    Pros

    The office is in a good location away from the city and traffic. Benefits are decent. Definitely a great place to start off your career, learn and grow as a professional.

    Cons

    But beginning of a profession is where one caps. Systems, policies and procedures are archaic at best. No real training, just thrown into the fire and hope you return. Every department is waiting on another department and work bottlenecks at crucial times. Overworked, underpaid is a norm but no one seems to understand why and the cycle starts over the following month. Management is extremely inefficient and do not seem to come up to solutions but just patch things up just enough so the department won't collapse. Seems as the company doesn't invest in it's infrastructure.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together and look at what's happening. This company could be great but it seems that mediocre is satisfactory.

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with, most who are willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    Management seems to have their "favorites' picked out and those tend to get promoted. Overworked and underpaid compared to the Market.

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a fair chance.

    Pros

    Positions are more generalists than specialists which affords you broad exposure to many disciplines outside of your own, which makes you very attractive to competitors.

    Cons

    A healthy work/life balance is difficult to achieve for most professional/management positions if you're a conscientious worker.

    Pros

    Friendly place, small enough to make a good employee to stand up fairly easy.

    Cons

    Base salaries lower than competitors. No training. Education reimbursement a joke, only for cheap community college courses. Middle management does not exist at the Sugar land office, upper management in PA decides every single thing. Office is run by an admon, who makes all the important decisions for the entire place.

    Advice to Management

    None. Company is doing great, employees can always be replaced.

    Pros

    Right size not too big not too small. For engineers, there are chances to work on a multitude of projects and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Salaries are way below the market. Leadership believes that with annual bonuses and unit sharing programs people will be happy, but when everything is added up the totals are still lowerrrrrr than the competitors. Formal training is not an option as well as career growth for engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Improve profit sharing program and avoid the high turnover rates.

    Pros

    Since it's a smaller company, it serves as a good first job that allows you to wear multiple hats and gain a lot of experience under your belt with good compensation.

    Cons

    Smaller company with some outdated practices

    Pros

    Steady work. The place will be open tomorrow. Good place to start out especially for veterans.

    Cons

    Rather sloppy training. High stress. Low morale. Unhealthy work environment - some very attitudes among co-workers. Sale to ETP has reduced benefits.

    Advice to Management

    More planning needed with some day-to-day operations. Sloppy planning more often than not.

    Pros

    SXL was a growth company, so you were always active and busy with new projects. They manage well and have a good structure. Good dedication to integrity and incident free operation. Continues to produce results and make money.

    Cons

    Lean operations often puts a lot of stress on employees. Much of the field staff is over worked and under supported. Long hours often go unrewarded, especially for salaried staff. Limited locations.

    Pros

    The company continues to grow and have achieved or surpassed their financial targets. High performers have the opportunity to receive stock plans.

    Cons

    - bought out by Energy Transfer Partners and the company has gone through job eliminations especially on the support roles (finance, HR, etc) - due to the buyout, Sunoco Logistics eliminated some of their modern benefits such as recognizing domestic/same-sex partners as part of the employees eligibility. - again, due to the buyout, ETP has had a lot of influence on how things are run and how things are communicated. With ETP being a public company, I was shocked to see a holiday email from the ETP CEO to all employees including SXL where the CEO explicitly referenced the holiday as "CHRISTmas" several times in that exact format with a high level of religious tones throughout. - a lot of political red tape. People are more concerned about ones job title rather than their actual names. A lot of the more tenured employees there are almost mind-warped to where they are told what to do, and they do it without questioning.

    Advice to Management

    Less about religion and more about equality. This also includes same sex benefits. If you plan on staying relevant in 2013 and beyond, your policies, management style and overall branding of your company towards your current employees and potential candidates need to reflect that of today and not move backwards. The culture and values of SXL prior to being acquired by ETP was not that strong to begin and now with ETP in the picture, SXL's culture and values have more or less vaporized. Use the leverage SXL and take more control.
