    I have been working at CITGO full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, 9/80 work schedule

    Cons

    There is no development, learning or real training opportunities. The nepotism is absurd. Undeserving Venezuelan employees are consistently promoted or hired for positions they are unqualified for. The company has no long term strategy, vision or competitive advantage. Every decision is based on the short term and how to best benefit Venezuela. There are no real growth strategies or plans which means it's only a matter...

    Advice to Management

    Try to come up with a plan for something beyond the next 12 months. Change is inevitably going to disrupt the industry and you've done nothing to prepare.

    Former Employee - Process Operator in Sulphur, LA

    I worked at CITGO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Off 7 days in a row once a month, lots of opportunity for improvement and moving up

    Cons

    Hope you get along with your shift and/or unit. That will make or break anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Over, it's a great place with many opportunities. The downside is that it's a large corporation and runs very similar to the military. If or when they make a decision on something; it is final. It's unfortunate but, this company will never admit any type of guilt, even after the court rules in favor of the employee. There is definitely a "buddy system" there. So stay in the loop and everything will be just fine.
