    I worked at Enterprise Products full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, generous bonus and stock grants, company values doing the right thing in its operations.

    Cons

    Management is entirely top-down, lower and mid-level managers are not empowered to make decisions. Job performance motivated by fear of superiors. Corporate policies on dress, vacation, work schedule, and travel are freely modified to be far more strict and punitive based on what management feels their superiors expect. Some departments are very well-run, with motivated employees advancing based on merit and enjoying a professional work environment. Other departments are run by petty dictators managing by shouting, demeaning, and coercing workers while promoting favorites regardless of ability, experience, or qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Look at turnover rates, when a director cycles through managers and staff every year to two years perhaps it is time to evaluate the director on something other than his or her budget.

    I worked at Enterprise Products full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Mont Belvieu kept you challenged and always moving. The number and variations of projects made it enjoyable to work. The vast amount of process equipment in the Mont Belvieu complex will expand your knowledge base.

    Cons

    What has made Enterprise successful is their ability to react to a market condition quickly. However that reaction normally required expedited projects. Many late nights and weekends.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Managers will go above and beyond to stunt your growth and mask their gross incompetence. The Mont Belvieu office operates like a family business **Nepotism**. Keep your career development goals to yourself...... your SHE-DEVIL boss may be offended.

    Advice to Management

    Launch a Mandatory annual process improvement program for managers. Force them to review and improve their processes.

    I worked at Enterprise Products full-time

    Pros

    Most people are very friendly, with a relaxed environment. Managers are pretty informal and easy to talk to. Doing better than other O&G companies

    Cons

    B-O-R-I-N-G! Just not much work going on. The informal atmosphere can go a bit too far, as there's some borderline sexual harassment going on (people offering shoulder massages from across the room, other suggestive statements that are not office-appropriate)

    Advice to Management

    Be more active, recognize that while a relaxed environment is OK, there are employees who will take it too far and present a liability to the company. HR should provide a refresher course on appropriate office behavior.

    I have been working at Enterprise Products full-time

    Pros

    EPD is doing well given the energy climate. Lots of key assets and remains profitable. I believe pay is competitive with good benefits.

    Cons

    The work can become stagnate, boring, and unchallenging - at least in the accounting area.
