El Paso prided itself on being the place to work. They provided an outstanding work/life balance and great benefits including a fitness center and an onsite Health Office. There was great incentive for health maintenance and safety. They really cared about their employees.
Career advancement was slow paced, but opportunities for lateral movement was plentiful.
Senior Chemist (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – August 31, 2012
Best position I ever had and a true career. After merger with Coastal (TGP), environment changed and destroyed teamwork that always existed. Politics began the norm (east vs west) with new management - sad situation from a once great place to work!

EPNG was taken over today by Kinder Morgan. Layoffs are expected everywhere. All of the perks that EPNG had will be gone in 30 days, as Kinder morgan strips EPNG down to the bones. Check the Kinder Morgan website for proof of their taking over EPNG. God have mercy on the employes of both outfits.

We were the in house ad agency and everyday was something new. One of the best things I liked was working directly for the VP of Communications and Community Relations. He and I bounced ideas off each other and it was a good experience. One of the hard parts of the job included being to only graphic designer for the company made for a fast pace.
The most enjoyable part over all would be the variety of projects.
Cross Functional Technician (Former Employee) – Agawam, MA – May 9, 2012
I worked for the northeast division of El Paso Corporation (Tennessee Gas Pipeline) and was a very happy employee. Job definition and security are excellent and everyone works as a team member. I left only to move with my wife to a warmer climate in Arizona.
Excellent company to work for. Room for advancement. Worked independently , you were trained on your job and not micro managed. They had confidence that you were there to work. You had your responsibilities and they expected you to do them.
