    I have been working at Tesoro Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tesoro is one of San Antonio's best kept secret. I have worked here for a few years now and it has grown substantually. It is a great company with solid benefits and pay not to mention a great campus. The company is changing and the culture is also changing for the positive. One of the best things I like about the company is the senior leadership and their goal to be the best and drive a high performing culture. If you want a place where you can work and bring yourself to work everyday then this is the place for you. The message coming down is the company needs leaders and is asking people to step up because the company is growing.

    Cons

    This is unique to everyone, the con is a positive and has to do with the extensive growth that the company has gone through. There is a lot of change and those that join the company need to be ok with change.

    Advice to Management

    Tesoro does so many great things in the community and people really dont hear about it. It would be great to showcase what is done as it is exciting to see as it brings more pride to the employees.

    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.

    I worked at Tesoro Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good. The building is very nice. The location is good for many commuters. The landscaping is nice. They have a good salad bar.

    Cons

    I am amazed by the positive comments I read, as this is not the reality of what I hear from current employees. I have been gone from the company for less than five years, and what I consistently hear is that employee morale has gotten worse. If you are looking for an employer who focuses on teams, employee well being, and supporting its employees, then this company is not what will make you happy long term. Please remember that positive comments may be the result of HR looking for internal current employees who they know will help pad the ratings. This is just a thought on my part. I felt it is important to speak up though as ratings do not match reality.

    Advice to Management

    Management could have such a different approach regarding employees, and could really make TSO a positive place to work if they wanted to. However, price and profit are the bottom line. The philosophy is that you are paid well, so if you don't like how they operate, then move on. They will fill your job with someone else. Is there any wonder that TSO always has so many job openings? Yes, the company is on a growth curve, but there is also a darker side to the attitude about employees that keeps spots constantly open.
