    I worked at Chevron as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Chevron is a huge company that is doing well. The future of the company is in shale gas, so there's huge potential for growth, even for a company that is already huge. They have a lot of resources, therefore compensation is very good. They even have a pension program too. Interns were also allowed to contribute to a 401K but they never told us how to set that up. Best part about Chevron is their 9-80 program, so you work 80 hours in 9 days, as opposed to 10 days, and you get every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Safety is very important to the Chevron culture, which they call it the Chevron Way. And it should be, especially out on the rigs and oil platforms, though it trickles into the office environment too. So for example, you are to anonymously report someone, at least once a month, if they are doing something unsafe, such as not holding the railings on the escalator. If you are typing too much on your computer, it will lock up for 5 minutes and force you to take a break. While that is all great for ergonomic reason, it does present a Big Brother mentality.

    In addition, big oil is big oil. Any interests on renewable energy developments will label you as someone who's values and interests do not align with Chevron's. So if you are interested in renewables and corporate responsibility, just keep it to yourself.
