A decent company to work for but will limit your career.

I have been working at Energy Transfer Partners full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I can honestly say, the overall majority of the people here are very pleasant to work with. They are very professional and very talented individuals. The work environment is laid back and they are very understanding when it comes to life outside of work

Cons

Unless you're in the 'good old boy' network here, your career will never grow. Working here will only get you experience, not growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None to give, they won't listen.

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive. Company growing in size due to constant acquisitions of other competing companies. Schedule is 8-5 for the most part.

    Cons

    Since the acquisition of Southern Union, things have changed for the worse. Company has abandoned ALL core values and have inherited the processes and practices of the acquired company. Company has become a them vs us environment and management has no reasonable plan(s) to fix the issues at hand.

    When i first started with Energy Transfer, it felt more like a family that a job. The acquisition and changes in IT management has made it feel more like you are just working until they are ready to release you from your position, which now apparently can happen for no reason whatsoever.

    Steer clear of this company and what it now claims to offer. New IT management have mastered the art of deception and will lie to your face before turning the table on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at the state of the IT dept instead of depending on the Senior Management to exaggerate a (false) positive outlook.

    I have been working at Energy Transfer Partners full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has been growing steady for years now. The issues that plagued the IT department with low budgets on inferior hardware was being fixed. The IT department was a good place to get your feet wet to learn and grow into a better technician. There were plans to revamp and build IT as an enterprise class department.

    Cons

    IT went through a major restructure in the last integration of the company's it has purchased. With the restructure came new head management people were fired with in hours. IT was splintered between Energy Transfer legacy IT and the acquired company's IT. There is a wall between them that still has no been broken. Being on the legacy end will most likely result in loosing your job and being belittled. The acquired company's IT doesn't understand the infrastructure of what was built and no idea how to use the tools that they have taken control over. This has resulted in the end users having to deal with the pain and suffering of an inadequate IT department. The new management is focused on the idea of best practice to the point that it hinders them useless and system fail while they have meetings talking about the failing system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have lost your core values in the company that was built and profitable. Taken on ALL the aspects of the acquired company is a mistake. Things can be learned from them but the principles of the company should not change. Replacing the people who built the company not just in IT is not the responsible thing to do.
