    I have been working at Energy Transfer Partners full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It is a fast paced company and growing very fast

    Cons

    It is growing so fast, it is challenging for the internal groups to keep up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees like to know where they are going as an organization. They feel more part of the team if they are well informed.

    This company has grown tremendously but has not built the foundation to absorp that growth.

    I have been working at Energy Transfer Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay, laid back atmosphere and good benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism, no communication from managers or intradepartments, people without degrees and accounting degrees performing jobs they don't grasp, no corporate culture of valuing the employees as an asset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above. Need to take a tremendous amount of leadership seminars.

    I have been working at Energy Transfer Partners as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    A rapidly growing company with large projects and a healthy array of opportunities.

    I worked with an extremely knowledgeable and helpful team. I would do anything to work in a positive, rewarding environment like that again.

    Great engineering talent. My mentor and supervisors were extremely flexible, helpful and provided all the tools needed to get my job done.

    I came in contact with a large amount of employees during my time at Energy Transfer and noticed a general trend. Employees here are willing to share information and give guidance on projects.

    I was given the opportunity to attend seminars, lunch and learns, vendor training sessions, industry panels and networking opportunities. I met great people here and would definitely recommend this as a top place to work in Houston.

    Downtown location is great.

    Salary and Benefits are very competitive.

    Cons

    As with any large corporation there are challenges with working at ETC, but as far as I could tell the pros heavily outweigh the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bulk of your work comes from a handful of hard working individuals, recognize them, give them feedback, it does wonders for people.

    Practice open communication with your employees, it is key for employee morale.

    Pros

    The employees of ETC are wonderful people with great skills and a can-do attitude.

    Cons

    Employees made this company what it is today but are now tossed aside like yesterday's trash. Your IT and HR departments have fallen apart and now it appears that their job is to eat employees' souls for lunch. Try getting necessary staff positions filled, or give an employee a promotion. Its easier to thread a camel thru the eye of a needle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember, you can have all the meetings you want but its the employees who get the work done. Reward them for their dedication, service, loyalty, long hours, travel, and time way from family. Fix what's broken and get back to being a place the employees want to be because they feel valued (instead of expendable).

    Current Employee - IT Department in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Energy Transfer Partners full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is good, there are some good people at the company as well. I do not think Energy Transfer is a bad company. However, the key is leadership that you have in your particular department and if management is not the best it brings the work environment down.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, and new processes from merger has brought morale down. There is a charge to park in garage for new building downtown however park and ride participants get to ride the bus for free.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees more.

    I worked at Energy Transfer Partners full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was a comfortable environment, Even though I was a contract employee I was treated as a permanent employee, also it was positive working environment.

    Cons

    I actually didn't have any bad times with Energy Transfer, they treated with nothing but kindness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice that was given was my help with them transition from JD Edwards to SAP due to me having over 10yrs experience with SAP.
