    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    employer is located in a centralized location

    Cons

    Salary and management are horrible. Place is loaded with Trump based supporters. No vertical development unless you belong to "good ole boy system." You are overworked and required to work many of your days off. This is the place to be if you do not care about your career.

    Advice to Management

    What is the point of us trying to help in this area since they never listened to us employees?

    Working outside and lots of responsibility

    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, pension plan, can wear jeans every day in the office, 401(K) plan. Small office feel, but know you are working for a very large company.

    Cons

    Attendance points system. You get 1/2 point if you are late and a full point if you call in sick. After three points, you are written up. You feel that any little mistake you make, you will be let go. When you bring up this concern to management, the answer is, "Yes and it's happened before." People are afraid to go to work at the Argo terminal.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to look at the policies across the entire organization and make it the same for everyone. Get rid of the points system at Argo. They are one of the only terminals who has this. I think it is illegal to have hourly employees working 8 - 4 with only a 1/2 hour lunch and not allowed to take breaks. If you take a break, you have to work until 4:30 pm. This situation needs to be fixed.

    Pros

    Downtown parking or free metro pass is included

    Cons

    This place is where most people look out only for themselves and management is clueless, incompetent, does not care at all, or most likely all three. You have to figure out everything by yourself since training is nonexistent. Accounting uses ancient software that's useless if you work somewhere else (name one other major energy company that uses lawson) and they come up with in-house software that a frantic IT person has to put together since this company is always too cheap to spend on outside help. I knew people who were using 10+ year old laptops from the el paso energy days. The products controller is dumb as rocks and likes to backstab folks, her boss doesn't do anything since they're in the same boat and is probably just waiting it out for retirement. The other groups are not any better. I only saw dumb or mediocre folks staying around while the smart ones leave. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere if you want a real career.

    Advice to Management

    Accounting management needs to clean house and start over. Have a decent health insurance plan so it doesn't look that bad compared to competitors. Costs are too high and coverage lacking especially if you have a spouse or children that needs coverage.

    Pros

    Plenty of work seriously, lots and lots of work.

    Cons

    To few people to do the work. Constantly changing poorly written work procedures. Bottom line is you are a number to management.

    More people to do the work.
