    Pros

    Kinder Morgan has great benefits and excellent exposure to other areas of the business. It is a fast paced and growing company.

    Cons

    Kinder Morgan could improve its career development and placement tracks. To move up, you need to be more proactive and look for jobs on your own.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to continue to develop employees and place them on advanced career paths. Having more available tuition reimbursement options would be a great benefit.

    Pros

    The Company's fee structure has insulated it from the up and down oil prices. You will be able to keep your job here.

    Cons

    Kinder Morgan runs very lean and expects a lot from its employees. They do reward hard work with advancement and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Good aquisitions and expansions on the horizon. If only the environmentalists would get out of the way.
