  1. "Limited Opportunity to Grow"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Convenient location with nice offices

    Cons

    Small company with limited opportunity for growth. Not a very diverse environment- very conservative and old-school. Not open to the 9-80 schedule

    Advice to Management

    Show that you value your top performers and keep them motivated.

    Pros

    Beautiful Houston offices with new technology, exciting work, pleasant co-workers, bright future for the company; opportunity to make real change; increasing leadership focus on defining and communicating direction; new "Flexible Friday" work-life balance option; technical ability to telecommute.

    Cons

    Acquisitions and leadership changes have resulted in inconsistent management approach. Greenway location is not very convenient for mass transit; no option for 9-80 work-life balance option.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a consistent and complementary leadership philosophy; corporate directions and message should not be different and incompatible across the organization as this causes confusion. Leadership has done more in the past year to express vision (very positive change - keep going).

    I worked at Boardwalk Pipeline full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent pay if you get recognized for Admin promotions, but not many other opportunities for career growth.

    Cons

    Longstanding communications & issues between departments, management and coworkers make admin job (time management & day-to-day tasks) very difficult to complete - late/delayed information, lack of / incomplete information, different answers from different sources and hard to get a response or pin anyone down for an answer. They expect the output but are very lapse at providing the info or tools you need to complete the work effectively and efficiently, then want you to go back and change things up after all the work has been put into it, so often reworking reports, etc. when a few minutes of communication & specific/detailed planning (w/admin)beforehand would avoid so much confusion and wasted time, but could rarely get their attention for 2 or 3 min. because they were always busy or in meetings, etc. which were priorities to them but would not take time to pass on to admins until after the fact when reports were coming due and there were still outstanding issues / unanswered questions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider all admin part of your team and be more inclusive of info that increases their knowledge and awareness of details that may be pertinent to their work.

    I worked at Boardwalk Pipeline full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice location and the majority of personnel have integrity and values

    Cons

    VP of XXX is a bully and a bigot.

    Never, ever use the "anonymous ethics hotline". I saw what happened to one individual that reported an ethics complaint, as instructed by the company top management. HR named names on the one who made the complaint. A few weeks later this person was fired.

    I asked this person why there was no desire for a retaliation termination suite against Boardwalk. The answer, "an "in-power" bigot and bully does not DEFINE the entire company"

    Pros

    There is room for advancement.
    Managers are excellent to work for and are understanding and respectful.

    Cons

    Advancement opps come from the gap in the work force age and often come with little or no training of the new job.
    Trouble hiring and keeping new field personel.
    Pay policy for field personel that openly states the wage cap for a position is the average wage of similar companies survied.
    No performance or safety bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and communicate better. A bit of focus on employee moral will go a long.
    Get past the practice of low wages. You cant hire good candidates, you cant keep good candidates, and lately appears your solution is to avoid hiring qualified people because you know they wont stay.

    Pros

    I am given quite a bit of autonomy to bring in new technologies and design ideas for our network. The people I work with are some of the best in the business, good friends and good professionals. Boardwalk is a fun and interesting place to work. We celebrate success with end of project parties and holiday get-togethers. Senior management has been increasingly supportive of IT as we continue to deliver dependable and innovative solutions to the business.

    Cons

    Compensation is not up to par. I had not seen a pay increase in almost 3 years. There is the occasional spot bonus but those are few and far between and not much to write home about, especially after taxes.

    Advice to Management

    IT keeps your business alive. Make sure you take care of those who keep the lights on for you. We're making more money than we ever have in the energy sector. Time for those monster profits to trickle down to the little people.

    Pros

    Boardwalk Pipeline has a great working environment and the culture is fitting for my needs. The Management Team endorses a work life balance and they have a "flex day" program in place.

    Cons

    With the exception of being a new and fairly small company, there are not many cons. As with most small companies, the medical insurance is a little pricey and the non exempt staff are not eligible for an annual bonus.

    Advice to Management

    More team building and employee recognition programs are needed to build employee moral. Moving to a 9/80 schedule would also boost moral, cut back and PTO leaves, and offter your employees flexibilty as for as "work life balance".
