Pros
Cons
  • 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 (in 9 reviews)

  • No work life balance and the culture doesn't not allow you to be very innovative unless you try to break those barriers (in 3 reviews)

    I worked at Tesoro Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The amenities are great. On-site gym, cafeteria, coffee shop, doctors office, and UPS site. The Company is definitely growing.

    Cons

    Re-org is constant. No one ever knows when they're going to be moved from floor to floor or who they're going to be answering to next. There has been a lot of turnover recently as well. Many people are over worked and the Company seems to be taking on more than it can handle.

    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

    Good company good benefits good place to learn happening technology.
    Good cafeteria, good recruiters who can get people from across US to believe this is the place to be

    Cons

    If you are a Tex Mex you will be promoted and can sit high in the hirerachy. After the employees relocate with families buy a home and settle down the issues start.

    Advice to Management

    Just because we are in Texas, any TexMex doesn't become superior to all other employees and gets promoted. Please start validating merit for promotions not the cultural background
