Great opportunities until Kinder took over. I saw a lot of great people leaving the company. Great Location downtown, the bus routes are just outside the front door....if you like riding the bus to work. Monthly buss fares only partly subsidized.

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.
Sr O&M Planner (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs - Nation Wide – October 25, 2012
12 hr days including some weekends. Was able to build strong interpersonal skills while training and coaching employees. Developed strong situational skills. Worked with management and subordinates to achieve company goals. The hardest part of the job was taking multiple opinions and views and alligning them with each other. The best part of the job, working in a team environment while coaching and training other employees.

Here I gained skills in document management and pipeline drafting. Management was great here and so were my co-workers. Very helpful indeed. The hardest part of this job was leaving due to the company's relocation to Houston.
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!
I enjoyed working at El Paso and with the team of people in the group.
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.
