    Advice to Management

    Listen to those below you. They have great ideas for process improvement. Just because we have always done it that way doesn't mean it can't be done more efficiently.

    Pros

    Good benefits, plenty of hours

    Cons

    No room for advancement, No life, management doesn't want to pay anybody in order to maximize their annual bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Offer raises to good workers who are obviously better workers than others instead of paying everyone the same despite co-workers poor work ethic and attitude. It just makes sense to pay your good guys at least a little more money.

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, good fellow employees, free water

    Cons

    Vacation and holiday schedule is horrible, bosses treat employees like middle schoolers, lots of finger pointing, have to answer questions about every expense, don't follow procedures, cut out bonuses and pay raises during downturn, 30% increase in benefit costs, bad upper management that rules by fear, no training or advancement within the company

    Advice to Management

    Value employees instead of treating them like a number on a balance sheet, reinstate bonuses and pay raises, instead of using 500 million received in a pipeline asset deal to pay down company debt, reinvest in your employees

    Pros

    Good work/life balance for most positions- very dependent on your Business Unit.

    Cons

    Company runs lean...thus you can forego any hopes for the use of new technology for back office support, as well as any on-site employee wellness perks you may see at its competitors.

    Pros

    The benefits are the only highlight of this company and depending on what crew you're on actually helps the shift go by

    Cons

    If you're going to HBT Houston bulk terminal here's a heads up, completely understaffed . 4 on 2 off they are trying to find a mandatory way for you to come in one day also terminal manager just implemented if you can't find anyone to cover your vacation you're not allowed to go on vacation which is odd because we're hourly employees and not management. If your hired in as an equipment operator you'll be opening rail car doors for at least 2 to 3 years the pay probably be 16 to $18 an hour I've been here 3 years no raise you're going to be unable to transfer the liquid side if that's the main reason you wanted to get hired

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't matter they don't listen to the hourly employees anyway constantly threatening us with their jobs after every meeting always reminding us there's the door right there
