    I worked at Kinder Morgan

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not enough structure to consider it a thorough program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    One main plus, is they demonstrated a genuine concern for safe work practices as well as production.

    Cons

    The Co., had to meet the demands of the economy, so the employees had to make adjustments sometimes before they were ready.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate everything allowed, to everyone, on every level, as often as possible.

    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.
