I have been working at Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline full-time (More than 3 years)
The best part of working for Southern Star is the benefits offered. It's a little known fact (probably something that should be promoted more) that we're one of the only companies in the area (possibly in the state) offering a pension plan in addition to a 401(k) that's matched. Conceivably, that could end with retiring a handful of years sooner than you'd be able to otherwise.
The culture is a lot to get used to if you come from a "shark" environment. There's a defined management structure, but not thick layers separating these folks. For example: the CEO came up and introduced himself to me on my second day and we talked baseball for 40 minutes. I didn't find out who that person was (I mean who he really was) until a couple days after the fact. If you're used to really defined separation of authority levels, it takes some getting used to.
Advice to Management
A lot of those who complain (I hear them at coffee stations periodically) haven't ever worked for any other company. I've worked at 4 others (all in different industries) and none of them come close. Southern Star promotes (almost exclusively) internally, encourages education and employee development, and pays competitively with the area and the industry (while offering leading retirement benefits). We have it amazing here and don't let anyone tell you differently.
