    I worked at Targa full-time

    Pros

    The company has a lot of great young analysts who are friendly.

    Cons

    Analyst development program is not what it's advertised to be and is ruined by politics from the management. HR and many other crucial departments are non existent and functions are outsourced. Salary is below average and raises are hard to get.

    Advice to Management

    There is a huge room for improvement. From a culture & values perspective the company doesn't know what it want's to be.

    I worked at Targa (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros unless you are unexperienced and need a job to get started in the field.

    Cons

    They lie to you to get you in the door, they under pay you and then want to criticize everything everyone does. Bunch of back stabbing hypocrites.

    Advice to Management

    Find new real qualified people that's why no one wants to work for Targa!

    Pros

    Small company so plenty of opportunites to learn.

    Cons

    People hoard knowledge and work. Culture is under developed and carries a lot of bitternes from their dynegy days.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on teambuilding and less on finger pointing. Help people work together instead of against each other.

    I worked at Targa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Middle management personnel were very insightful and would often go the extra mile to help.
    Strong group of young analysts who challenge each other and existing, antiquated processes
    Office environment fairly laid back

    Cons

    Analyst Program not really what I was lead to believe it would be
    Very few actual mentors that can bridge the gap from analysts to managers
    Few meaningful opportunities exist that offer cross functional training opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Define what the Analyst Program is really designed to accomplish. Don't mislead potential recruits by spinning it as something that it isn't.
