Low man on the totem pole (Former Employee) – Tulsa,OK – June 23, 2013
The benefits are very good, and that is all I can say that is positive about DCP.
The company is having to cut back on everything to make up for losing millions of dollars and over spending on projects.
The moral is very poor. Negative persons in management positions who don't train the staff, just assume they will figure it out or ask a coworker. Advancement is non existent, unless you are able to be a yes person and never question the process, oh and suck up to your supervisor.
By far, the best quality people and experience I've had as a safety Manager. I would still be there today had I not gotten married and moved out of the area. If you're fortunate enough to get a job here, count yourself as blessed. Best of luck and enjoy!
Many of the 2nd and 3rd level supervisors are not worth their weight. When making decisions concerning pipeline repairs it seems that environmental contamination are not an issue and long term asset management and protection are not valued.
Great outdoor work environment.
Not Compliant with safe work practices concerning PHMSA and OSHA Compliance.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – June 28, 2016
Company has very good benefits. Co workers knew their job and were willing to pass on their knowledge to all. Supervisors and management allowed employees to work flex time as long as job was completed on time.
Strong company overall. They're attempting to challenge old school mindsets and really change the business. To employees it can feel unorganized and not thought out, but it's refreshing to see an company attempt to advance the business
- Bonus paid well - Benefits are good - Solid progression for high performers - Probably understaffed in several groups - Burn out is real

Mechanic X (Current Employee) – La Gloria, TX – June 8, 2016
Typical day consisted of maintaining natural gas engines, pumps, generators and turbines. Responsible for working through written work orders and also keeping up with PM's on a weekly/monthly/yearly basis depending on the specific equipment. I worked a Monday - Friday schedule off on weekend and on call every two weeks.
DCP is a great company to work for as long as there isn't any layoffs involve. The Plant supervisor i work for is an honest hard working guy and has always been up front with me. I was suppose to be transferred to another facility and instead I am getting laid off. The supervisor is such a great guy he even advised us to put in at other plant facilities and he would let us use him as a reference. I have learned a lot form this company about the way a facility is suppose to be ran and how to be a operator. The co-workers are really good people to work for and the supervisors will do what they can to keep the employees happy. The hardest part of the job for me, well truthfully once I learned the process and the flow everything became so much easier. So I guess that would have been the hardest part. As of right now there isn't anything hard about it.The most enjoyable part of the job for me is that its a one man shift ran 24 hours around the clock so your by yourself and you don't have anyone breathing down your back to get things done. Its at your own pace as long as its done and done the right way the first time, and your not wasting company money.
Free lunches when there is project going on.
shift is 6AM-6PM/5:30AM-5:30PM-6PM-6AM/5:30PM-5:30AM
As an ex employee at DCP Midstream. I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences I had ever had. I worked with an extremely professional group of people who carried not only character and personality but an abundant of knowledge. The plant supervisor, which was my supervisor, was by far the best management I have ever encountered. He was able balance the fun, leniency with the "have a job to do" pro sauna. he brought the moral of the overall asset to a 100%.
Electrical Tech (Current Employee) – Cheyenne Wells, CO – April 6, 2016
Working at DCP is a great experience and I have had the opportunity to broaden my electrical skills here. Unfortunately we are in the business of natural gas and helium. We are in a serious cut do to oil prices and there for I am forced to look elsewhere for employment.
Great pay and benefits
