    I worked at Sunoco Logistics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Corporate accounting department in Sugarland as a consultant and found middle management approachable, laid-back and comfortable to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is not so great but benefits are good enough to compensate that if you are interested to lean more towards that.

    I have been working at Sunoco Logistics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    respectable company with aggressive growth plan and employees that primarily appreciate the company culture, vision, and management oversight

    Cons

    Work load can be overwhelming at times and challenging to work with others with team members with a multitude of priorities

    Advice to Management

    Work towards a fair career path with not just younger engineers but also senior engineers as it seems there is more opportunity to junior and middle level engineers

    Pros

    Good people to work with, good advancement opportunities. Rewarding compensation and benefits. Good safety culture. High Job security. I would recommend working here to anyone looking for a nice company to settle in.

    Cons

    There are good times as well as challenging times everywhere, it's up to you to find out where your talent best fits in, then work your way towards your career goals. The sky is your limit, make everyday count and don't spend too much time on the negatives.

    Pros

    I worked as an intern and they pay was GREAT for an intern. They also allow interns to invest in their 401K with company matching which is HUGE. Extensive project involvement. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Communication from HR to interns wasn't the best. Didn't put a lot of pride into the internship program as a whole. Didn't offer interns full-time positions b/c there weren't any available.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your interns

    I have been working at Sunoco Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities, a lot of different scenarios and different domains to develop experience in. Compensation is towards the low end in the industry but the annual bonus is good. Also there is a constant annual increase in pay every year. So, overall a good place to work in. Great health insurance with PPO plans including the famous 90-10 plan.

    Cons

    Working long hours especially Fridays are common with deadlines to get the pipelines up and running before weekends. Too much politics behind the scenes. Hardly any vertical moves possible but lateral moves are encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good bonus and good work :) companies should include Share Options.

    I worked at Sunoco Logistics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Positions are more generalists than specialists which affords you broad exposure to many disciplines outside of your own, which makes you very attractive to competitors.

    Cons

    A healthy work/life balance is difficult to achieve for most professional/management positions if you're a conscientious worker.

    I worked at Sunoco Logistics full-time

    Pros

    SXL was a growth company, so you were always active and busy with new projects. They manage well and have a good structure. Good dedication to integrity and incident free operation. Continues to produce results and make money.

    Cons

    Lean operations often puts a lot of stress on employees. Much of the field staff is over worked and under supported. Long hours often go unrewarded, especially for salaried staff. Limited locations.

    I have been working at Sunoco Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a strong bond between the employees that makes the work environment generally enjoyable. The work is fast-paced to say the least. The growth experienced in the O&G industry in general has led to a boom in new projects, and Sunoco is no exception. You have ownership over your projects generally with limited oversight from management. Very little clock-watching or micro-managing from supervisors/managers.

    Cons

    Turn-over is pretty high for technicians and engineers due to the hot job market, and management hasn't responded adaquately to retain talent. There is a shortage of key positions in many groups, so individual workload can be overwhelming. Lack of established processes and training can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and pay them what the market is bearing. Take suggestions from working groups on process improvements and run with them. These changes have to come from the top down, not the bottom up. Get rid of out-dated software. Transition from Excel to more advanced database solutions for data management.

    Pros

    Co workers are very helpful and mostly caring. Everyday is a new challenge. Company is still growing...lots of new plans and changes ahead. Great pay!

    Cons

    Management can be some what clue less. Strict reaction to PHMSA Regulation changes. Lots of rumors going around about the future with ETP buying the company. Management proved very little update to quel rumors.
