    I worked at Plains Midstream

    Pros

    Corporate in Calgary are bringing infrastructure up to 2015 standards. Corporate had many professional people to assist operations in the field

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the Schaefferstown, PA District Office. Lazy management that is more interested in hiring friends than hiring qualified people. District Office provided no support to Terminal Operations in the field. More interested in relocating friends from California than hiring, leading, and developing qualified people locally. More important to hire friends with the same religious beliefs.
