    I worked at Tesoro Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good bonus and salary. Most employees dedicated and knowledgeable. Plenty of opportunity to add value and contribute to improvement. Easy to be a standout if you are willing to challenge.

    Cons

    Poor management and weak HR. Management would rather hide most problems rather than fix them. Very political the higher up it goes. HR does nothing with employee complaints about poor managers. Large turnover in employees due to this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the political dog and pony stuff and do the right things as suggested by dedicated lower level employees. There is room for great improvement in project management but they keep losing good PM's because of poor management.

    I have been working at Tesoro Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tesoro has a very good CEO, who has the vision and the ability to drive and grow the company to new heights! The company has grown so much in past, that it can now withstand any tough times to come and still promise you with a good career. The IT organization has very good talented people to work with. Pay is in par with the industry.

    Cons

    IT department :

    IT lacks leadership. The upper management is inexperienced and lacks understanding and knowledge of business and technologies, because of which IT has no direction or proper plan to drive and produce much value. Still seen as a cost center. Management style is still reacting to business.

    Not having the right management, has made IT organization look like a puppet show, there are no leaders to give guidance and directions to resurrect it.

     No clear career path exist in IT while the rest of the organization has it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT still needs more clean up,.

    The new CIO will only be successful depending on how his subordinates are, so bring them as competent, with experience and knowledge.

    Above all, bring true leaders to leads this IT organization in every level

    Pros

    Tesoro has a good work culture with many kindhearted professionals. Leadership was very supportive in helping me learn my role and learn the resources available to me. Many people were willing to work with me and teach me.
