    I have been working at NuStar Energy full-time

    Pros

    Company Culture is amazing. Employees are treated very highly. Tons of amazing benefits, better than any place I've ever been, by a long shot. Lots of giving back to the community. Very different working somewhere that employees love to work and have lots of pride in their company. The overall feel is very positive.

    Cons

    Strict dress code, and no beards. Not deal breakers by any means.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing everything you're doing. This company is amazing! Maybe consider easing up on the dress code a bit, and allowing beards. Even just not requiring ties would be greatly appreciated.
