe string budget, therefore improvement is nearly impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some research on what it takes to create a positive safety and work culture. Ensure top leadership sets the right business tone. Get the COO out. After leaving, I met multiple people in the safety field who knew about KM and knew to stay away. KM is gaining a very negative image

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Have not found one yet.

    Cons

    Labor intensive job. Very little down time. Work hard for 90 percent of the time. Equipment is in poor dirty conditions. Go overboard on some safety items but over look some of the simple stuff. Have to ask for PPE (safety equipment)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come spend a day in our shoes and see it you could do half the work you are asking for in a safe and timely manner.

    Overworked valueless tasks in a Pressure cooker environment

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There's a few good people left..................

    Cons

    Pressed and stressed for zero value demands from power struggle management. Chasing down the right solution has been replaced by the blame game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete restructuring is needed before all talented employees are lost. Restore the trust.

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say really not a word

    Cons

    Local management is incompetent and fearful of anyone with potential so in fear they attack and try to remove what they perceive as a threat. If your are competent you want to go somewhere else ths place will waste your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do an HR survey at the local terminal level and ask for specifics on the current VP right on down and you will have a clear pcture of the core issue.
