    Pros

    People that are not managers are good people to work with. Well mostly. It's an ok job in oil and gas, but you do not want to stay there.

    Cons

    Terrible managers especially in accounting. Very bureaucratic. Open environment is like having big brother looking over your shoulder. Micro manage. They need new management.

    Advice to Management

    Look at lower management and see why people are unhappy.

    Pros

    Intellectual coworkers. Open environment so you can see out the windows. Flex schedule in terms of what time you come in to work. There can be the opportunity to grow rapidly. Conversations are enjoyable.

    Cons

    The company is very department specific on if you will enjoy your time at TransMontaigne. There are departments that have very knowledgeable employees and others where it is lacking. There are some departments with micro managers and others without. Raises have been below par. The company is currently for sale making the need for many temps and back filling of positions.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees know more about the business so you can gain insight from their input.


  7. "TranMontaignes upper management lacked in every aspect and maintains a good ole boy mentality"

    Pros

    Learning oil and gas from a fuel supply perspective, and working with outside customers.

    Cons

    Upper management needed to be trained. They were promoted to manager status without experience or knowledge of the group. Managers themselves typically had no training, even at times lacked knowledge of the business itself. The company did not promote from within unless you were a friend of managements. They do not recognize hard work, and human resources is not employee friendly. They promote a negative and harrassing atmosphere to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the turnover in a department, that will tell you the management competency. Flatline your management. There are too many levels within the company that aren't necessary. Promote open communication, and revamp the human resource staff. Have a consultant come in and evaluate the pay scale based on job duties and skills. Re-evaluate employees resumes and competencies yearly to make sure your employees skills are being utlized completely, and that you have the best fit for their skillset.

    Pros

    The pay in some departments.

    Cons

    The turnover rate tells the real story.
    This could be a good place to work if they replace upper management including HR.

    Advice to Management

    Explore your turn over rate. Stop allowing good employees to leave while you keep bad management.


  9. "Lower Management needs work."

    Pros

    Directors are very familiar with business process and are always available to answer questions.

    Cons

    Almost no one is happy working there. One look around the office is met by the overwhelming feeling of despair, and hopelessness. The turnover rate makes a restaurant look like a stable industry.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers to learn what the employees are responsible for. Learn to support your employees and understand what their career goals are. Learn that positive reinforcement is NOT a BAD thing!

    I have been working at TransMontaigne full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work for. They promote within the company as much as possible, and good company to get your feet wet in this industry. Have some good Managers to work for and with.

    Cons

    Low starting pay in all levels of this company. Normally you start here and get enough training that other like companies will hire you for a lot more then you make.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your operational workers. They see the whole picture, a lot of managers look out for themselves not their employees.

    Pros

    It is a good place to start and move on to better yourself. You have a good group of people actually doing the work out in the field. Good People in Denver in the HR department. Still going through the transition hope for change.

    Cons

    Good old boy management, management has no clue on what goes on in the field. They try making all the decisions from the corporate office. Lacks room for advancement . They just hire their cronies and keep the bad policies going. Lacking in safety, they put out a manual and think that there safety program. Most employees work here for a couple years and go on the majors making more money and do less work. No credible bonus Program.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your best assets, the cost that you spend retraining people you could save by just offering more. Use and train people for advancement. You will get more if you include you field people in making decisions. Stream line your paperwork and make your corporate personnel support your assets .
