    I worked at SemGroup as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great, the leadership has changed over the past few years and provides positive growth with a high emphasis on strong culture.

    Cons

    High dependence on the commodity prices of oil and gas

    I have been working at SemGroup full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits; paid holidays; 401k with company match; decent pay

    Cons

    Paid by the number of barrels/miles hauled. A LOT of short runs. Management has it's favorites (just like any other company). Too many vehicles needing repair. Stay away from south Texas, especially Pearsall location. Slip seat operations at some yards. Do your research before deciding which yard to run out of.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of the maintenance of the trucks available to the drivers. Have REAL mechanics and NOT third party vendors fixing the trucks.


  3. A great, rebounding company with friendly, dedicated employees.

    I worked at SemGroup part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's not a lot of office drama here in my experience. Everyone is generally friendly and willing to assist quickly with any data requests, etc. The C-suite folks are generally very approachable, and it's not unusual for either the CEO or CFO to make the rounds of the Tulsa office every couple of weeks and spend a minute or two talking to each person. SemGroup's also very involved in volunteering and fundraising for causes for a company of its size. Great safety-first mentality.

    Cons

    There's not necessarily a lot of opportunity for movement within the company, whether laterally or vertically.

    I worked at SemGroup full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for SemGroup for 10 years. Yes, we had some rough times especially through bankruptcy but I feel they are a wonderful company to work for.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always realize the amount of work with the limited staff.

    Pros

    I had the best managers at SemGroup. They really cared about all of the people on our team. My managers were open to suggestions and listened to what we thought would improve our position in the industry. I also liked that I had a mentor to guide me through learning the industry. We also had a great environment to work in. We had exercise facilities, food, and up-to-date technology. They also provided great on the job training. I was flown to many places to recieve training on the software and to meet others throughout the country that held my same position.

    Cons

    I really did not have any dislikes about working at SemGroup until they filed Chapter 11. After that, everything changed for the worse. The management was gone and replaced by bankers. I am now left without a job after a reduction in workforce. Before I was let go though, it seemed that there were not open lines of communication with upper management and the regular employee. My immediate manager was still great in trying to explain things as they came, but even he did not know what was going to happen next. I think that it was a great company that had hard circumstances. Too bad.

    Advice to Management

    What happened to lead to the Chapter 11 is a sad situation. A great, innovative company was ruined by only a few.


  8. Once a great Company to work for.

    Pros

    Before the chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization it was a good company.

    Cons

    Now just a revolving door for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Quit before you drive them out of business
