Pros

Reasonable Compensation is the one pro

Cons

Just about every other aspect of the company/emploee relationship is a Con

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are a big company now, with big company liabilities. Act like it. Reward your employees based on merit and KSAs, and not how far their nose is up their bosses backside.

    I have been working at Energy Transfer Partners full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is a dynamic and high growth firm who has been both good and lucky in their growth. With their last two acquisitions, they are one of the largest two players in their industry

    Cons

    This growth comes on the backs of the rank and file employees. The company has grown so fast that processes and 'procedures' are often made up as they go. They are proud of the fact that they were a company of less than 500 employees five years ago, but with over 15k today, they need to develop programs to remain fair and consistent on a day to day basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back up and look at your the HR and other programs of the companies you acquired. While they may cast you a couple mils on the bottom line, your +10% turnover rate will fall as employees start to trust that you will be fair across off companies and employees.

    I worked at Energy Transfer Partners as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Travel and team members are good.

    Cons

    Management. The IT management has no real management style, other than Do as I say, not as I do. The procedures are ALL specific to single incidents. No global procedures. And they are terrible micro managers. If you dont like micro management, then DO NOT work in the IT dept at ETC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put some faith in your employees. In the Houston office, there are several good employees, but the manager there practices micro management, and they have to do everything with his review and permission.
