Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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.

Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I worked at TOTAL

Pros

Very nice building, cafeteria and facilities. Access to all sports facilities even as a contractor. Nice atmosphere and good team spirit.

Cons

Not much work given (as an summer temp worker). Although this was in the summer months, so a lot of people were on vacation.
