Morale in tank in TX

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsTexas Gas Service is part of ONEOK and you get decent benefits.
ONEOK in Oklahoma seems pretty stable, TX business unit tanking
Work hours in some areas of company are 8-5
Employee stock share program

ConsManagement and long-time employees were slashed and burned in last 6 months. New TGS management is even worse, but ONEOK Exec. team in OK does not know and does not care that great employees are jumping ship as a result. Micromanagement to a soul-crushing, disempowering degree. Torturous new time-consuming processes for field and engineering to get projects approved. Have implemented rules such as no talking to co-workers, reviewing times for entering and exiting building (for salaried employees), daily log of every email and call made to make sure employees are "really" working. Rules are necessary, but it had become more of a prison-style, toxic atmosphere than a productive, respectful workplace.

Advice to Senior ManagementCEO gives major lip service to "employee development" but on the state utility level in Texas, there is no such thing. You can't wipe your behind without asking for permission, much less go to a training or work development trip that could further growth. Advice: Stop the flow of great employees out the door by getting the TGS management from president on down to service center management in check...maybe listen to actual employees' feedback (service specifically). The ship is sinking-try to rectify it now or lose tons of marketshare to electric. Even HR is being browbeaten by new local management for hiring "bad" employees--but the robotic new management has no idea how to motivate and empower their new teams. Make local leadership care about employees or show them the door.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
