    Pros

    Great pay, people, and benefits.

    Too many mergers, lots of change, not enough time to train and allow employees to adjust. High turnover. Managers always in meetings, not often available for staff.

    Pros

    Operators take pride in the facility and front line managers are very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Management couldn't care less about investing in their employees future. Should just be thankful they are paying you.

    Advice to Management

    Try retaining employees instead of letting them leave. It gets old training new employees every 6 months.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Salaries aren't as high as others in industry, but if you do a good job the bonus can make up for it.

    Cons

    Company is getting too big. All flexibility we used to have (work from home when sick) is now gone. Promotions are difficult to get because they seem to promote based on who you are friends with instead of qualifications. Also, promotions on hold often due to company constantly purchasing other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees a little work flexibility in order to help with home/work balance - working from home, flexible hours, etc. Long-term employees who stay through every acquisition and major organization change should feel appreciated, so if you aren't going to promote the or pay them the industry standard, give them something to keep the happy.

    Start investing in renewable resources and stop pursuing old fossil fuel technology.

    Pros

    Great culture, company is doing great, flexible with schedule (work, life, and school balance), good pay for location, Fortune 100 company (I believe)

    Cons

    Since ETP bought Stripes, culture has changed quite a bit, sadly; Retail side of business seems to not take as much priority as it used to

    Advice to Management

    Keep the retail customers in mind more often, they help pay the bills.
