    I have been working at Tesoro Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Decent pay but could be higher to account for cost of living
    - 9/80 schedule for engineers
    - Yearly bonuses and raises

    Cons

    - Some of the culture can be like college, but I assume all companies are like this. More outgoing and popular employees are seen as favorable at times
    - Simple straight time pay for 12 hour shift work (when approved)

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to employee satisfaction through regular check-ins. Motivated employees are key, and management provides motivation.

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, commitment with local community, growing company with ambitious acquisitions, large enough to get the feeling of belonging to a corporation while nimble enough to allow employees to contribute and make a difference. Empowerment to employees

    Cons

    None, other than a growing company will have a lot of change, if people don't like change then maybe not the right company for you

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job and growing a solid portfolio

    I worked at Tesoro Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    paid time off, tuition assistance, 401k, limited medical, dental and vision, sick pay, in an industry that typically doesn't have those types of things for their CSAs.

    Cons

    sometimes too many chiefs and not enough indians. many of the things we had to do were redundant policy wise, but when you have a lot of overlapping upper management jobs, you get that. sets for coolers, etc, was based off of sales in southern california, which caused a lot of missed profit due to regional tastes not being considered (i.e. what were popular products in so. cal was not popular in norcal, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    get back into the retail business! you guys really were great to work for, and the quality of appreciation you gave to your employees was and is unparalleled in this industry.

    San Antonio based, which can actually be a positive - low cost, good standard of living.

    Pros

    A good company to work for, they're trying to care and develop employees. Benefits and pay are good; they seem to want to keep good employees.

    Cons

    A lot of growing pains; they're making acquisitions and getting into new industries. Definitely a big corporation feel. They want all of their work to fit into the same box.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, easily the best that I have had with any company. You get sick leave and a personal holiday day.

    Cons

    Poor communication, also it is a huge company so you are just a number. Very little power to change or make decisions on the lower rungs
