    Pros

    Great understanding of refinement process. Friendly workplace. A lot of commitment. Great training offers and compensation. Company values hard work and respect

    Cons

    Very secluded area. Not much to do. Not that many perks or promotions. Going to be stuck in the middle of no where.

    Pros

    Not many pros to working here. The pay is decent if you can stand working all day with inept management in all levels and all departments of the organization. The actual refinery personnel seem competent but higher level personnel in their office locations are truly lacking in professionalism and knowledge.

    Cons

    The mid and upper management in their Sugar Land office and Kansas City office fight and argue non-stop over work assignments and who will do what. This really affects morale but the management doesn't care. The particular manager I worked for was extremely rude and incompetent with zero business acumen. The HR, Finance and IT departments are all pretty clueless when it comes to operating in an effective and efficient manner. You are expected to work VERY long days with no appreciation whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at some of the higher paid office staff and the value that they are actually providing. Deep cuts could be made with minimal impact to operations.

    Pros

    Employees at the the refinery facilities are dedicated and friendly.
    Users want and need assistance with process improvements

    Cons

    Management has little interest in implementing changes identified by business users.
    Management sees the use of lean six sigma or agile or process mapping or any other tool as unneeded and unnecessary.
    Current, state of the art, project management is a week-by-week chart on the white board.

    Advice to Management

    Actually hire and support project management professionals with knowledgeable management

    They do a good job at California. overall friendly staff and you'll click to them . they produce some software that allowed the dealer to interact with DMV and do vehicle-related tasks such as registering a new card, transferring title, etc.

    Cons

    they don't do that well in other states off-shoring some times go beyond non-sense. meetings are rather lengthy for the subject at hand.
