    I have been working at Valero Energy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    San Antonio is a better place to live than Houston

    Cons

    They work their Supply department thin, to the bone, with no suitable backups. No such thing as Vacation, days off, Holidays or weekends. Family takes a back seat to Work; Promotions based on who you know or where you went to school (A&M, OU) rather than accomplishments. Intern program is especially corrupt, as most Internships are handed out to children of VPs.
