      Great Company

      Pros

      Great people from top to bottom. Leadership sticks to their guns, and does what they say

      Cons

      Naturally a conservative company, and slow to invest in some innovative measures, but not to be mistaken as failure to be the best.

      Excellent Company

      May 7, 2021 - Engineer II in Houston, TX

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -I appreciated the down-to-business culture. No frills. No pep rally. -Most I've worked with showed high level of professionalism. All employees whom I've worked closely with were bright. -Management supported technical growth, and was not frugal as long as clearly justified and beneficial to the role. -Benefits, pay, and perks were great. It may not be best in class - but it struck a good balance between work-life, pay, and security. -Middle management and senior leadership were competent, from my observation.

      Cons

      -Promotion opportunities were hard to come by. -Although one of the most well known companies in Houston, there were not much community activities taking place. -If you're straight out of college, and seeking a more early career centered network, KM might not be the best place. You will still build valuable connections, but be ready to work.

      Pros

      There is lots to learn at Kinder Morgan and the people that work for Kinder Morgan are always great to work with when they stick around

      Cons

      All levels of Management are over worked by the continuous demands of their jobs and the stacking of more job duties that fall outisde of job descriptions. There is a lack of surrounding support knowledge that is within the business units because the good people that are hired usually get burned out and leave.

      Pros

      Benefits start day one and the PTO program is generous.

      Cons

      Management does not take employees concerns seriously. The employees that work hard are overlooked for advancement because upper management has favorites that do little to no work and are not held to the same standard.

      Pros

      They are family oriented and will go above and beyond to help you and your family. Coworkers are great and the pay is very competitive.

      The cons is there's not enough jobs once you get laid off. Wish there were openings closer to where I live.
