    Pros

    A paycheck. thats about it. 20 word minimum huh. Wow. Cronyism to the max. It sums up to, "The smart never come and the dumb never leave".

    Cons

    situations that shouldn't cause stress are manifested into full blown drama. No one is ever promoted unless they are friends of upper management. Attrition is comparable to a fast food joint. If you enjoy working with hillbillies you've come to the right place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what is behind the problem of attrition. Hint: and it's not that the market is hot.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and good pay

    Cons

    Don' waste your time working for Kinder Morgan Goldsmith,Tx. Management is a liar and will deny anything you say when put on the spot. Will not tell you the work schedule till after your hired and quit your other job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be let go and hiring within. Somebody that knows whats going on. Has horrible communication skills and very demanding. Uses his job title as a threat.

    Pros

    Stable place and not stressful

    Cons

    20 years behind in technology and retention policy. Selected individuals participate in compensation packages based on subjective management. Not much concern for the rest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate and motivate performers, get rid of dead weight and include long-term compensation packages to all good employees, not just engineers.

    Pros

    Flexibility to take on new projects. Great culture of teamwork.

    Cons

    Minimal investment in education- tuition reimbursement packages only meet the federal tax free minimum unless your department is willing to sponsor you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you offered more in tuition reimbursement packages, people would gladly sign on for extra years.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck. Huge company has potential for a good working environment (depends on immediate management). Flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    Cheap, cheap, cheap. Some management types are more ridiculous than others, but it's all about the bottom line. Return on investment is unheard of at this place. It's more about how much you can save today, who cares about tomorrow? type attitude. It's like they're running a company with 12 people instead of 12,000 with some of the archaic systems that are in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees with pay increases, better annual bonuses and even spot bonuses. They're the most important asset to the company. I can't see this "let them leave, we'll find someone better" holding up in the long run.
