I worked at Plains All American Pipeline

Pros

6% 401k match and good health insurance. Plains commercial group is one of the best around. Operations personel are outstanding professionals.

Cons

Marketing Department has much better compensation and bonus structure than the rest of the company. This happens to be the reason that 6 out of 13 VP's have managed to get their children positions in the marketing/trading department creating issues in itself. Management is saturated with OU and TX A&M grads. When tenured professionals submit thier 2 weeks notice, they are sent home on the spot. Total compensation packages are on the low end of the industry average.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on what worked when the company was small.

    I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline

    Pros

    If you are not concerned with career opprtinites and money is the only thing that matters to you then Plains is the place for you. Plains purchased our comapny and quickly threw money at us to move to Texas. There were many openings were some of us could have filled and stayed in California. Instead they hired people from the outside filling those vacancies clearly knownig that 95% of us did not want to leave. Many good people left and others went to Texas with the intention to come back. When Plains would find out you were trying to come back they would throw more money at you. When you rip families apart money is not the answer.

    Cons

    bad management and no career opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at talent first before looking at frindships

    No opinion of CEO
