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

    Pros

    They pay well, full benefits, 401k contributions, boot allowance, they pay for your uniforms and to get them cleaned. Most of the people I work with are fantastic and I hope to continue some friendships beyond this job.

    Cons

    The upper management doesn't care if you have family emergency , you cannot be 1 minute late(I was written up for my 6:31 clock in, you could be working 24 hours a week or you could be pulling 70, depending on what's going on there isn't any days off during the times you have a ton of hours. Some of the supervisors are rude, not at all people persons. On day shift they loom over your shoulder. They've asked other employees not to go to the hospital for injuries on the job before. The union reps bend to every will of the company. In the year and a half I've been here I haven't been to one union meeting(they don't hold any) but still have union dues taken from my check.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors could use a course or two in how to talk to people. There are people who should be in higher positions that are being held down by management unfairly, so I would look into the candidates you're picking for the management jobs you post, you're too political.

    Moving around the company is difficult due to the specialized nature of most of the departments.

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time

    Pros

    9/80 schedule
    Some great people to work with-unfortunately they tend to leave or be forced out
    Manager actually told me that they will force you out if they don't "like" you
    Okay for just starting your career but don't plan to have a future of growth-must wait for someone to leave a position and do God knows what to be selected-seriously
    Money is decent but not competitive
    Nice building
    Decent insurance
    Some cool smart people with morals

    Cons

    Nepotism at its finest-spouses, parents, children and siblings on the same floor
    Unprofessional-many lack social skills, emotional intelligence, morals, values and education
    Management does not stand for what's right and foster's an environment for insecure phonies to continue to create liabilities
    Cliquish, classless, backwoods thinking, ignorant, immature employees who aren't used having to anything who will do anything to hold on to their jobs so that they can continue to be lazy and mediocre. Obviously, they KNOW no other company will tolerate the bafoonery or mediocrity
    No growth unless you do unscrupulous things (pick your poison)
    Good ol boy network
    Not progressive
    Lazy liars
    Antiquated technology
    If you're uneducated and brown nose you can be promoted multiple times-seriously
    Management demonstrates lack of integrity
    Cursing and arguing on the floor in front of employees
    Management will blatantly lie (not bright and quite pathetic when dealing with an intelligent person)
    No culture appreciation, values or inclusion like other successful companies
    Tries to intimidate by using fear, lies and bogus accusations. It doesn't work on grounded people who aren't dependent on the company.
    Soulless...literally worse than most corporations
    Lack of accountability

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach about integrity, company values etc. This is for HR as well. These are just a filler apparently. When you are aware of injustices being done and do nothing you are just as guilty. Karma has a weird way of coming around... Promoting incompetence and brown nosers will create more liabilities. Value great employees and stock prices will improve

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, different schedules, to work (9/80, regular, etc), pay for bus passes or parking (Houston), I like my department

    Cons

    A lot of work and multi-tasking, sometimes work on the weekends for like a few minutes here and there to assist with carriers

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to those who really work hard and are willing to put in the extra effort to ensure smooth operations

    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of turnover gives young professionals a chance to move around the company.
    Good medical benefits.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Core Principles sound good but are not followed.
    Good old boys network and if you are different you will not progress.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot pretend your company into greatness. Two years with EBIDA and growth negative and stock at $20 or below does not look great next to your peers.
