Discriminatory Corporate Management

Manager (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Atmos Energy full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThere are no pros to working for this company.

ConsThis corporate group will lie concerning the culture here and almost brainwash you into taking the position. Management in the Tax group is racist and it is very demeaning place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean out your current management group

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

OK company overall, but management often turns a blind eye on their employees and their accomplishments.

Confidential (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Atmos Energy full-time for more than 3 years

ProsStable organization, has several opportunities to give back to the community, always closes early prior to a Holiday, big supporter of United Way

ConsManagement is too focused on themselves and not the general population. Not willing to make changes to keep pace with today's technology. Subscribes to the "we've always dome it this way" methodology.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes and ears.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great place to settle in for the long haul

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Atmos Energy full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCorporate culture is amazing.
Work/Life balance is extremely manageable.
Places high value on training and development.
Time off requests are met with relative ease.
Company cares a great deal about employee well being.
Great benefits.

ConsPeople are in their jobs for a long time, often not leaving unless a job happens to open up above them or a position is created for them.
Company does a poor job of removing under-performers.
While "total package" is great, salary levels are low for comparable positions in other places.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot much. Think you're doing a great job. Probably need some more rigor around job/performance reviews but other than that, it's a very well run company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lack of leadership

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Atmos Energy full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe people are great! Wonderful employees who really care about the job and internal/external customers.

ConsLack of leadership. Management is coasting on long-term employee experience to just handle stuff, without providing direction and training. Decision-making is too distributed, with too many "cooks in the kitchen'. Communication is haphazard and unfocused, required dedicated employees to seek out critical information rather than relying upon leadership to provide clear instructions.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't rely upon 'dotted lines' in the org chart. Instead, be clear about job responsibilities and roles. Provide clear leadership. Don't push the touchy-feely culture shaping classes so much. Provide clear goals and expectations so employees know what to do instead of guessing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I don't think I could be happier in a job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Atmos Energy

ProsAtmos Energy has a culture where everyone is pulling in the same direction. There is a genuine love for the work and love and respect for each other. We call it AtmoSpirit and it is expected of all employees

ConsStarting salaries tend to be on the low side. New hires often are little bewildered by the complexities of a gas utility.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on keeping the main thing, the main thing

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
