    Very reasonable and openly communicative company to work for.

    Former Employee - Analyst in Houston, TX (US)
    Former Employee - Analyst in Houston, TX (US)

    I worked at Targa full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Middle management personnel were very insightful and would often go the extra mile to help.
    Strong group of young analysts who challenge each other and existing, antiquated processes
    Office environment fairly laid back

    Cons

    Analyst Program not really what I was lead to believe it would be
    Very few actual mentors that can bridge the gap from analysts to managers
    Few meaningful opportunities exist that offer cross functional training opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define what the Analyst Program is really designed to accomplish. Don't mislead potential recruits by spinning it as something that it isn't.

    Not great but not bad

    Former Employee - Accountant in Houston, TX (US)
    Former Employee - Accountant in Houston, TX (US)

    I worked at Targa as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot as this is a very lean company as far as staffing goes intentionally. It allows for people to get a lot of exposure to different areas very early.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are not in tune with the younger employees they are bringing in. Some managers are certainly better than others for certain, but there are managers who treat younger employees as worker bees to give them information so that they can take all the credit for it and not give credit to those responsible for finding and compiling it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start moving out your older managers. They discourage younger people from coming and staying as they are highly resistant to changes that could be positive if they could require them to change the way they do things. Don't let managers be inefficient because its comfortable.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, fair compensation

    The new analyst development program needs to be more organized. Inter-department should have more communication.

    I have been working at Targa

    Pros

    Small company so plenty of opportunites to learn.

    Cons

    People hoard knowledge and work. Culture is under developed and carries a lot of bitternes from their dynegy days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on teambuilding and less on finger pointing. Help people work together instead of against each other.
