    Pros

    Exposure to several facets of the midstream energy industry, great vision at the corporate level, lots of opportunities, decent salaries, easy to rise above the rest.

    Cons

    Bottom line: The C.O.O. needs to be replaced and the leadership needs to tell the employees the truth: come to work on time, do your job, don't get hurt, and we'll pay you. Don't make promises you can't keep or intend to keep for that matter.
    The organization is extremely silo'd and everyone has their own kingdoms. I'm surprised the company is as profitable as it is with all the in-fighting that occurs on a regular basis.
    The talent pool is horrendous and nobody wants to hold anyone accountable for their actions consistently.

    Advice to Management

    Make the right changes in upper management if you want to keep any talent around in the company.
    Modify or get rid of the SQE program and make it applicable to how we're truly going to operate.
    Maintain the flexibility and responsiveness that our business was known for.

    Pros

    A lot of exposure to daily operations, incidents, meetings, customers, etc.

    Cons

    Not enough structure to consider it a thorough program.

    Advice to Management

    It was a very beneficial experience but could benefit from more structure or have an assignment to turn in or present at the end.
