    Cons

    Have not identified any yet.

    I worked at CVR full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay compared to other competitors for this type of job function (majorly to attract people until they last).

    Cons

    Pathetic IT leadership/management. No maturity in decision making process - lack of leadership skills and people management especially in ETRM IT area. Verbal abuse at work place is a common thing that you can't even challenge with HR. Zero transparency.

    I have been working at CVR

    Pros

    None under the current and previous management.

    Cons

    Underhanded management. Poor equipment maintenance and trashy trucks that are run 24/7. Terrible rotating schedule with horrible work life balance. 90% of their employees are worried about losing their job if they make one wrong decision, extreme atmosphere of CYA.
