    I worked at Tallgrass Energy Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great working conditions with all the toys. In an industry as big as oil/gas, you get work on top of the line equipment that you might not otherwise get to see.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, oil/gas means working long hours in very remote locations under austere conditions. You have to love what you are doing, if you are going to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running off and/or firing all your talent

    Pros

    Is a good place to work. Good schedule, not shift work. Is an expanding company with chances to grow

    Cons

    Management is lacking. Took a lot of knowledge in the gas pipeline word and are trying to run an liquids line the same way. Not willing to change to get better

    Pros

    Decent salary. Not very hard work

    Cons

    Poor management, particularly in the scheduling group. Never challenged. Inconsistent salaries amongst employees. No real incentive to work harder or do more than what is required. Very little training that would benefit an employee outside of scheduling. No real culture. Pretty mundane work environment. No real perks to the job. Clock in clock out. This list could go on.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure they'd listen anyways

    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.

    Pros

    Great pay, great management, great pipelines! I am out in the field actually working on the pipelines and love what I do. Benefits are great!! Can't see myself working for another company.

    Cons

    Reading the reviews on here, seems like the corporate office in Lakewood has some issues. But if you are looking to work the actual pipelines and out in the field, you will enjoy it. I have no cons for us out in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees for money saving ideas!

    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.

    Pros

    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.
