Enbridge had an oil line near Kalamazoo, MI, which spilled 1,000,000 gallons+ of oil before they realized it. I do not consider a company with an environmental disaster in the last year to be "risk free", if anything their governance at some level is lax or non-existent. Bad risk profile to have oil pipes bursting where you don't realize it.
the success of the company...until somebody decides you are NOT. When things get tough, top performers are replaced with mediocrity, to save $$$$. That is how VLO rewards loyalty.
Never heard of any of them except Valero and they make their money gouging us on gas prices.
Ever wonder how this ends? Apparently, our jobs were sent overseas because the hired-in executives determined that it was more important to pay themselves well, than to have assets and a workforce. That, of course, backfired on them but wasn't enough to get them fired or arrested. By 2015, it will cost more to import than to run indigenously. The jobs don't return. Robots and automation replace us AND executives who don't have omnipotent credentials (gods). Both the customer base and economy will be gone and most seniors will be rich from investing in our demise, not our rise. We already know that the jobs of progress (not recoverY) won't be filled because the textbooks teaching these skills haven't been written yet because the fields don't exist yet. In short, within 5 years is total catastrophic failure. WHY are we doing this?
This government is failing and soon it WILL fall will you be ready for the chaos that comes?
I'll keep my trust in God. Man will fail you every time.
This is only as per Wall Streets rules. What about other factors, like staff relations, community relations, environment, etc. How many of these guys appear in '100 Best places to work' and what is the ranking?
Pretty biased stats!
United we stand, divided we fall... Uhm... what happened to that??? Just imagine... all this written by a GIRL! Have a nice day ;-?
I am not going to read the article because I learned everything I need to know from the picture; Valero is featured prominently. That would be the same Valero that is a major backer of the KXL pipeline, the one bisecting our country to carry the dirtiest crude oil in the world, in pipes that have been proven to be substandard in construction, across our aquifers, rivers and farmland to benefit not the US, (unless imminent environmental disaster is a benefit) but to get the oil to their refinery on the TX coast where they can process it and send it to Canada's overseas customers. BTW, Canada doesn't want a pipeline across their country to their own refineries on their west coast. They even turned down a free one offered by the Chinese. Go figger.
Here's a clue: they have not earned anyone's trust.
Not on the list: New York City's "Robertson's Restoration & Painting"
