    I worked at Chevron full-time (more than 5 years)


    Lots of opportunity if you're willing to stay in Bakersfield or go to Houston. If you're willing to work hard you can rise in pay and standing fairly quickly. Good culture of everyday respect amongst peers, unless you decide to leave the company for a competitor (see cons and advice below).


    Extreme variability in how the company's values are interpreted by different business units. HR policies are not consistent across groups. San Joaquin Valley Business Unit makes up its own rules on how to deal with employees who leave for competitors. You are released the same day you give notice if you are headed to a competitor, so beware all the relationships you have built will be severed instantly. Plan ahead and say goodbye beforehand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The San Joaquin Valley Business Unit is run in a very unethical way by mid and upper management. I was treated with nothing but respect by other business units at Chevron across my several years with the company. Since Bakersfield is a such a terrible place to live, the management who decided to bring their families there and stay long-term feel very bitter inside to those who do not wish to do the same. My advice would be to be open-minded to those whose personal needs take them elsewhere.
