    Pros

    Generous 401k matching
    Option to work 9/80 schedule
    Good health and dental benefits
    Pension

    Cons

    Base pay is lower than many, if not most, other companies in the Bay Area. The benefits are much better than other companies I'm familiar with, but the pension and 401k don't help put food on the table today.

    Advice to Management

    Bring salaries up to be competitive with other companies. There seems to be fewer and fewer young people in the office - those I've talked to say that there are higher salaries working in San Francisco. The pension and 401k are great future benefits, but are only of limited help before retirement.

    Pros

    Company is sincere about values and commitment to health, safety, and environment as well as employee work-life balance. Benefits are very good and work environment is one of collaboration and mutual respect.

    Cons

    Engineering function is not very strong. Engineers without outside experience lack skills to make sound engineering decisions independently. Lack of experienced leaders results in slow and inefficient decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Continue efforts to standardize and align engineering requirements for subsea equipment with other operators and vendors to reduce organization capability constraints.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the diversity at Chevron as I am from a minority group-they were very accepting for me. I resigned because of personal reasons but Chevron is a good place to work.

    Cons

    It is a bit hard and hectic at times-lot of work and long hours but the pay is good

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the wonderful job you are doing but try to promote more employee interaction.

  8. Stable company that is extremely supportive of its employees but career progression moves slowly.

    Need to find more dynamic opportunities for development of younger staff working their way up

    Pros

    #1 pro = High, competitive pay. Great benefits. 401k match. Flexible hours. Can work from home occasionally if the nature of your job allows it. 9/80 work schedule (every other Friday off). Performance management and reviews are, for the most part, fair and generous as long as you're a top performer. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Even with a flexible schedule, expect to work lots of overtime/weekends, especially during busy project seasons. Lots of favoritism happens in every work group. Random layoffs/reorgs, even more so now that most jobs/functions are moving to Houston, Texas. Must be willing to relocate to get the best job opportunities/promotions.
