    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Kinder Morgan for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, management tries hard to create positive work environment, vibrant, busy company that is doing well, has learned how to work effectively with volatility of their business, stable but not stagnant, are not afraid to remove ineffective people so you are not stuck with bad workers, very pleasant, recently remodeled building, very clean, cleaning service is there all day.

    Cons

    One of the strategies to manage volatility of their business is to keep a lot of people on contract, permanent positions do not always open very often, contractors of course do not get paid days off usually. The business of running pipelines is not always super interesting. Don't get a lot of perks like company-paid snacks or meals.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time for more than a year

    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.
