I have been working at Valero Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Valero provides an excellent working environment for employees, complete with on-site childcare, doctor, cafeteria, and a fitness center with tennis and basketball courts, and running trails. The company offers a leading employee compensation plan that includes excellent medical coverage options, along with a pension and 401k, among other things.

Cons

I know there are disgruntled employees who work here, but I struggle to understand it. It is not the place it was in 2005 when the stock price was soaring and splitting, but this is still a top of the line place to work. The best I can do to complain is to say that the upward mobility takes time. Even then, part of the reason for that is due to the fact that most employees choose not to leave, and this inhibits other people from potential promotions, transfers, etc.
