    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Executive team was accessible for airing of concerns, very family oriented, provided good work life balance.

    Cons

    Needed better on the job training in certain key departments. Needed better access to archived files, offsite storage was too far from main office.

    I have been working at TransMontaigne full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love the job, great place to work great way to get your foot in the door and get some experience then go to another company because everyone else pays more.

    Cons

    Lowest paid in the industry. They know they are and they are not going to do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your operators!!!!!!! Why would you want to be known as the lowest paid company in this industry. You can't keep anyone because they are going to other companies paying more.

    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

    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 .

    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.

    I have been working at TransMontaigne full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyable and open work environment, training (formal and informal), co-workers and management.
    I see the reviews and wonder if the employees listed here work for the same company! No job is peaches and cream however this one is close. I have enjoyed an excellent work environment and while the work can be daunting at times I know I have someone I can rely on for assistance.

    Cons

    Challenges include inter-company communication or lack thereof. I've noticed that a number of employees and/or departments have the CYA mentality which may be indicative of what others speak but if one takes care of their responsibilities and communication discrepancies and issues...not sure of the problem

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate the culture present at the Atlanta office. Pay can be improved but pay increases for the sake of increases are not smart business moves. Pay for training, create a management training program for those employees that desire it and existing managers. Choose future managers from that team and watch the improvements in the company.
