I have been working at Kinder Morgan

Pros

-Stable
-Benefits on par with anywhere else
-Once hired, it is borderline impossible to lose a job in KM

That's about it.

Cons

-Promotions are scheduled 10 years in advance. If you see a new job on the job board, chances are somebody is already picked, HR is just going through legal motions
-A LOT of not very bright people in management just because they stuck around from the beginning and were moved up because somebody else left. Pretty much the only way to move up and is to stick around long enough until somebody leaves/dies.
-The "we don't need a Cadillac if a Chevy would do" mentality leads to people shooting for the Yugo level of performance
-Micromanagement is insane
-Young motivated ambitious people leave left and right because of the "yes" man culture

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the inventory of your employees. By paying people below the industry average, you hire 3 people to do something that one person with proper skills can do.

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Close to home
    You get an hour for lunch so at least you can get some of your senses back to last the rest of the day!

    Cons

    If not a favorite or "yes" man , no promotion opportunities
    You are micro-managed like a kindergardener.
    Everyone including managers and up want to know all the dirt and scoop on everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe you should open your eyes and see what is going on in some of your terminals. It is not all roses like everyone thinks it is.
