    I have been working at El Paso

    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

    I worked at El Paso

    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.

    Pros

    Great place to work - good leadership, supportive culture, work/life balance, good opportunities

    Cons

    Leadership strategy to spin off the E&P business made the Pipeline business even more attractive to KMI for a hostile takeover

    Pros

    The people and work-life balance.

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at El Paso

    Pros

    Employee centered workforce
    "Old scool" type benefits and HR policies that are leaving the workplace (unfortunately)
    Highly skilled and talented workforce
    Good work-life balance
    Great opportunities

    Cons

    Previous mergers have left some past employees with a poor attitude (although rare)
    top level down communication is sometimes lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit more transparency. A bit more visibility from upper management would be nice to help the troops in the field feel as important as we are.
