    I have been working at Valero Energy

    Pros

    People, culture, benefits, continuing education and facilities. Hours are great and a lot of flexibility with regards to people with families.

    Cons

    Promotions are based more on time as opposed to performance based. Opportunities to move up are limited, most people end up making a lot of lateral moves to learn something new.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider bonus for attaining CPA. Allow greater flexibility for promotion based on performance as opposed to time
