    I worked at Sunoco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great and I was given a lot of responsibility. Definitely learned more here than with other oil refiners. Some of that had to do with it being a lean organization following the lay offs. Love the location of Philadelphia.

    Cons

    There was a disconnect between the refineries and upper management. This made sense since they eventually sold off or shut down all of the refineries. Busy periods would lead to long hours and this was sometimes quite unpredictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company mission was talked about yet it did not ever seem to come to fruition.
