    Pros

    Great company, well established within Industry, Great employee incentives, great benefits

    Cons

    Well dont know about the company as a whole but my dept is full of older employees who rather do the work than allow someone younger than them to do it, Information is not shared properly to complete work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure Supervisors are people who are willing to help out their team and understand we all learn and think differently

    Great operators working the equipment. The guys are outstanding. Great systems in place to create a safe atmosphere. Benefits are amazing really takes care of there employees.

    Cons

    A lot of office drama especially with the supervisors and above. A lot of bad attitudes from the times prior to kinder Morgan. That ale it difficult to implement a safe atmosphere. The guys that have been there awhile try to bully others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp everything put people in place that support the guys. Plus can make things happen.

    Pros

    The opportunities can be quite attractive, but putting in your time so to speak can become frustrating depending on the level of neglect your facility may have suffered under previous management over the years.

    Cons

    Terminals division has been somewhat neglected over the years. EHS, operations all have a lot of catching up to do to meet current standards so it will take some time to see the fruits of your labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep putting pressure on terminals without resourcing them properly and you could find yourself with a flight of qualified and competent people.

    Pros

    This a focused company with very defined goals and a consistent record of achieving these goals. These targets are both financial and performance oriented, and they are made public. These goals are the standard by which performance is measured, and all are consistently held to the standard. This works because there is no question about what the performance objectives are who did or did not achieve them.

    Cons

    The focus seems to be too short term. Efficiency and capacity suffer because of short term goals. Long term vision is not communicated well to lower levels. Likewise, the ideas and suggestions of employees are nor communicated up through levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Field presence by members of management is critical in this environment. Employees need to know that the focus is on the people and their facility.

    Pros

    If your right out of college. You will learn allot, because KM dosen't believe in spending for consultants.

    Cons

    No Support, Senior Management will close minded. Technical support is limited do to in experience. Many people have an additude of cut throat philosophy. Hi turn over in the Terminals, more than any other company I have worked with. As a Senior Project Manager, this has been very frustrating to say the least. Our group has gone through 3 mangers in less than 16 month. Not to mention support personnel. Pay is horrible! KM top exec only make $210,000. So a engineer with 10 yr's experince makes in the 50 - 60 range. Hourly personnel make an average of $11 -$14 in average with no pay raises passed 4% a year. Bonus are less than 5% yearly regardless of effort and results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your way of management. Start to pay your people fairly. Pay attention to the KMT group. Just becasue we are not at Houston (HQ) or Lakewood (tech groups), we should be treated like we don't exist. Look at your turn over rate in boss management, tech maanagement and support personnel and you'll see that people are very angry and always looking to get out. Help us please, spend time here and not just send your VP's who keep promising and promising but will not delive. We need better working conditions, support (technical and admin), better compensation, more involement with KM HQ, Just get off your throne and come down here and spend time.
