    I worked at Tesoro Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Tesoro has a good work culture with many kindhearted professionals. Leadership was very supportive in helping me learn my role and learn the resources available to me. Many people were willing to work with me and teach me.

    Cons

    The company has grown a lot in recent years and is experiencing growing pains with outdated programs and techniques. They are trying to sync new systems and programs to run more efficiently.

    I have been working at Tesoro Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    You have flexible hours, great pay, and great benefits. I started a summer internship this May and from the beginning have enjoyed working with the team, the HR staff, and have learned much from upper management. They care much about their culture, values, and even promote their core values and guiding principles very strongly. Their training, buddy/mentor, and new-comer programs are very well coordinated. Along with their new rotation program, internship program, and others. They even have goal setting exercises, assessments, reviews, and meetings to improve rapport. It may be hard work and a lot of work, but someone willing to work for the company would be a great fit. One hard worker who would be willing to spend their day with other great employees would enjoy even a single day there. They're always ready to help you grow as an individual as well as a part of the team and Tesoro Corporation as a whole. This is a great place to work, to grow, and to learn from great leadership.

    Cons

    It may take a while to move up the ladder, and interns may be paid at different rates based on their duties, but that's how it is. You're getting the real world experience. As an intern, the only benefit you get is holiday pay and time and a half overtime - but that's understandable. Other cons would be the problems with computer and program breakdowns, but the IT staff there is great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would consider offering interns better, more competitive benefits as they will be the new generation to help the company grow - new minds, new ideas.

    Pros

    Policies and procedures are well documented. Teams work well together. Good work/Life balance. Nice gym that is complimentary to employees and a nice walk/run path. They promote wellness. They have a good bonus structure. Great cafeteria. It was a long interview process, but it was well worth going through it, knowing that they are thorough enough to make sure they're getting the right person for the job. The co-workers are all great to work with and helpful when working together.

    Cons

    Not many cons at this place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Employees consist of diverse age groups. Beautiful campus. Easy to approach and meet employees outside your unit. Great corporate culture. Amazing upper management.

    Cons

    Indeed, the campus is beautiful; however, it is far from the center of San Antonio. I want to live close to work but also close to all the fun and activities of the city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a great job.
