    Pros

    The pay is in line with other Oil and Gas companies
    Benefits are very good

    Downsizing over the last 3 years has gotten rid of most of the workers but has kept unsustainable levels of very expensive layers of management.
    The company has completely lost its focus on safety

    Pros

    This is a wholesome organization that values employees and desires to do the right thing in all circumstances. Employees that share these core values, put in the effort and are mobile (not mandatory) will have career opportunities. With a turnover rate less than 2%, people get in and stay for the long haul. As awarded, this is one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    The locations can be limiting if your preferred living environment is large urban cities. The work arrangements are not progressive. That is not a statement on diversity. Simply stated, there is a philosophy that the teams need to be in the office working together, not from the couch at home.

    Advice to Management

    The culture and values have kept the company grounded and successful 100+yrs. Doing the right thing is just....right and timeless.

    Pros

    Much Better than Average Pay

    Cons

    No Flexible work schedule 7am to 3:30pm - but expect to stay until at least 5pm. No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Join the 20th Century (not sure you are ready for 21st) and realize that people have lives outside the refinery - cannot keep good folks with big paychecks indefinitely.
