    I have been working at Plains Midstream full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Senior leadership has recognized that some of the legacy culture within the organization is less than healthy. Recent structural changes to business groups will have a positive impact to employee culture and the overall work environment. New leaders have been added to bring fresh perspective and positive change. These new leaders are reasonable, approachable, collaborative, and very supportive. A progressive change...

    Cons

    Significant change is always difficult for mature organizations that have been stagnated for long periods of time. Removing roadblocks, tearing down silo's and empires are a part of change. Longer-term employees can view these changes as misguided or unneeded stress. The harsh reality is that some individuals may no longer be a good fit in the dynamic and collaborative work environment...

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

    Pros

Quarterly bonuses were good; however they have now been changed to annual bonuses. The 10 Flex days per year are very nice to have. The actual work itself is good and challenging. The compensation overall is good if you are willing to put up with the politics, intimidation and poor management and if you...

    Cons

    Bullying, intimidation and manipulation are tools largely used by the management here! Certain people in management or with ties to senior executives are making this company a very toxic workplace and they need to be removed!! If you work here, your hard work will never be appreciated; rather you will get an unexpected harsh conversation from your manager telling you that you do not put in enough overtime. In my experience,...

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employee's like garbage; a little appreciation goes a long way. Get rid of management who are incompetent and/or treat their employees poorly / unfairly. This bullying attitude does not inspire morale and until this behavior is gone, you will continue to lose good, loyal, hardworking employees. Compensate employees who are willing to work overtime, extensive overtime should never be demanded, ESPECIALLY...
