    I have been working at El Paso

    Pros

    Location...Houston, and majors cities in the US, as well as district and area offices along the various pipeline locations. Good industry reputation with other companies. Professes to be good stewards of properties and good neighbors within the various communities. Excellent knowledge base in senior employees. Excellent industry to be at this time...natural gas for energy when the world is concerned about clean air and global climate change.

    Cons

    Senior and upper management not visible enough to the rank and file. Exposure is prepared video clips and press releases. General fear by management of controversy from addressing groups. Layoffs and cutbacks in the name of efficiency every five six years. Unable to attract and groom the best prospects for performance and career training. Lack of encouragement to have employees show initiative.
    High debt impacting cash flow and stock prices for a very viable and stable industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute better fiscal policies and controls. Relax minor impact policies and promote the initiative of employees at all levels. Do not cottle, but firmly and fairly evaluate all employees on a quarterly basis, and not on a annual basis. Those employees that do not and can not show initiative must be told of their limitations and that continued employment will depend on their visibility and initiative.

    Pros

    A good corporation with decent benefits and pay incentives. Mid level mangement seems to be fair and knowlegible about their postion and the job they are doing. The annual incentives seem to keep up with the cost of living.

    Cons

    They are so big they do a lot of internal policies much like the U.S. Goverment. Their PMP program which is your annual raise and bonus could use a lot of work. I also believe they rely on contractors far too much. They need to approve more jobs and hire more people in key positions throughout the company.Contractors serve a purpose but you can't use them for every need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the red tape and make it easier for the employee

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, although benefit costs were being pushed more to employees every year. Culture was improving every year and strong push in process improvement and technology.

    Cons

    To much bureaucracy and ultimelty too much overhead. Some group work alot and others are way overstaffed. There was alot of shared service costs relatively to operations.

    The people and work-life balance.

    Some of the processes in place prohibit innovation and execution in your job function. Some managers have the attitude that they don't have to practice what they preach.
