    Pros

    I worked for El Paso in Houston in the IT department. I learned a lot during my time there. We always had the best IT technology available to us, and people were very knowledgable and helpful.

    Days could be really long if working to resolve an issue. We moved office space 4 times in the 8 months I worked there. My desk at the end was a very tiny 1/2 sized cubicle.
