    Former Employee - Education Consultant/Trainer in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Sunoco

    Pros

    Fair Salary and Great Benefits

    Cons

    Totally demeaning, abusive, bullying environment. New upper management had to be advised by the lowest management on how to operate the business. Three levels of management were missing, so the lowest management ran the entire show. When I was encouraged to report my abuse, I followed the "abuse reporting protocol " as listed on their website, and I was fired within three weeks. Security followed me in their official car until I was two miles away from the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Four letter words and screaming at employees should not be the norm. Employees should not be fired for reporting vicious abuse.

    I worked at Sunoco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The physical work environment is good. The location is very conveniently located in the same building of the main train stop for center city so you can take the train in and then are able to get to work without ever going outside.

    Cons

    Managers sometimes play favorites. There isn't that much overall opportunity for advancement because departments are small and aren't that many people that leave they just stay for the long haul and are stuck in their ways of doing things. This means not a lot of opportunity for advancement. There is no formal business related training so little opportunity for individual growth and not much opportunity for outside training (meaning going to or bringing in experts).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more innovative and more progressive in your approach to management and leadership.
