I worked at Valero Energy full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Shrewd business people, razor sharp on costs.

Cons

Hypocrisy by management; the pressure was always on to cut costs at the operational sites yet Corporate had no expense spared eg 3 private jets, Ranch for entertaining etc.

Current Employee - Human Resources Specialist

Pros

Great people to work with

Cons

work/life balance and benefits are just ok
