Targa Resources-Better on Paper than in Actuality

Not recommended
Former FreelancerWorked at TARGA RESOURCES LLC in Houston, AL.

What I like

Parking or bus pass paid by company, a fairly casual dress code, importance of continued education

What I dislike

No work/life balance, lack of employee appreciation and perks, poor behavior and work habits of some seem to be overlooked causing discord

Suggestions for improvement

Offer flex time and/or the opportunity to telecommute; even if only 1-2 days per week. Show appreciation and empower your employees. Re-evaluate the amount of PTO offered. Stand by your mission statement and core values.

Teamwork

I had some great coworkers that were happy to answer questions, give direction with a thorough explanation, and even ask if I needed help when they had some spare time; while others would “throw you under the bus” at their first opportunity.

Work-Life Balance

There is no work/life balance. This question is almost comical.

Support from management

Non existent

Freedom to work independently

Micro management

Gender Equality

Still somewhat of a “good ol boys” mentality.

Office / Work Environment

I worked in a cubicle while employed at Targa, I’ve heard they have since moved locations and have gone to the currently popular “open concept” work stations.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is rather low compared to competition

Job Security

No such thing

Career Development

While furthering education via degree or certifications are appreciated, even pushed, there is not a lot cross-training or potential for promotion.


Company Culture

Internal Communication

Inclusive / Diverse

Attitude towards older colleagues

Environmental Friendliness

Handicapped Accessibility

Workplace Safety
