    I have been working at Valero Energy full-time (more than 3 years)


    Extremely talented team
    Exposure to muultiple business domains and technologies
    Relatively less office politics
    Community focussed with strong streak of social responsibility
    Amazing fitness center and well ness center


    Teams are highly optimized and lean. Loss of any team member can increase burden on rest of the team.
    Highly orthodox work environment. Dress code is strictly enforced. Jeans is a luxury

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to earn extra week of vacation should be reduced from 5 to 3 years
    Further relax the dress policy. Allow jeans on Fridays.

    Positive Outlook

It focused on team work and behavioral solutions. I had an offer within a week. I appreciated that they knew what they were looking for in an intern.
