    Pros

    People. At the same level or below, fellow employees are wonderful to work with and professional.
    Decent compensation and health benefits for the position

    Cons

    Being a woman, the challenges double in every aspect. Passed up for promotion, paid less than my fellow male peers, treated like my opinion/knowledge doesn't matter. They also like to play favorites. I've seen store managers lose their job over a $5 payout while another manager commits a crime and still has a job. Most of management bases their decisions on "personal" perspectives and "favorites" than the actual credentials a person has for any open position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no amount of advice that I could give that would improve how this company is handled.

    Pros

    Good Starting Salary and Benefits

    Cons

    Extremely demotivating and consistent harassment. Within the first 45 seconds they changed my position from corporate trainer to personal assistant. No proper chain of command. Top three executive positions were vacant leaving unqualified personnel complete run of the division. Abusive obscenities is their motivational style.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Three weeks after reporting the abuse, harassment and bullying under the "Sunoco Report Harassment" section of their website, I was dismissed. Get a Clue !!

    Get off the sinking ship, Lynn is taking the company down. Will Sunoco survive on hot-dogs, sodas and imported gas?

    I have been working at Sunoco

    Pros

    Good benefits, but employees are constantly reminded that management plans to eliminate some benefits in the future to save money.

    Cons

    Morale is extremely low and has gotten worse over the past few years. Very depressing work place.
    Employees are openly looking for new jobs outside of the company, including managers telling their reportables that they want out and are looking.
    Uncertainty at all times in all aspects.
    Never ending lay-offs.
    Employees are not valued and are told to just be happy they have a job, year after year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Earn back the respect of employees.
