    I worked at DCP Midstream LP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Most coworkers are good people. It makes me put 20 words on this line but I don't have 20 words good to say.

    Cons

    The new MWP system not being used correctly. Combine with blowing the yearly budget by mid June. The bird dog management using all tools possible to fear you into doing way too much. The GPS is used more for management to black mail then for safety. Every month they publicly talk about the monthly firings. Employee moral is at a all time low. More then half of my co workers said they are bidding out of the company or retiring early due to the stress load and bad management. There is much much more to list.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like you want to be treated. Do your job and manage the budget better. The employees pay for this too.

    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.

    Seem to be held back by corporate structure. Missed the boat in both the Eagle Ford and Permian boom

    Advice to Management

    Spin off and become your own entity
