    Pros

    Stable work environment, great opportunities to get ahead if you show work commitment and innovation.

    Cons

    Company runs lean so you get a large variety of responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    Try to connect with and be more aware of the various responsibilities subordinates maintain. Make it easier to get promotions by being more straightforward and not inflate employee reviews

    I have been working at Valero Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and decent benefits. The opportunity to promote is still an option.

    Cons

    Valero does the bare minimum to keep employees. They used to pride themselves on being an industry leader. Now they seem to do just enough to get lost in the pack. They have killed the desire to go the extra mile.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they are your number one asset, and your employees might start to feel valued again. The current opinion is that the employees are just a nuisance to be endured. You reap what you sow.
