    I have been working at DCP Midstream LP full-time

    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 have been working at DCP Midstream LP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every corporation is going to have its good and bad, however this company is mostly on the upside of things. Good benefits and each of my supervisors has been interested in my well-being. They work with me regarding family events and time off (vacation and sick, etc).

    Cons

    I was led to believe some incorrect things about promotions when I was hired on. Oil and gas industry is too volatile to be really comfortable, however those of us who have been born and raised in this type of economy are all-too-comfortable with it anyhow. Good pay for the job description, not necessarily good pay for the actual job tasks you'll be asked to do.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about raises and promotions. It seems only your friends get either.

    Pros

    Good culture to work for with a one team mentality. Entry level allows you to quickly learn new skills in the midstream and gas processing industry. Safety and environmental focused operations.

    Cons

    As a compliance coordinator there is not a system in place for promotions; after a few years of doing the same job there is not much motivation to stay with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Giving employees an opportunity to advance their career would go along way in keeping them motivated to continue working hard for DCP.
