    Pros

    Very health place to work. LOTS of opportunity with the split from Shell!!

    I have been working at Motiva Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, awesome benefits, and even better people. Every day is a new challenge that requires focus, good communication, and safety must be a priority. There is ample room for development and moving up the ladder.

    Cons

    Working holidays and missing out on family events is part of it, but you can usually work things out to your liking. The job is dangerous and requires alot of trust in your team as well as a high level of responsibility and respect within yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with the families of employees. Annual picnic would be great. When it was Texaco they used to take families out on a party boat and even send flowers to the wives of their employees. Treat employees like family and theyll do the same. As far as management.....keep doing what youre doing and we'll keep breaking records together as a team.

    I have been working at Motiva Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary in line with industry, lots of opportunity to build resume, performance is recognized and well-monitored, typically interesting roles, friendly people and good work-life balance

    Cons

    Constant turmoil/change leaves little time to build job-related competencies - forever putting out fires, advancement is questionable, uncertainty for future because of split from shell, poor systems makes it feel like you have one hand tied behind your back

    Advice to Management

    Acquire more refineries and allow the systems issues to settle out

    I worked at Motiva Enterprises (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great position. Learned a lot in project controls. Manageable workload. 9/80 schedule was great as well.

    Cons

    Bad management. The person that is in lead positions has more authority than manager. Doesn't address the bad apple in the group who is rude and disrespectful

    I have been working at Motiva Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay to an extent, has so much potential to be an amazing work place with the right kind management.

    Cons

    No Balance between work and home. I hardly ever see my children. Get repremanded for calling in sick just one day with a doctors excuse. Very unfair work Balance. Many hourly bust thier bottoms working hard with a large work load. Salary personnel hardly do anything but meetings and come and go as they please. Hourly personnel get written up if 1min. Late! Salary personnel are hardly ever reprimanded while hourly are constantly under witch hunting. Management do not care whatsoever. Just care for personal life and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better management, rather than hiring friends or family. Hire management with lab experience who will stay longer than 4yrs to make a difference rather than trying to make themselves look good and moving on. Stop hiring salary personnel when the place obviously needs more hourly technicians who actually do the work.

    I have been working at Motiva Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits that come within having a career in the oil and gas field. I work with a some great operators.

    Cons

    Work life balance. Pay seems less than our competitors. Our terminal was sold to Saudi Aramco so now I guess I technically work for them? Still up in the air after the big "split".

    Advice to Management

    Pay the little guys who produce the goods more.
