    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.

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

    Pros

    Employees are the number one asset, industry leading benefits and an atmosphere consisting of respect and teamwork. The company is very community minded and encourages employees to give back through volunteerism and serving on non-profit boards.

    Cons

    Hard to promote, as upper management are young and happy to work there. At times, work stagnates. It is difficult to embrace new technology.

    Advice to Management

    Assistance with job growth and career advancement would be helpful to keep people.

    I worked at NuStar Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    pay was there every week.

    Cons

    benefits got worse and more expensive. this company shames their employees into contributing to united way. you are frowned upon if you do not contribute or contribute a certain percentage. 3% is expected of everyone. the linden nj facility is a joke. its run by harassing and bullying management. over 10 employees who worked at this facility for over 25 years, prior to nustar owning it, have been forced out or fired for minimal reasons. age discrimination. management has gone as far as badmouthing and giving bad reviews for these former employees in a effort to keep them unemployed. these are the kinds of people that run nustar. the baltimore facility was just as bad. dont let the goody goody reviews fool you. this company is hardly worthy of accolades or a title a best company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    try treating your employees like human beings. they put their pants on the same way as you do every morning. you are no better than no one
