I have been working at MarkWest Energy Partners as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

This is one of the most relaxed, open work environments ever. I am never afraid to ask a question, and since I started everyone has been extremely helpful. Working from home occasionally is an option, which is fantastic. I actually enjoy going to work every day!

Cons

The training is non-existent. It's one of those "throw you in the pool to teach you how to swim" kind of places. The only training you really get is training on the company policies, not on your actual job duties. Many of the employees are new and so everyone is still learning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set up a real training program.

    I have been working at MarkWest Energy Partners full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Employees and contractors accomplish a lot considering the lack of adequate staffing and support. Perennial winner of industry customer service awards. Casual, flexible work environment. Lots of opportunity to take initiative and grow professionally. Good salary & benefits. Generally friendly, hard-working, competent co-workers.

    Cons

    Fundamental problems are often unseen (or ignored) by management due to ground-level employees & contractors absorbing the extra workload. Management would rather run lean and let the lower-ranking people pick up the slack. This can infringe on work-life balance and lead to a frustrating environment that seems as if management does not care about the common employee (or, even worse, contractor). Poor communication & formal training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not ignore the needs for the areas of the company that are stretched too thin.
