    Pros

    This company is great to work for. They offer small team sizes, which allows for more personal growth. The work life balance is great. I thoroughly enjoy coming to work. Also, job security is not an issue here. There's plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    The company has policies that do not get communicated throughout the company. The policies are simply loaded onto the Intranet and employees are somehow expected to know where the policies are and to read them.

    My review and opinion of Energy Transfer Partners as a former employee

    Pros

    Most field employees are wonderful to work with; you feel like you are working with family! Lower levels of management (from field supervisors to Vice Presidents of the individual companies) are like every company: some are GREAT and some are on power trips and may be better utilized in administrative positions than in positions of authority. Benefits and pay are par for the industry. As far as the upper management is concerned, the company seems to be well managed and focused on providing reliable service to their customers. There is an excellent opportunity for training and on the job learning. Over all Pay raises for job classifications are good, but individual raises in a certain job are based on progressing through skill families by being "signed off' by other employees already in that family. I have seen people that are qualified not getting signed off because of, what appeared to me as, personal issues; conversely, I have seen people getting signed off that, in my opinion, need more on the job experience as well as formal training because of friendships with the evaluator.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not good for some employees in the field. Certain locations and job positions are busy and always getting called out as well as being required to travel extensively. Safety is preached, but I have seen it become secondary to reliability on many occasions. This can be a fast paced, highly stressful environment. There also seems to be pressure to contribute to their PAC.

    Good 'ol Boys ( & Girls) Club

    Pros

    The pay was good, at first.

    Cons

    The company is full of 'apple polishers'. Those types of people spend all day chatting it up with management, and in the end, are the people who get promoted. My manager would spend all day away from his/her desk, only to leave early every week to either take his/her kids to classes, or just because. My manager even once scheduled an appointment for a massage at 10:30am?!? He/she habitually came in to work later than me, and left work earlier than me on most days. My manager got away with a lot because she was chummy with the Controller (or anyone else who might have benefited them.) My manager let me have a good work/life balance for a while. Working from home as needed, tending to appointments and what not, until I went to HR to complain of some issues with him/her. Then everything changed once I brought to light everything he/she was getting away with. Needless to say at this company, if you 'go with the flow' when you're manager is getting away with murder, you'll be good. BUT go against your manager, and face the wrath. Company cares little about the worker bees, or how much overtime they work, or if the workload is overbearing. Zip your lips if the workload is too much, because that will surely be frowned upon once bonus/merit increases come around. There's little to no room for advancement. Bonuses and merit increases are a joke. Unless you part the red sea, your work is always considered mediocre.

    Dynamic, fast-paced work environment.

    Pros

    Positions are more generalists than specialists which affords you broad exposure to many disciplines outside of your own, which makes you very attractive to competitors.

    Cons

    A healthy work/life balance is difficult to achieve for most professional/management positions if you're a conscientious worker.
