    Pros

    Pay, benefits, people I worked with, senior management, work life balance. CEO often said take care of the employees and they will take care of the company.

    Cons

    Merger with El Paso Pipelines lead to large layoffs in 2012. Some middle managers don't follow through on the values expressed by senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure middle management supporting the values you have expressed.

    Former Employee - Project Controls Supervisor in Houston, TX

    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional work environment, great people to work with and for, mostly everyone wants to move the company forward/in a positive direction, paid parking/metro (huge plus), supportive staff. Overall I enjoyed most of my team and I miss them. My team rocked I wish them all the best!

    Management's ability to not select certain employees who are disgruntled because she/they didn't get the job she/they applied for. Management's ability to not select certain employee's who lack real project controls skills. Management's ability to select employees who think reasonably. Management's ability to choose leaders who are experienced, diverse and able to lead and mentor employees. Overall I had no problem with my team, peers and my management. The management had sound judgement.

    Cons

    Growing pains (still recovering from El Paso Merger), a lot of great ideas, but need one solid voice to take the great ideas and communicate one clear message. More defined processes and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not so much advice to management, but advise to the person who posed as me. Please get a life and do more constructive things with your time other than trying to slander the company's reputation and my own reputation.

    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.
