Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Enterprise Products full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent benefits 401K match; subsidized parking/transportation.

Cons

Highly political and centralized envionment in IT. Managers have no clue about technology and are micro managers. No place to grow.

Advice to Management

Learn from people who have joined you from outside and do an honest introspection as to where you can improve. Be prepared to challenge status quo and implement change. Higher external consultants from Booze or McKinsey to completely reorg and change your IT organization. Make every individual in IT reapply for their jobs.

    I have been working at Enterprise Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CEO very knowledgeable leading the company to profitability. If all you want is a decent paycheck, then Enterprise is an OK place to work. Bus fare (or parking) is subsidized. Half day Fridays. Good health care. stock options. Pension 4% match on 401k

    Cons

    Leadership does not cross over to IT dept. Spoiled user with a 'small company' mentality. Micro-managers who don't have the knowledge or experience to make a decision and enforce the 'rules'. No work from home opportunities.

    I have been working at Enterprise Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The program has grown significantly and there has been more executive support of the rotational program as a whole. The third year focuses on Project Management and as a third year EDRP I have a project portfolio of around $9MM. This leads me to believe that they trust me with the level of responsibility required to manage small to medium projects on my own.

    Cons

    There is no clear picture about what transpires at the end of the three year program and how the transition will occur and the level of personal "say" in the permanent position. There tends to be some shortfalls in the mentoring capabilities across the board. There is no formal review process to assess your progress against others in the program.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the "official database - PODS" so that people can use and believe the data stored in there. This provides a huge obstacle to multiple departments and people across the company.

    Provide a better interface between the commercial responsibilities and the engineered solution so that people can deliver on cost and schedule.
