    Pros

    Salary, benefits and bonus structure, 9-80 schedule, interesting and at times fascinating work environment, talented and motivated co-workers (about ten percent)

    Cons

    Management is totally top-down and myopic. There are very few training opportunities. There is not a "team" mentality, one group gets pitted against another. Communication between groups within my business unit is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    It would be pointless to offer advice to this group because they already know everything, even though they've never really done much.

    Pros

    Pay, time off, benefits, Kinder Morgan is a good company with good growth in the energy industry.

    Cons

    Pay lower than industry, promotions are slow. Some departments are stuck in outdated ideas and processes. The company could use some youth and innovation.

    Pros

    Kinder Morgan has great benefits and excellent exposure to other areas of the business. It is a fast paced and growing company.

    Cons

    Kinder Morgan could improve its career development and placement tracks. To move up, you need to be more proactive and look for jobs on your own.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to continue to develop employees and place them on advanced career paths. Having more available tuition reimbursement options would be a great benefit.

    Pros

    It was a paycheck and gave me a place to work while I was searching for better employment.

    Cons

    The terminal is so out dated it not funny. They loved to hire there friends uneducated kids. They preach safety, but will target you if you have valid concerns. You are always exposed to the weather.

    Advice to Management

    Start all over again before someone gets hurt.

    Pros

    Great exposure to the industry.

    Cons

    Heavy workload compared to partners we collaborate with daily (other controllers at other facilities). Average pay compared to ship channel with significantly heavier workload. Management doesn't look out for advancing our careers. They just want to keep the consoles staffed and not have to hire anyone for 30 years. Expressing any advancement is shot down very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    The job is understood to be stressful, don't make it worse by being rude, disrespectful and unprofessional to your employees. This happens daily which explains turnover.
