I have been working at Valero Energy

Pros

Is a very people oriented environment, most co-workers are friendly and easy to work with. Compensation and benefits are very good as compared to similar companies. Also not impossible to movie up the ladder if employee improves with time.

Cons

Like all places, many things can become political. People will always talk. At times job can become too repetitive and boring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the employees you supervise as much as possible when making decisions that directly impact them. Keep all employees informed about the current situation of the company good or bad.

    Pros

    Excellent, stable company. A strong sense of family in many areas. Giving back to the community is an important part of the culture. The work is challenging and rewarding, though this has slowed somewhat as Valero is no longer growing through acquisitions.

    Cons

    The company tends to run lean from a personnel standpoint. Too much work, and not enough people to do it. There are some downsides of being in a very mature industry. A very large company, but still run like a small one in many respects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bill Klesse is definitely the right person to be leading Valero at this time. Some areas of the company, like I/S, seem to be dying on the vine.

    I have been working at Valero Energy

    Pros

    Large company. Some benefits are good but management has changed policies without providing advance notice or fairly implmenting changes.

    Cons

    No longer a sense of community/team. Company has become politcal machine, 'it's who you know'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the IT managers.
