    Pros

    Great experience as a young engineer. Valero promotes high responsibility at an early age in your career.

    Cons

    Each refinery has its own culture and the company as a whole lacks a sense of uniform values. Very difficult to relocate among certain refineries. Several promotions seem to come from outside hires.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on developing your employees career instead of micromanaging. Need to adapt to millennial mentality in order to retain talented engineers.
