      I worked at HollyFrontier Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good people who are from WY

      Cons

      Management will not support employees, thus employees do not support management. HR controlled by corporate, watch your back

      Advice to Management

      Get your heads out of the numbers and get to know your people. Find out whose doing all the work and reward them. Not just your buddies

      I have been working at HollyFrontier Corporation full-time

      Pros

      Good pay and great benefits

      Cons

      A portion of company leadership is knowledgeable about their specific areas of responsibility, but lack skills required to successfully lead the organization. There is a lot of talk about collaboration, but the reality is that focus and efforts are confined to each department, with little thought given to the overall impact on the organization. Many people looking after their individual interests and taking shortcuts...

      Advice to Management

      Lead by example, delegate responsibilities and hold yourself, and others, accountable for walking the talk and meeting performance objectives. Accept that being a SME does not automatically translate into being a great leader and that you have to first acknowledge an area of weakness before you can work to strengthen it. Weaknesses have the potential to become strengths, but can easily become liabilities if they are...

      Neutral Outlook

      I have been working at HollyFrontier Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Excellent pay. Fair amount of time off Good perks for living close by to plant. Good bit of diversity among employees

      Cons

      Management seems short sighted and seems to claim losses as wins. Management says they want input but don't really want it. Shift work.

      Advice to Management

      Start listening to employees.

      I worked at HollyFrontier Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Lots of good people that want to be more than just average.

      Cons

      A bunch of good people in Dallas...they need to get out of Dallas and actually talk to the employees that are putting very large checks in their banks. They are good people, they just are out of touch with what is really going on in the field. They are also stuck in the way we have always done it and are afraid to take the transformational steps to be a "premier refining" organization as stated in their mission statement.

      Advice to Management

      Stop hosting a family and start running a business. If you keep relying on the luck of the market your luck will run out someday and you will have a different name on your check...if you are still part of the company.

      I worked at HollyFrontier Corporation full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Every other Friday off! Excellent location, Parking garage plays classical music. Microscopic stress levels. Vendors will perform all critical tasks for you, Great career if you can drink the vapid kool-aid.

      Cons

      The IT culture is one that purchases software due to a lack of technical understanding. There are no Open Souce products in the company, like Bind9. The System Architect role is a glorified GUI admin, no understanding of the command line or serious automation. However, this is understandable as there is only about 1500 knowledge works other skilled workers have a small need for local IT services. There is also little...

      I would suggest looking for work at Manging a Burger King or McDonald's, technology is not your thing.
