    Pros

    Overall a good company. Medium size. Quick promotions if you're willing to learn and put yourself out there. Just hold down a role for a year

    Cons

    Age gap between older and younger
    Little bit of age discrimination in the office if you're younger
    Don't really do anything together
    Seems to lack an identity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider skill set, not age
    Focus on communicating with employees on company changes (crude pricing, lay offs?)
    Couple trouble makers, need removed.

    DCP IS company whose executives are only interested in themselves & the common employees are JUST NUMBERS to them; they have NO REGARD FOR the COMMON EMPLOYEE!

    Pros

    There are NO PROS, get a job at a company that values ALL employees! DCP only values management! They use employees & when they are through with them they throw them out like TRASH! Good example of how they treat the common employee: Management tells you your department is moving to Houston & offer the employees a move then those who take them up on the transfer OFFER they come back & tell them the transfer offer is no longer on the table! Again JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW DCP DOES NOT VALUE THE COMMON EMPLOYEE. The common employee IS TRASH! Use them up & throw them OUT LIKE TRASH!!

    Cons

    You earn vacation so many weeks per years of service; they changed the vacation policy so that your vacation is now allocated to you each month. If you want to take a long vacation at the beginning of the year -- count that out. This New vacation policy is another prime example of DISREGARD FOR THE COMMON EMPLOYEE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the common employee because they ultimately will make or break the company! If DCP doesn't they are DOOMED AS A COMPANY!!! Mark my words!

    Pros

    Good benefits. Company is well situated for success in natural gas Midstream with a lot o processing capacity in Eagleford, Permian, and SE NM.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities to advance unless you are a Good Old Boy. if you want an occasional attaboy for a job well done, don't expect it from DCP. They expect employees to give 110% but do not reward hard work. As a result, turnover is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    show a little appreciation toward individual employees and you might retain more of them.. You will need good employees to succeed.

    there were many potentials for a nice working experience, however, all that falls by the wayside due to favoritism.

    I worked at DCP Midstream LP full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is pretty decent, and they offer more than your average amount of perks to their employees.

    Cons

    excessive hours crossing the line to unsafe, requiring safe work from fatigued workers. failure to maintain company policies on appropriate behavior in the working environment. policies seem to be all lip service. policies to implement proper training are implemented poorly. all these cons contribute and create a stressful working environment leading to hostile co-workers and management having unsafe and unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't bite off more work than you can keep up with reasonably. Bare in the commute between and home when considering increasing hours. The amount of sleep a person needs to work safely isn't a choice (the average is 8 hours) Be consistent with your words. if you say it, mean it. Don't talk out of both sides of your mouth. consider and look into the possibility that if other workers seem to be accomplishing their task in a reasonable time, they may be cutting corners to meet your demand. Others falling short may be perfectly complying to every detail of your list of demands, and falling short because you have given an unreasonable amount of task. That kind of poor management does not create a team of reliable workers.

    Pros

    Great boss and flexible schedule makes the job enjoyable. Because of the business growth strategy of DCP Midstream and the MLP there are never two days the same.

    Cons

    The work life ratio is not good. There is not a large enough staff the comfortably take any time off. The piled up workload upon return can be insurmountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Job retention among newer employees is of serious concern and the older employees are getting worn out. Also the Simply Well program is very annoying.

    Pros

    work with great people. management recognizes success and exceptional performance. leadership is transparent and supportive benefits like vacation policy is great. The company as a whole wants to make it into a good place to work.

    Cons

    salaries could be better and there could be more room for quicker growth in to leadership positions It is a slow paced company, which means that it can require great patience and endurance to wait for improvements to come to fruition.
