I worked at BreitBurn (More than 3 years)
Overall great atmosphere, people to work for and with. Really nice upside in training and development of its employees. Great benefits and nice perks. One of the best groups of people I have worked for and with. ,
Not really a 'Con' but it would have been nice if leadership could have given employees that were laid off either a chance at sticking around at reduced salary or have the option of going to another department. Since hiring a CIO, the morale of the IT dept. went from confident and eager to worried and anxious about their longevity with the direction with company. Understand cutbacks are part of the business so... still sucks.
Advice to Management
Overall great job really, just that it would have been nice to perhaps make a plan in order to keep some key figures in the IT department around to at least some capacity to still help the business that still needed to be maintained even after many layoffs. Outsourcing money could have went to employees that would have care much more for the people and the parts than any 3rd party IMO..
