      Inept & Indecisive leadership

      Pros

      Great benefits and competitive compensation to other oil & gas refineries.

      Cons

      Terrible leadership! The Memphis refinery management lacks field experience & ability to make tough business decisions. Mid level supervision & craftsmen are worked in circles due to the poor leadership. Work life balance is non existent. If you want to achieve success & promotion, you will be expected to work 7 days a week & long hours. Your family must come 2nd to the big V! Higher performers will be pushed to their breaking limits while low performers are allowed/accepted for poor performance. The only reward for being a high performer is the ability to do someone else’s job that does not meet expectations.
