    I worked at Buckeye Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Their Stance on Safety is truest a culture.
    This is truly a Great company to work for they have a real open door policy.
    The company has a very lean structure which makes it a very efficient business model

    Cons

    Like every other companies they have a few managers that have no business being in a position over people.
     Their is not a lot of room for employees to move up in the company because of such a lean company structure.

    Advice to Management

    There is a real need to visit every location and talk to employees without manager included

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, camaraderie between co-workers. Overall, most employees and management were great to work with.

    Cons

    Unprofessional and unorganized Office Manager in the corporate office. She is horribly rude, inconsistent, dishonest and toxic. Treats her employees and outside vendors like dirt. It's truly disappointing that a great company has allowed her to create such a hostile work environment.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits....but that is it.

    Cons

    If you enjoy being bullied and screamed at. If you like watching your ideas constantly shot down. If you like your manager throwing things at you and kicking walls and throwing temper tantrums then South Portland Maine Terminal is the place for you. Oh and dont waist your time with their HR department, they only cover up their hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    You will never stop bleeding employees until you fire your management here. Remember people do not leave companies, they leave terrible managers.

    I have been working at Buckeye Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good base pay, ok benefits that have dwindled, occasional travel opportunities, really good employees who try to create better morale for themselves where managers won't or can't

    Cons

    Departments have wildly differing management styles, zero chance to move up unless someone up above likes you. Hard work is seldom if ever rewarded. It pays to do the minimum possible to stay out of trouble rather than be your best. Long hours with no extra pay. Lots of 24:7 on call.

    Advice to Management

    No one will listen or care...so why bother

    I have been working at Buckeye Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good intended efforts, mediocre execution.

    Cons

    Opportunities for challenging and enriching experiences are very limited. There is no structured effort and approach to employee development. Some in leadership positions view length in position as a critical factor for upward movement or even involvement in challenging projects. The organization does not truly value pay for performance. Leadership claims that there is a pay-for-performance culture but the reality is that there is little compensatory differentiation between varying levels of performance. Mediocre performance and results are not only tolerated here but even celebrated on occasion. Significant lack of innovative ideas and very reluctant to change. Leadership seems to be of the belief that there is no need to change since there is currently marked success versus truly valuing continuous improvement, scalability and positioning the organization well for future growth. I have only remained here because the market softened due to the industry circumstances. This is the least rewarding and gratifying work experience I have ever had.

    I have been working at Buckeye Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible office environment where you can work from home, no punching clock and concentration is on your ability to finish your tasks in time, not how you finish them.

    Cons

    No path to career growth. Few manager posts and to advance you have to be one.

    Advice to Management

    Create a way in which you can rise without necessarily having to be a manager. Things like subject matter expert should be considered.

    I worked at Buckeye Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay but the money if not worth the long hours and rude management you must deal with everyday.

    Cons

    Long hours with little to no recognition. On call 24 hours a day and 7 days. Expect to be called out on holidays and nights. It was nothing to work 21-22 days in a row. They say you are not to work more than 12 hours a day. When you work a 16hr day, they'll tell you to put the 4 hours on the following day, so it doesn't look like you worked more than 12. I accepted a new position and was not given the appropriate pay until a year later. Two months after I started working for Buckeye, I fell in a hole at work and was told not to go to the doctor because it would count against our safety record. Stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better mentoring program. Employee moral is extremely low, so do something about it.
