    Pros

    Great Place to work. Open to new ideas, very organized and excellent salaries and benefits which I consider to be the best ones for a company of its size. Very employee-oriented.

    The company does not have much interest in growing. Not much training and career advancement for long term employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please innovate in technology and management style. Try to be more competitive

    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.

    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.

    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.
