    A Great Place to Work

    Human Resources Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsCITGO is very fast paced fun and rewarding company. CITGO is good at treating their employees in a valuable manner. The company is diversed having people from different nationalities. They emphazise the importance of team work. They value discipline and management style is flexible, proactive, efficient and respectful. Understanding their employees needs. Training is an important part of the company strategies. Work time is very flexible. Multiculturalism is present everyday making working at CITGO nice and interesting. They encourage Social responsibility as an important part of the company values

    Talented, older workforce thriving in a highly regulated industry

    Operations Process Engineer (Current Employee) Lemont, IL

    ProsRelaxed 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.

    ConsOnly 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 Senior ManagementSell us or spend money fixing the place up.
