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

    Pros

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

    Scheduling can be hectic when blending season is going on but a necessity. Expect regulations can make the future even more burdensome.

    Be more proactive

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

    Pros

    My department was small and well managed. I had plenty of growth opportunities and a diverse foundation of experience when I left. The work could be challenging but I had great support.
    Soild benefits.
    The company was dedicated to avoiding layoffs when oil prices tanked.

    Cons

    Inter-department communication could definitely use improvement.
    Safety is the top priority but after that it all comes down to the bottom line.

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, competitive benefits, and good working conditions. This is company that lives their core values of honesty, integrity, and respect for people. There is also a lot of opportunity for growth and lateral or upward movement within the company.
    They value and promote hard working employees.

    Cons

    They operate really lean on personnel and always on a tight budget, which is good for shareholders but challenging for employees. This is a serious business with a fast pace and where perfection is expected; when you deal with hazardous products and governmental oversight there is little room for error.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to type fast, your email in box will always be full and learn to enjoy conference calls. :)

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary, respect for personal time, great benefits, challenging roles. I enjoy working for Kinder Morgan in a mid level management role. I am given the respect I earn and can expect to move upward should opportunities open.

    Cons

    Very little to compensation for higher education.
    Senior management are at times like a good old boys club. That can be expected in any organization, though. A few of the senior managers are complete narcissists, and you end up dealing with personality conflicts that shouldn't be the responsibility of the employee. Bit, I guess you get that anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to malignant narcissistic tendencies. It can be demoralizing to the staff to have to deal with such behavior.
