    I worked at Preston Pipelines full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team environment, upper management provides great mentoring, great salary in a hard economy, has a really great development plan for new employees, hard work pays off. This is definitely the kind of place where if you work hard you get recognized!

    Cons

    It can be hard to get into upper management due to Preston's ability to foster long time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything was really well run and it was so great being a part of the team. The culture here was so energetic and it was inspiring. So much more than what I was expecting

    I worked at Preston Pipelines full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of work if you need to stay busy, management skills can be developed, field personnel are great folks.

    Cons

    Pay was extremely low for industry standard, atrocious hours, constant changes in "team" structures, fraternity-like management style. Technical skills not put to use. Incentives not offered. Out-of-touch leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unwavering chaos is an unmovable barrier to efficiency. While accepting misplaced credit for team successes, acknowledge and take responsibility for your individual shortcomings.

    Pros

    hands on work, some good employees

    Cons

    poor salary, no raises, no promotions, no bonuses, no recognition for work, too long of hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give back to the employees that are breaking their backs for you at 50-60hrs per week. when you break down the salaries based on actual hrs worked, most of the PEs would make more in a restaurant.

    I worked at Preston Pipelines

    Pros

    - They will get the job done the right way
    - High morals and wonderful treatment of employees (both field and office)
    - Everybody accomplishes their own jobs for group success
    - Great pay
    - Prime location (middle of Silicon Valley)

    Cons

    - May be hard to work your way up the ladder if management is full, but this applies anywhere
    - Fast paced, high energy, demanding work environment may not be for some

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys have the right attitude for success. I loved the responsibility i was given early on at the company. In other words, sink or swim.
