    Great corporate culture and fantastic management team that are willing to take their time and share their knowledge!

    Intern (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsYou have flexible hours, great pay, and great benefits. I started a summer internship this May and from the beginning have enjoyed working with the team, the HR staff, and have learned much from upper management. They care much about their culture, values, and even promote their core values and guiding principles very strongly. Their training, buddy/mentor, and new-comer programs are very well coordinated. Along with their new rotation program, internship program, and others. They even have goal setting exercises, assessments, reviews, and meetings to improve rapport. It may be hard work and a lot of work, but someone willing to work for the company would be a great fit. One hard worker who would be willing to spend their day with other great employees would enjoy even a single day there. They're always ready to help you grow as an individual as well as a part of the team and Tesoro Corporation as a whole. This is a great place to work, to grow, and to learn from great leadership.

    ConsIt may take a while to move up the ladder, and interns may be paid at different rates based on their duties, but that's how it is. You're getting the real world experience. As an intern, the only benefit you get is holiday pay and time and a half overtime - but that's understandable. Other cons would be the problems with computer and program breakdowns, but the IT staff there is great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would consider offering interns better, more competitive benefits as they will be the new generation to help the company grow - new minds, new ideas.

    The IT department lacks leadership which spill over into inefficiencies and failures that facilitates blame

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsThe company is growing and the overall temperature is decent. Tesoro has some strategic leaders in it's core operation. The company pays well, especially in the San Antonio market. Tesoro's leadership at the C-Level has vision that should continue to grow the organization. The company values well developed and advertised. Campus is nice.

    ConsLeadership within the IT department is still learning on the job. There is a lack of leadership, experience and a sense of arrogance from within the IT VP team that permeates throughout the organization as distasteful, immature and incompetent. This is very evident as there has been at least three re-organizations within the past three years.
    Policies are lacking and not followed. The enterprise architecture runs the organization, making decisions for the VP as they try to understand the next trend through payed research resources and Google. Many within IT try to move into other departments because it is a good company, but your not in good company within IT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire experienced individuals to rebuild and operate the business. Truly re-organize by rebuilding the leadership team. Invest on your internal talent and trust their experience and contributions.
    Your strategies group is strategically misaligned with the business and IT.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior Managementwe are non-union yet upper management fosters non-loyalty and makes people want to go union by constantly cutting benefits and making talented, hard working people look for other employment.
