    Pros

    If you're lazy or dysfuntional like the people below. Please, go somewhere else. If you're a type A and want to kick some tail with others like you, then this is your place. Don't take my word for it, ask why the average CST employees has been here over 15 years. 30 to 35 year veterans are common and appreciated. It's an environment where safety, quality and employee well-being come first. New ideas are welcome. As with any new management team (going on three years now), the house had to be cleaned otherwise progress cannot be made. CST's safety record is impeccable. Some plants have over 4 years and no lost time accidents. Employees at each plant get $100 for each year every they have no recordables. One plant gave away $400 per person this year in cash! Just for being safe. As for career opportunities, they are frequent. I have seen multiple promotions in my 4 years. It seems there is at least one every month where someone is advancing. As for management layers, there are basically two between the lowest level and the president, who is passionate, always friendly and actually cares about the employees; willing to talk to anyone at anytime. Arrogance has no place here.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the few rule breakers have required a tight reign. But as the bad seeds have been removed, so the work environment has improved. This will only continue to get better. Also be forewarned, CST is a lean company, so everyone must pull their weight. Yes, occassionaly you will need to work a weekend or evening. Sometimes the work just needs to get done. Imagine that, a company with people that still work hard. Regardless your managers will be right there with you in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the people below get you down. Every one of them was given a chance to improve and chose not to. Stay focused on the objective, which is to make a great company even better and an even better place to work.
