    Great intern program, but definitely not a software company

    I worked at Valero Energy as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great intern program, pay, and atmosphere. The intern program was well setup and built so that you have a fair chance at getting a full time job, and, if nothing else, helps you learn how a corporate environment works.

    Cons

    Since I was doing an information technology internship I learned very quickly that they're an energy company first and foremost, Most of the software that's dealt with is old. They have tons of legacy code, and the bureaucracy is much like any other company as large as Valero is.

    I worked at Valero Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits! That's pretty much it as far as good things about this facility. There isnt much that is good about the way the employees are treated.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. Horrible local and corporate management! HR dept. manager and employees are unfriendly, they do NOT have the back of any employee who goes to them for advice or assistance.They throw employees under the bus for information that was told to them in confidence and help the corporate management come up with bogus information to retaliate and set up employees to charge them with suspension and possible termination. Supervisors are hired because they are friends of somebody in management (its not what, but who, you know or whos butt you kiss that matters). The favoritism that is shown by management is so completely blatant its unbelievable. You are forced to donate money to United Way and to volunteer at a Valero approved event.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and punishing the employees who are good workers and letting the bad employees get away with murder. Stop setting up good employees and making stuff up to punish them and padding your own pockets in the process.
