      Leadership turnover and inconsistent accountability

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Overall work life balance is good. Pay/benefits are good for employees but contractors are overpaid

      Cons

      Constant leadership changes from Canada. Low ceiling for advancement unless you are Canadian or one of the chosen. High performers are over promoted. Unqualified internal candidates are put in leadership roles over much higher qualified external ones. Leads to lack of leadership knowledge and bench strength

      Bureaucratic, HR processes take too long, improving work life balance but still requires improvement, lack of diversity, too much work - not enough time. Very little potential for upward movement for US citizens.

      Changes are needed with Turnaround Group and Maintenance Department

      Aug 22, 2014 - Maintenance Technician in Commerce City, CO

      Pros

      "Safety first" is stressed at all levels. Good pay and benefits. If you are in the right department with good leadership, you can expand your knowledge and experience tremendously.

      Cons

      Too many managers at US refinery(mainly Canadian), still voice the safety first motto, but push production before all else. Little concern over working people long hours or under adverse conditions. Safety incidents are not reported or falsified to ensure manager bonuses. Starting to fade from the work/life balance, and expectiing folks to work longer hours. Promotion and hiring of unqualified or incompotent leaders, becuase they don't question authority and have low moral value.
