    It is an awesome company with wonderful benefits.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompensation, benefits, focus on safety, community involvement, family oriented events, were some very good reasons to work at NuStar Energy.

    Great Summer Internship

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsIntelligent and friendly managers who truly care about interns' career development and take the time to share their knowledge and advice with them; interns are entrusted with substantive, meaningful assignments; well-organized company that is at the forefront of the pipeline industry

    ConsThe office is located in a rather remote area (far northwest); since the company is not huge, departments are not always able to extend permanent employment offers to interns

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up your familial, supportive nature!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    NuStar is a stellar workplace!

    Manager (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsAt NuStar, you feel like you're part of a family, versus a number. The management team works hard to take care of the employees by providing great benefits and compensation. While we've had a tough couple of years financially, we still received bonuses and merit increases, which says a lot about the commitment to employees.

    ConsWe've had a tough couple of years, but management has refocused the company on our core business, pipelines and terminals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep listening to the employees and making NuStar an even better company to work for.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    NuStar Energy, A Shinning Star in The Industry.

    I/S Specialist (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsVery Professional Atmosphere mixed with relaxed low pressure environment. Employees are trusted, and empowerment is visible through the company. A great sense of pride is visible in every department, great sense of respect from peers and managers. Great pay and benefits, bonus, stock options, it makes a difference when acompany is trying to be the best.

    ConsNuStar is still small company in comparison, but still growing after spin off from Valero, The roots are strong and some employees need to get over the spin off from Valero. Although its nice to volunteer to help others, its seem like it’s a job requirement, If you don’t pledge to volunteer or donate to the United Way, you feel like you job would be at stake.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare information on salary grade, publish salary ranges. Be more open, Salary ranges/earning potential shouldn’t be a secret.

    Don't be so head strong in the volunteer arena, employees feel like it’s a condition of employment, your using your employees to support you own ideals.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
