    Pros

    Great Company culture. Very competitive pay. Excellent benefits (bonus program, 8% 401k stock matching program, health care, PENSION, etc.). Lots of opportunities to move around the company. I'm consistently amazed at how many people have worked 30+ years here. That's a testament to the Company. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's a large company so things can be very bureaucratic and move slowly. Also, with so many long term employees, you get some complacency and you don't benefit from people having experience at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out some of the bureaucracy, be more proactive at letting go of low performers, hire more mid-career employees who bring non-Chevron experience

    I worked at Chevron

    Pros

    Chevron is a challenging work environment. There are a lot of very talented and motivated people that care about the success of the project.

    Cons

    No cons to report, it was a pleasure working at the refinery. Safety was always a priority, and it gave a lot of confidence in the people turning the wrenches.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, safety as a value goes a long way in the work going on. Schedule and productivity follows.

    Pros

    Benefits, flexible work schedule, compensation, exciting work

    Cons

    Office politics, too many layers of management,

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job, however there are too many layers... My advice would be to flatten the organization and reduce the amount of time technical people need to spend on administrative tasks

    Pros

    Awesome benefits! Great Pay! Great opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of room for promotion unless you have a degree or you know people

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to really know your people and treat them as people and not a part of a machine.

    Pros

    Team culture encourages collaboration; good compensation and benefits, especially if employed for long time; variety of work available if you want it; opportunity to travel. Good emphasis on work-life balance.

    Cons

    Slow moving at times when dealing with changes in business environment, especially in downturns in oil and gas, which results in agonizingly slow deliberations. Many managers don't always "Walk the Talk".

    Advice to Management

    They need to better understand how technical people work and that they aren't off-the-shelf commodities that are interchangeable or easily acquired.
