    Pros

    Given a lot of responsibility - no lack of things to do - able to fail - business conducted stable locations

    Cons

    Advancement - no accountability - few if any rewards for working hard - layoffs 2 times in last 3 years - managers over managers over managers but few worker bees - do not execute quickly - do not make easy things easy.

    Advice to Management

    fire the bad and elevate the good - stop allowing status quo to be norm - praise excellence that is actually excellent not just what sounds like it was hard to do or took long hours.

    Pros

    They have hired a lot of great people who really care about what they are doing in the past few years. There are people here who are very enjoyable to work alongside.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover for all positions. They just can't seem to keep employees long term, even though they are the largest midstream company in the US.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be something done to give employees an incentive to stay with the company. It seems like as soon as someone gets settled in and things are looking up, they leave to another company.

    I worked at DCP Midstream LP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, Good benefits, 4 weeks vacation

    Cons

    At the end of the day its all about the share holders. They talk a big talk about being a big family and being one another keepers, but you have to drink the coolaide and preach the rhetoric. For the last few years we have had two big all employee meetings around the beginning of the year, The first meeting was always a very positive chipper one about how well the company did and how much money the parent companies made. The next meeting a few weeks later was always very somber and cold. it was about yearly raises and bonuses for 45 min we would hear about how bad we did and if you got a raise at all you didn't deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Most of your own managers don't believe in the 2020 vision, but luckily money and fear is a great motivator.
