Extremely BAD work culture.
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 18, 2018
Poor support staff (EHS, Quality, Engineering, etc.). You are by yourself. Extremely difficult to grow unless you have a sponsor or a buddy in the management. No credit to knowledge or education.

Operations team mostly comprise of high school graduates, no importance to advanced degree.

Most of the executive management is not aware of engineering or industry standards.

No formal training either in-house nor by third party training organizations.

No accountability nor any emphasis on maintaining employee development.
Pros
None
Cons
Work hours, no training.

E&C Technician IV (Current Employee) –  Topock, AZOctober 24, 2018
You have a lot of opportunity to advance if you are willing to relocate and be highly motivated and willing to work a lot of overtime and be subject to be on call 24/5

get busy dying....
COMPLIANCE ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Colorado SpringsSeptember 30, 2018
No training for employees, KM prefers to hire experience. No employee perks other than what is required by law. Company culture is to save money everywhere possible. Read almost any of the Forbes "what a workplace shouldn't be" type articles and realize that this is likely the place being written about.
Pros
Decent Pay
Cons
Company culture

Management was horrible
Operations Specialist III (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDSeptember 26, 2018
Kinder Morgan management was horrible. They want you to check in every fifteen minutes. If you do not follow the direct path that the management says then they will not like it and yell at you because you didn't follow exactly what they said to do.
Pros
benefits. paid time off
Cons

CAD Drafter (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 17, 2018

A Company where work is more important than family
Liquids Pipeline Controller (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 10, 2018
The Products Control Room is a shift worker's nightmare. It's unfortunate that the management of the products pipeline group continues to operate in a reactionary state rather than a proactive manner. If you love having your work schedule changed constantly, being pulled off of special projects because there is never a full staff, missing promotions because management is incompetent and doesn't staff properly, than this is the place for you. Otherwise, seek employment elsewhere.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Constantly understaffed, promotions are few and far between, managment is indifferent to the needs of employees, unbalanced work / personal time schedule

Work Schedule
Project Controls Specialist (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 9, 2018
The work itself is not difficult, but it is repetitive. Typical work cycle would be: 1st week of the month you are busy with deadlines, 2nd & 3rd weeks you are refreshing your work templates and updating data, and the 4th week of the month you are meeting with your project managers and updating forecasts.
Pros
Good pay and decent job security
Cons
Lack of advancement opportunities

Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 9, 2018
Worked at KM for several years and felt like years more than I actually was there. Lots of time spent working on nights and weekends & it was expected because others did so. No one else I worked with had children so they did not understand that sometimes you have to take time off and not be at work (nights, weekends, holidays, PTO). I am a strong believer in developing local talent, but KM likes to develop and promise pay bumps & keep stringing along the good workers. They like to reward to workers who may be good enough at there job, but if you bust your butt day in and day out you seem to be left out of the perks that come with being the same "orientation" as others you work with. I have never been the victim of reverse discrimination, but that was the last straw that pushed me to leave for a much better workplace...it wasn't hard to find one.
