I worked at Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Benefits were comparable if not better than most. I enjoyed on how they value safety and make it a priority to establish that culture.

Cons

pay, shift work, lack of direction from middle management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the hiring process a lot quicker. Six months was a little long.

    I worked at Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline full-time

    Pros

    Good co-workers. Decent wages and benefits

    Cons

    The concentration of power is with 5 people company with a president with no backbone. Unless you are one of their favorite people and are willing to be a "yes" person, you will not last long. Promotions and other career opportunities belong to them. Most employees do not trust upper management, but they are afraid to lose their jobs so they do as they are told. You can't trust what management says they will do. They pretend to befriend employee only to try to find out information about other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need a new set of upper management

    I have been working at Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    401K match, benefits, support from immediate supervisor, They seem to have big future goals

    Cons

    I have been with the company for a couple of years now, and i have determined that accounting and lawyers seem to have final say on everything that happens with SSCGP. ESPECIALLY pay. they will nickle and dime you as far as pay and bonuses. There is no written or even understood way to advance, with managers shrugging their shoulders and saying "im not really sure how that works". It isn't their fault, senior management doesn't have anything spelled out. There are no pipeliners running the company, its administrative types which makes the whole process seem like numbers, and the human, or family sense is gone. I have been told over and over my many many other employees who have worked for 10, 20+ years for the company that this is the worst they have ever seen the company run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move from Kentucky to a state where the pipeline exists..... then mabye there wont be such a disconnect and this pipeline can be more successful. It is two different worlds, those in the field and those in the HQ location. Clear up the confusion many have on how to get advanced, or perform many other tasks, there seems to be a lack of direction.
