Pros

Lots of responsibility given to young employees especially in the engineering sector. New Engineers/Business hires with small amounts of experience enter a one year training program where you rotate through each major division. Crosstex is fast growing with lots of opportunities for promotion. Young engineers manage large projects that are not available to work on at other companies. The work environment is very young; most first level manager's are around thirty years old. Lots of opportunities to prove what you can do. I would highly recommend Crosstex versus major Oil companies in terms of learning and responsibility. Crosstex does not have large bureaucracies the majors do and you can move as fast as you want to work for it.

Cons

Compensation runs around industry average. Not very much emphasis on structured re-training (MBA/Masters/PhD) although there are some exceptions.

Advice to Management

Senior managers spend a lot of time with all employees. Improve by allowing more performance based bonuses and/or pay and offering more compensation for training.

    I worked at Crosstex Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn the industry very quickly.

    Cons

    The company is not very organized. They made a major acquisition in Ohio and it's still a mess after 1 1/2 years. This has to do alot with the system consultants that were hired. Also, not much focus has been placed on the producers that helped build the Ohio operations.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the Ohio/KY/WV producers.....they're who helped get the Ohio operations to where they're at today.
