I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline full-time
Company has great benefits. I enjoy working in my area. Management does a great job.
Co-workers can be toxic sometimes. A lot of older employees will retire at the same time. Pay scale seems to be lower that other oil/gas pipeline companies.
Advice to Management
Get accurate pay data from other employers and adjust accordingly. Only allow the :buddy" system to hire for entry level positions.
I applied online. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline.
Interviewed with the PMO Director. She was totally clueless about running a PMO. All she talked about was how you have to allow a VP to hijack meetings and that the culture there is different from most places. I asked about processes and she redirected the conversation to how the VP takes over meetings and diverts the project managers away from the meeting focus. I asked her about the portfolio of projects and all she said was that they don't do infrastructure related projects.This job has been open for a long time and they keep posting it online. It makes me wonder if it is a real job because with the number of qualified people available in Houston and they are not able to fill the position. Makes me think she wants someone who isn't a threat to her job. I do not recommend wasting time with this company.
