    Good management to an extent. Good co-workers. Their is more cons than pros.

    analyst program and decent pay.

    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 (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.

    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!
