    I worked at Enterprise Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Safety minded company. Awesome people out in the field. Some supervisors are really great people. Schedules are OK.

    Cons

    TOO safety minded!! Too much paperwork by one person to fill out in order to perform work and if you miss something you obviously get in trouble. Grown adults don't need to be babysat, but that's what EP wants. Put too much on the backs of the plant operators...not an operator friendly company. They expect operators to do the jobs of maintenance personnel. No bonuses. Communication between field and office personnel (mainly supervision) is horrible!

    Advice to Management

    Give the operators some slack! They are trying their hardest, yet they are always treated the worst. Listen to them more, especially when it comes to complaints about all the paperwork. Trim down some of the fat on safety forms. It can be done without compromising safety. Everyone is ready and willing to work safe and they need to be treated as such. They don't need so much micromanaging. Bonuses would be a great moral booster! Moral is low, do something to improve it.

    Pros

    I'm trying to think actually. Back in the day before they moved to downtown they actually gave out nice Christmas gifts.

    Cons

    Look at all the other reviews. They are very true especially the nepotism part. I was there when they were off of 6-10 and 290. I had the absolute worst boss in the world. She had to be Satan's mistress! You couldn't convince me otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    What's the point? They won't listen. Just because you're the biggest Midstream company in the US doesn't mean that employees will get their fair share unless you are part of the good old boy Network.

    I worked at Enterprise Products (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Not many when they lay you off at age 65 because you make too much money. I guess they don't believe that the longer you work at a company the more you will make.

    Cons

    They don't appreciate the work you do. They will lay you off afte ten years.

    Advice to Management

    Dan Duncan worked until his 70's. You lay people off when they reach 65. Almost all companies pay more for benefits after you are 65 and Texas is right to work. The way to save money is get rid of older employees.

    Pros

    You get paid the industry average for the job you do, benefits same as peer companies, field workers good that's it.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Bad supervisors, bad managers, bad directors, cronyism rampant, nepotism exists throughout, advancement only if your kin to another person in management, harassment of good workers while some do nothing at all and get praised.

    Advice to Management

    Company is so big you can hide your idiot kinfolks in all those supervisor positions but some day it will catch up!

    Pros

    The money and benefits are very good. The work is boring and thankless.

    Cons

    The supervisors are all brainless hicks. They hate there jobs and take it out on the drivers. Company does not foster teamwork and they do not promote or allow drivers to transfer.

    Advice to Management

    Stay off drivers backs. If you hate your job find a new one. Like the rest of the business world says. The c students all choose the oil field jobs.

    I worked at Enterprise Products (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was great years ago. But it quickly went downhill over the last 7 years.

    Cons

    If you are a supervisor, you can get a pass on everything. If you are not a supervisor or above and you're not at fault or your management doesn't listen to you, rest assured it will still be your fault.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe everything your supervisory staff tells you or leads you to believe.

    I have been working at Enterprise Products full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, insurance is competitive.

    Cons

    They treat their customers like crap. Employees worse. No work/life quality at all, All work No life! Been with Enterprise since they took over Texas Eastern products to this day promote the most useless incompetent people of the bunch so you have no supervisors that can help you. promotion is good ole boy system only and usually has a family tie-in through some relation to supervisor. Some areas hardly any work actually done except pencil whipping DOT inspections, Some areas supervisors are scared cause they no nothing about what you do again no help from them. Too much favoritism. You usually excel raise wise only if you are a big talker that kisses up well.

    Advice to Management

    Some recent changes gave people hope. Cronyism just as rampant as ever now though. Be honest with your employees. Everyone knows you want to re purpose your pipelines to single service products to support your exports to Europe. This will cost jobs in the future just be honest.
