    Pros

    Decent pay and bonus structure for management positions, good employee benefits, good employee discount programs, no massive layoffs during the economic downturn was excellent

    Budget constrictions get in the way of core values, politics serve a role in how some people get upper management positions, the lack of employee advancement and training programs is astonishing for such a large company

    Advice to Management

    Invest much more in various training programs for employees in the office, provide career path guidance

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are always projects to work on and plenty of resources to pull from in terms of resources and connections. The office is in a great area and there are many friendly faces at the office. Most coworkers are great to be around and happy hours and potlucks are a great way to schmooze. Lots of opportunities to grow here and work your way up the ladder.

    Cons

    Project management is often obsessed with the bottom line in the near term, that they end up delaying projects and extenuating costs overall. Technology is lacking heavily with not much access to databases or software that competitors have. Very conservative tone with some employees that at the very least is rude, not to say is borderline harrassment. Read the fine print of the HR manual to really get a sense of how the company is run.

    Advice to Management

    Management should avoid politics and demeaning lower employees. Sustainability and planning only help lower costs for future projects!

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits. Great, friendly and loyal co-workers / employees. Clean & safe work environment.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work long hours , tons of overtime during ME closing and some weekends . Accounting department not streamlined. Poor accounting software. Wear too many hats and have to put out "too many fires" during and outside of month end close. Too much work for the pay. Antiquated management style and micro-management a normal practice. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline accounting duties. Some duties should be a "one man shop" for more efficient accounting. Push for updated accounting software. If your team has to work holidays and weekends, some comp time should be rewarded.

    Good pay and benefits. Good employer savings program. Military vet friendly and actively recruits for them. I highly recommend the company for that alone.
