    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the transition from GATX to Kinder Morgan except for the fact that my age made the retirement transition not worth the 21 years I had put into GATX

    Cons

    I am sorry the transition came at a time when I was suffering a personal crisis. It would have been better with GATX

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of the business you take over.

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

    Pros

    Good company to work for I was compensated extremely well upon elimination of my position after 11 months service

    Cons

    There is no system to abide with for executing projects, each project manager has the liberty to piece mill the engineering and construction of his project at will. There is no audit or check balance to verify what the PE is doing is in the best interest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Executing projects and purchasing materials and equipment should follow a defined procedure and should be approved by higher management before award. Changed orders should not be awarded by field inspection or contract superintendents without vetting against the contract and approval by higher management.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience
    They promote ethics

    Cons

    They promote 'leadership' but do a horrible job with training or follow up.
    They don't follow through with pushing out programs; they release it then it just goes away.
    They don't remove underperforming employees; they promote them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who aren't qualified for the job.
    Work on building positive morale rather than constantly nit picking people.
    Provide actual management and leadership training versus the BS that is currently being utilized.
