    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.

    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

    Industry-competitive pay
    Very little routine tasks or monotony
    Employees are recognized for their work; credit is given when and where it's due

    Personnel training is mostly handled by EHS; training department doesn't actually train
    EHS is a lean department, sometimes work load is heavy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between EHS and Ops directors
    Training should be handled by training department

    Spend more time in the field to better understand the day to day operations and be able to communicate goals in a more practical manner
