    The Religion of United Way

    Oct 1, 2022 - Pipeline Operator in San Antonio, TX

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Worked with some pretty cool people.

    Cons

    The company forced you to donate to the United way. If you did not comply they would take you in a room with all the big wigs and shame you into donating. My job was threatened. I already donated 10% to my own religion but they forced me to do at least 3%. If you did not donate the expected 6-10% you could expect to never be promoted.

    Great Benefits/Work Life Balance

    Jul 12, 2022 - Tax Accountant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits - NuStar pays for health-care premiums for you and your family Hours are almost always 40 a week. The exception is for spring busy season when they peak around 60 for a couple weeks. Tax Department is family oriented. Management provides significant flexibility for doctors appointments, WFH with sick kids, and taking time off.

    Cons

    Compensation is weighted heavily towards benefits, primarily health insurance. If you are single, or your spouse has great benefits, you may find the salary on the lower end. Advancement is limited because it is a small department and everyone loves their job.

    Pros

    Benefits are the biggest pro. Their work in the betterment of the community.

    Cons

    Horrible management! Directors allowed to go rogue against company’s positive culture. If you take your issues to Human Resources there will retaliation. The loyalty of the company is with their management regardless if management is clearly in the wrong.
