regions are territorial, not people friendly in the regions, some regions not cooperative or trustworthy of corporate or their initiatives, industries served are hard hit by recessionary cycles and oil price volitility causes greater risks to be taken at the same gross profit

run the company for what is best for the whole not individual regions, better develop the people you have, add resources or support timely where managers need them, focus on the top line, reward honesty

    I worked at Maxum Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    Fun industry with lots of perks. Employees care greatly about the work and the customers.

    Cons

    Each operating unit has very limited access to the corporate HQ. It left employees feeling disconnected. Benefits were downgraded -however that could have also been a sign of the times with the economy.

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with the operating units.

    I worked at Maxum Petroleum full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The customers were great other than that nothing

    Cons

    Upper management is a joke, lying cheats who care only about the selfs. Cut back Cut back is all they say but upper management go on non needed business trips to strip joints up in Wash. and have the company pay for it and laugh about it. This is only one example many more wont even mention the Panama so called business trips.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all upper management
