    I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work life balance, management makes it known they value their employees, excellent long term compensation. The company is committed to creating a responsible, ethical and value-added culture. Senior management is always focused on the long term success of the company which creates noticeable stability in the work environment.

    Cons

    Salary/bonus below market, offset by long term incentives. Advancement can be slow due to long tenures and low turnover but those who earn it are rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Upper management has clear, communicated vision. Co-workers are wonderful. Salary and benefits are great. Bonuses/stock incentive plan are generous especially in certain groups. Half day Fridays at corporate office. Managers at all levels are extremely competent. Upper management has enough risk controls in place to keep it going even in bad times for the industry.

    Cons

    None to speak of really

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating the vision.

    I worked at Plains All American Pipeline as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn a great deal
    Ability to choose your own hours
    No micromanagement
    Wonderful company culture, the employees are like a big family
    The company is expanding very quickly- it has doubled in size just since I interned there!

    Cons

    I can't think of any. Plains treats its employees very well, and management does the same. Many companies would benefit from emulating their 'take care of your employees, and they'll take care of you' philosophy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on growing!

    I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline

    Pros

    I am given the freedom to do my job to the best of my ability, without any micromangement. I feel respected by my VP and other senior leaders with whom I interact. My work is challenging and I am very fairly compensated. Great work atmosphere, everyone gets along well. There are always office politics, but it seems to be kept in check here. Senior execs really seem to care about the employees. Quarterly company meetings keep us informed of what is happening. Pay and benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Seems like a lot of the senior execs have gotten their kids jobs here. Not enough emphasis is placed on employee evaluations, so you have to seek out feedback from your boss.
