Targa Resources-Better on Paper than in Actuality
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.
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.
There is no work/life balance. This question is almost comical.
Support from management
Freedom to work independently
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
No such thing
While furthering education via degree or certifications are appreciated, even pushed, there is not a lot cross-training or potential for promotion.
