    I worked at Energy Transfer Partners as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Travel and team members are good.

    Cons

    Management. The IT management has no real management style, other than Do as I say, not as I do. The procedures are ALL specific to single incidents. No global procedures. And they are terrible micro managers. If you dont like micro management, then DO NOT work in the IT dept at ETC.

    Advice to Management

    Put some faith in your employees. In the Houston office, there are several good employees, but the manager there practices micro management, and they have to do everything with his review and permission.

    Pros

    There's a lack of IT knowledge within the department at the senior most levels. This provides an opportunity to shine by helping with best practices and moving the department forward. The employees doing the work are friendly and competent.

    Cons

    When providing those best practices, you rarely receive recognition. Nepotism runs rampant, and the CIO favors loyalty over competence every time, to the tune of promoting inexperienced people beyond their means. Cheap hardware with lack of redundancy to save a few bucks means consistent outages. Hacks put in place by Sr. Dir of IT create a snowball effect that makes simple tasks difficult to accomplish. The IT mentality of Sr. Mgt. is give users just barely enough to get their jobs done, and force business decisions on them.

    Energy Transfer spends about 20% of what it should be spending on IT as compared to other Fortune 500 companies and it shows.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace best practices, promote based on merit rather than the buddy system. Reduce ROI caused by manual processes throughout the IT department.
