    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you can get your foot in the door you can usually have employment for the long term. Employees tend to take pride in their work and excel even when not given the tools.

    Cons

    SW tools for employees are 15-20 yrs out of date along with hardware. This causes a lot of wasted time and effort. Managers and above are a good old boy network of the worst kind. Bad management is not removed or corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Try to invest back into the company .

    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy work. Low expectations. VPs make most decision. 9/80 lots of vacation. Benefits are ok. But insurance goes up every year while pay increases less than 2.5%.

    Cons

    Cheap, greedy and unethical with employees and contractors. Have policies but only follow them when convenient. Hide behind them when they don’t want to address issues.

    Most of the VPs in my department had very little knowledge of what was happening day to day.

    Everything about the company is about cost. They nickel and dime employees. They try everything not to pay contractors agreed to rates. IT is a joke. They talk about doing less with more but they have to have 4X the people to do the work when software could be purchased.

    Great place if you just want to punch the clock and get a pay check. Just negotiated a good salary before to start. They only give at best a 2.5% increase and good luck on promotions. If they promise anything get it in writing.

    Advice to Management

    At the very least act like you care about your employees. Not just your lousy stock price.
