    I worked at Chevron Information Technology as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Environment is great with friendly people

    Cons

    pigeon holed into a job and not really allowed to have a chance at other opportunities within company. I recommend converting contractors who have been there for a while to an employee position. They're doing something right in being there for a while, so they are due a FTE position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate talent better....make sure it is what they know and not who they knoFw.

    I worked at Chevron Information Technology as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They take care of their people. I was a contractor for 10 years and was treated as an employee. They are very concerned with safety, it is their number one priority for employees and contractors. They want the people who come to work each day to also return to their families each day.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of work, which is mostly good but sometimes overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you ask for honest feedback be prepared to hear honest feedback. Many people I know say what they think management wants to hear, rather than what they really think and want to say.

    Former Employee - IT Support Analyst in San Ramon, CA

    I worked at Chevron Information Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In general, Chevron has money to invest in you with training. There are many opportunities to learn about oil and gas if interested. High operational excellence and high ethics in the office. The office environment was very safe and it was encouraged to be safe in all aspects of the job. Ergonomics and preventing workplace injuries was highly emphasized. Was allowed to pursue other career building opportunities and seek training such as Toastmasters. Bonus at the end of the year. Alternate work schedules.

    Cons

    Sometimes working with people that have worked at the same company for 20 years makes them stale and they have stopped thinking of innovative ways to improve the business. The mindset is to allow other people (contractors, consultants) do the innovating and we just go on with the same old thing. I got really bored because I was a new employee and was not trusted with challenging work and could not be trusted without spending several years to prove myself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to get a metric for everything. Let people be creative and express their creative juices in a way that will improve the business. Not every thing has to be measured.

    Pros

    easy going environment with a caveat

    Old, digged in baby boomers who can't find a job anywhere else, egoistic, narrow minded, out of touch with reality and the technological advancements

    Get rid of the schmoozers and get genuine people..guess..as long as oil gushes out of the ground nothing matters
