Great place to work, when it was EPNG
Senior Chemist (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXAugust 31, 2012

poor management after merger

The Place to Work
Sr. Business Process Analyst/Security Admin (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 25, 2012
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.

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.
Pros

Cons
now kinder morgan, next month just a carcus in the trashpile

Associate Accountant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 22, 2014
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.

Senior Graphic Designer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 21, 2012
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.
Pros
flex hours
Cons
the commute
