    I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline full-time

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for if you are self motivated and creative. Flexible work hours with no one watching time clock, just make you get you job done plus some and you'll be ok (coming from someone who thinks one should strive for excellence).

    Cons

    The lack of structure some may find frustrating. One needs to be fully aware of the value plains brings and then how their job ties into that value and then things are ok; this could be a steep learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with the cash flow and perhaps go across the aisle to break down some of the silos that seem to exist between business units.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Plains All American Pipeline full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The personable traits of the cooperate office and your upper management.
    Home time, personal relationships with customers, company benefits, salary/bonuses and not becoming a overall cooperate number.

    Cons

    If your person that just wants a paycheck then don't apply. If your not the best in being a "Crudeogelist" and a top of market driver you won't last.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the opportunity and keep on doing what makes this company great.

    Pros

    Best paying truck driving job in U.S., great benefits. 100 hrs sick time, 100 hrs vacation, 10 paid holidays and much more

    You cannot use your cellphone while working, they will fire you. The saftey guy is always sneaking around trying to catch you doing something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better open door policy, you have to use chain of command like the military.
