    Pros

    Some coworkers like to have work hard and have fun. There is a good work life balance here at Chevron. There is a lot of opportunities to change your interests.

    Cons

    The company is really big so things might take a little longer than you would expect. Big change takes a lot of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show interest in your employees.

    Pros

    competitive salary, great work/life balance, amazing benefits. The culture is also amazing, everyone is more honest and open than most companies.

    Cons

    Slow moving when it comes to promotions and technology. When the latest iPhone drops you will still be two generations behind. Windows 10 preview just came out? They still use Windows 7. It is very frustrating when you are a technologist.

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and good pay.

    Cons

    Large number of bureaucratic management in place who are adverse to thinking outside the box, they just want to check the box and move on. Don't have an opinion unless you are a senior manager, manager that knows a lot of people or someone who is a top performer or you will get pigeon holed and you will have no career. The company (ITC) is NOT committed to its employees; going layoffs every 2-4 years and outsourcing IT jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop protecting Upstream and hiding their mistakes (see Gorgon and Wheatstone) by laying off employees in the other OPCO's (ITC). Hold the people who made those decisions accountable!

    The best place I've ever worked

    Current Employee - Program Controller in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Program Controller in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Chevron as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Tone from the top is ethical and inclusive. The work is challenging, the people I work with are great, and my supervisor is one of the best I've worked for and work-life balance is amazing. Contractors are treated with respect, opinions are valued and we are not treated as less because we are not a full-time employee.

    Cons

    I have no cons other than I'm a contractor instead of a full-time employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, Chevron is the best place I've ever worked in my 20+ years of being in the workforce as both a contractor and full-time employee.

    Pros

    Great benefits, work-life balance. A very structured organization with focus on teamwork and safety of its employees.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company, promotions are difficult unless you travel over seas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting employees based on merit and previous experience (with other companies) instead of promoting those who are willing to travel and gain experience only with Chevron.
