    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work on a lot of projects you wouldn't get to at larger companies. You get to have a large impact.

    Cons

    Because we are smaller, sometimes during the year workloads can get to be a little heavy. However, you also get to work on high level projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have the opportunity to influence many lives.

    I have been working at CITGO part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    the management is very well established; the pay is too bad either. If your looking for part time summer job then this is for you.

    Cons

    Sometimes when people really drunk and your working the grave yard shift than customers can be a little harder to handle.

    I have been working at CITGO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good and the company does a lot socially both inside and outside of CITGO. I have never worked in a friendlier place.

    Cons

    Mangement is typical of Oil and Gas. There are too many layers and getting anything approved can be a challenge. If personal productivity is a big deal you may find this environment frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision.

    I have been working at CITGO for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Good life/work balance. Excellent benefits. Flex time. Excellent 401k matching. Great community involvement and social programs. Good training programs.

    Cons

    Some people get promoted and others get kept down. It doesn't have anything to do with work competency. There are people in the company with advanced degrees who are working beneath their skill levels. They try and try to change jobs within and nothing happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people grow. Give them a chance to be promoted. Don't hold them back.

    Pros

    Excellent asset base, world-class operations people, strong sales force and very sophisticated administrative staff and systems.

    The weight of Venezuelan politics has put any chance of growth on hold and continues to create problems in the market place.

    Sell CITGO as soon as possible.

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, competitive compensation, above average bonus, excellent opportunities to get involved in community events, quick way to get a bunch of experience if you have weekends free.

    Cons

    Only career growth path seems to be from operations to the planning dept, continual budget cuts and lean staffing drops morale and the quality of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell us or spend money fixing the place up.
