- DCP Midstream20.Jun 2018
Management talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk. The dollar rules this company, not the management.
Support from management
Most first line managers are hourly guys who got promoted by default. No direction or training to get them where they need to be. Causes low morale among the ranks.
Collaboration is a word the DCP uses in employee meetings. Not one that it implements into it's psyche.
All the working force are men. All the HR office jobs are women. It all balances out, doesn't it?
Attitude towards older colleagues
Company Philosophy: These guys have the most vacation and the most pay. Why don't we find a reason to replace them with someone younger and cheaper?
You're on your own.
Overall compensation for your work
Lower than average pay for similar midstream companies.
Office / Work Environment
Cubical village in the offices and extreme temperature both directions where the rubber meets the road.
We only self-report environmental issues because its the law. People make great jokes about the lesser prairie chicken where we have invaded their habitat.
Your work is your life. Live with it.
Good in Denver where the corporate office is, but very lackluster in the field locations. DCP has been referred to by producers as the "Company of last choice" to sell gas to.
At will employment is exactly that. If they don't feel like developing you, you're out.
We don't care what happens to employees as long as it doesn't make the OSHA log. We will gladly pay workers comp, but by all means (including lying) don't let it get onto the OSHA log.
It's a challenge to keep people engaged when the assets they work in are shrinking instead of growing, while competitors all around you are growing exponentially.
