    I worked at Excel Midstream Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    High pay due to lack of benefits

    Cons

    Terrible Benefits
    President has a "God" complex, there is nothing that they have never done and a master of everything.
    If you are not personal friends (outside of the office) with the President, you will be the first to go, no matter who messed up.
    Environment is ruled by fear from the top. Be quiet and do as you are told.
    President expects all employees to sacrifice (personal time, family, kids, etc.) for the company, no matter what.

    Advice to Management

    No advice can be given to Management, they are the problem!!

    Pros

    Lots of meaningful work with some of the best managers, engineers and designers in the business. The standards are high but so are the rewards. The management has assembled an excellent team hand-picked from several other top firms. The atmosphere is friendly, slightly competitive and saturated with the confidence one would expect from truly competent professionals. As the industry is very fluid, most of these people have worked together earlier in their careers – resulting in excellent communications.

    Cons

    Work at a start-up company in an "at will" employment state may not be for everybody - you get out of it what you put into it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep carefully vetting prospective employees - we only want the best.

    Pros

    The wages, people and the atmosphere here at Excel Midstream Solutions are great! The owner and upper managment are very flexible, personable and really down to earth when talking to them. I really enjoy working here and look forward to a what my future holds with Excel Midstream solutions...

    Cons

    At work as in life you cannot choose family members, neighbors and in most cases co-workers. There are always a few bad apples anywhere you go. This place is no different...

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to weed out the bad apples around here. Thank you for allowing me to be part of the Excel Midstream Solutions Team!!!

    Pros

    It is a young and smaller company, so you have that close relationship with your co-workers and everyone has to care about the product being sent out the door for the entire company to be successful. If you have a concern or issue the door is defiantly open to management, you are heard, and the situation is promptly addressed. They have a flexible schedule and are willing to work with each individual’s specific needs. The pay is good and over time is available if wanted. The company strives to use the latest technology and offers its employees many ways to learn new things.

    Cons

    The company only lacks a few perks that a larger company would have, but I am sure as it grows it will gain those perks and continue to be a very competitive employer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
