    I have been working at Tallgrass Energy Partners full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most positions pay well. Company makes good money, so it is fairly stable. Some good people to work with depending on the department. If you are looking at a position that is located in the field, you will get more respect than working in either one of the corporate offices.

    Cons

    Managers (in Lakewood office) have a tendency to not listen to their employees. Standards aren't very tight. No training, even though they claim you will get some, on your yearly review. Work life balance isn't equal, it's all about "what have you done for me lately".
    HR doesn't seem to care about the employee, but ANYTHING to help management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees. Be fair and trust their expertise, that is why you hired them. Take training on how to be a LEADER and not a BOSS.

    I have been working at Tallgrass Energy Partners full-time

    Pros

    The flexibility about where and when you work if something comes up is useful. If you need to work from home time to time because of a sick kid or the Comcast guy, they are pretty understanding.

    The amount of work space is nice.

    Cons

    Your success at TG is based on who you know, not what you know, especially if you know some of the men at the top. It is widely known that some of senior management is grossly under-qualified. "Fitting in" is incredibly important at TG as they do a great job of embodying the practices of an “old boy’s” network.

    In addition, there is little room for growth as there are no new positions to move into because the company itself isn't growing and much of the workforce is older and will most likely stay until retirement. The company just spent $100M+ on converting one of their natural gas pipelines to oil. With the oil market looking bleak, this has proved to be an unwise business decision. In my opinion, there's a good chance they will need to raise more capital or end up laying off some of their workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Start trying to run a company, not a frat house.

    Ambitious, hardworking team and everyone effort is appreciated
    Great supervisors
    Positive atmosphere

    Cons

    HR dept was unprepared and somewhat unprofessional. Poor on-boarding process. Other than that, great place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate HR process. This is an important aspect to starting off on the right foot and producing excellent quality of work. HR "blew off" questions and was very unresponsive or proactive.

    I have been working at Tallgrass Energy Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely love working for Tallgrass Energy; it's the best job I've ever had! My boss is collaborative, fair and sets a very impressive standard for hard work. The team I work with is cooperative, hard working and never afraid to jump in to support the overall department. The benefits are OUTSTANDING and far superior to any other company that I've worked for/with (I've been a benefits administrator for several other companies during my career). The employer's contribution to the 401k and the Executive Management works very diligently to ensure that all of these benefits remain an asset to the employee. I have recommended Tallgrass Energy several times to family and friends and I can't say enough positive things about my job!

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of much. As with any job, there are little annoyances here and there but they are nothing that lasts long or affect my overall positive perception of my job. Being a newer company, there aren't as many opportunities for advancement as a more established company may have, nor as many resources at times but the work ethic and level of teamwork helps make up for this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I truly believe that most managers have the best interest of their employees in mind when making decisions. I know that this is true for Executive Management as I've seen it first hand.

    Pros

    Job posted with specific qualifications, easy to apply online,

    Cons

    No follow through, had interview with no further contact. HR director & VP seemed bored & process focused certainly looking for a human computer/ paper pusher asked an age-related question - illegal

    Advice to Management

    Fair hiring practices, friendliness is a great skill, don't lie to interviewees - when you say you'll follow up - do it!
