    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Plains Midstream full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sr. Executive have recently been more transparent with long-term company strategy. Last town hall meeting was informative and inspiring.

    Cons

    Things happen fast within the company and are sometimes not thought out fully. However, this quick pace is one of the core values of the company as they pride themselves on being entrepenurial. Some leaders within the company are not leaders and need improvement in their leader skillset.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing information with employees, show the employees they are important assets.

    I have been working at Plains Midstream full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The culture of fear that Plains was notorious for under the previous President is the thing of the past for the most part. The new President genuinely cares about the company employees and is making an effort to listen to them.

    Cons

    Some pockets of politics still exist. Nepotism is still an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Only hire external candidates after you've exhausted internal options.

    I worked at Plains Midstream full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary and perks during my time there, but I have heard that both were cut, for junior positions, cuts were dramatic.

    Cons

    As indicated in the title, not for the fainted heart, smooch your way around in doing business, doing the right thing isn't necessary the right way, most important in delivery is how to help your senior leader get ahead and influence.

    Advice to Management

    During my time there, there weren't much interaction with senior management. My department was critical in managing day to day technologies but many initiatives were put on hold for programs such as the RightAngle deployment. Many within and outside of the organizations believed that the technology leadership team is spending way too much time and effort to reorganize themselves and offshore their core functionality,...
