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

Pros

There is a strong bond between the employees that makes the work environment generally enjoyable. The work is fast-paced to say the least. The growth experienced in the O&G industry in general has led to a boom in new projects, and Sunoco is no exception. You have ownership over your projects generally with limited oversight from management. Very little clock-watching or micro-managing from supervisors/managers.

Cons

Turn-over is pretty high for technicians and engineers due to the hot job market, and management hasn't responded adaquately to retain talent. There is a shortage of key positions in many groups, so individual workload can be overwhelming. Lack of established processes and training can be frustrating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people and pay them what the market is bearing. Take suggestions from working groups on process improvements and run with them. These changes have to come from the top down, not the bottom up. Get rid of out-dated software. Transition from Excel to more advanced database solutions for data management.

    Pros

    Growth-oriented. They don't take a lot of risks, and a majority of their acquisitions and organic growth pays off, which in turn contributes to higher success sharing and job security. There are a lot of opportunities for special projects.

    Cons

    There is room for advancement, but there's an unspoken "glass ceiling" above grades 7 or 8, in which people are selected from the inner circle. They know who they are and you end up knowing who they are, too. Management has shifted and now seem to be hiring people with less competence and experience as almost an assurance that they can better mold them into the sort of subordinate they desire. It's a little disheartening for those that appear to be "next in line," but might end up being "too good" for the promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the SXL of 2006 that hired qualified and smart individuals that could stand on their own two feet.
