    I have been working at Targa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Co-workers got that (Good-Old-Boy) mentality. That's Ok.
    No problem furthering your education if you want. Targa encourages it. I got (2) certifications under my belt on Targas dime. Management is cool, they don't micromanage, just do your job and you'll be good.

    Cons

    Let's be real, pay isn't bad. Some individuals complain about it being to low. It might be low compared to industry standards. My advice, you should ask for what you're worth when you come through the door. If you get it, cool, if it's not what you want. Look somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    None. During this oil crisis Targa is still moving forward. So management is doing something right.

    Pros

    analyst program and decent pay.

    Cons

    No 9/80 or flex time. Managers of certain groups will micromanage you right out of there!

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees do their job and rely on positive reinforcement rather than constant negativity and scare tactics.

    I have been working at Targa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Downtown location, nice salary though non-competitive, and the work is manageable. The day-to-day workers are nice.

    Cons

    Management is unprofessional, distasteful, and micro manages. The processes are outdated as well as the systems and business practices. Company does not understand compliance on all levels and the atmosphere is abrasive, uncomfortable, and stressful. Would not recommend.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talent and allow the talent to flourish through experience and added knowledge. Respect employees and understand the industry/market better which would allow more stable communication and progress.

    Pros

    Growing company, many of opportunities. Extremely good salaries and benefits for upper-level management.

    Cons

    Offers very little non-monetary employee benefits and workplace amenities. No minorities in middle and upper level management positions.

    Diversity in upper management is desperately needed, and more consideration for workplace amenities and comforts for the employees.
