    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Kinder Morgan is still in CO2 exploration, production and transportation. Since acquiring El Paso, it is a great company in energy pipeline business with operational excellence. Upper management can make fast decisions. Middle management are willing to apply technologies.

    Cons

    Due to CEO Rich Kinder is an executive with extensive pipeline experiences, the company's focus is in pipeline. Even with KM's excellent position in the CO2 business, their value added investment in oil and gas exploration and production properties is lagging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Selection of first level manager is critical to the screening of realistic and doable technologies and projects.

    Current Employee - Entry Level Terminal Operator in Galena Park, TX

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Have not found one yet.

    Cons

    Labor intensive job. Very little down time. Work hard for 90 percent of the time. Equipment is in poor dirty conditions. Go overboard on some safety items but over look some of the simple stuff. Have to ask for PPE (safety equipment)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come spend a day in our shoes and see it you could do half the work you are asking for in a safe and timely manner.

    Pros

    Super people working in a safe, professional environment.

    Cons

    Fanatic attention to the shortest-term bottom-line, at the cost of the long-term viability of facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nearly impossible to turn management to take the long-view, given the nature of a Limited Partnership.

    Overworked valueless tasks in a Pressure cooker environment

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There's a few good people left..................

    Cons

    Pressed and stressed for zero value demands from power struggle management. Chasing down the right solution has been replaced by the blame game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete restructuring is needed before all talented employees are lost. Restore the trust.
