    Pros

    Corporate is in Calgary. Many good people trying to improve infrastructure and assist employees in the field.

    Cons

    Worked in the LPG division in Schaefferstown, PA. District office was located there. Poor leadership at the District Office. All employees are unqualified for there positions and add no value to personnel in the field. More important to hire unqualified friends with the same religious background than to hire qualified employees. Shallow, petty, and vindictive leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Make a leadership change at the Schaefferstown District Office. Senior management needs to realize they are getting very little value from this group.

    Pros

    Freedom to change things and make them better. All ideas were on the table and never turned down without looking into them.

    Cons

    Some of the corporate policies were flawed. As with any large company, the personal touches were missing and you turned into a number and not a name.

    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 Management

    Keep up the good work.


  9. Impossible to move up. Just make sure you hire at the job and pay you want for a long time.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, lenient vacation scheduling and time off.

    Cons

    Compensation is lacking for the amount of work. They will change your job and not your title to keep you at the same pay and continue to add work until you get burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    Could start with having job classes and a pay scale. Perhaps give employees a title that suits their current job instead of just a generic title so they don’t receive compensation for what they do.

    Pros

    Pay is ok, get to work inside away from the elements , some what of a relaxed environment but even that is beginning to change.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The pay is not up to industry standards even though management wants you to feel like you should be grateful you even get a paycheck. The competition has a way better benefits package with some still offering pensions. Other companies have their control center located closer to a bigger city with more things to do whereas the Plains control center is located in Midland Texas. Nothing to do, and one of the most expensive places to live with subpar pay!!!

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the pay to compete with the competition!!! Increase benefits to compete with the competition! !!! Remember that the Permian Basin is one of the highest cost of living areas in Texas. Why stay in Midland with nothing to do, get less pay with less benefits in a high cost of living town when a person go go to Dallas, San Antonio, or Houston and get better pay, better benefits and all with a lower cost of living. Think people think! !
