    Human Energy

    HES Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat upward mobility for mid-career level employees. It sounds odd, but the Company's heart is in the right place when it comes to energy extraction. The host nation benefits enormously monetarily and humanitarianly.

    Cons"Open Office" is miserable and stagnates productivity. Each office is not void of the usual politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess is more sometimes when it comes to processes including safety processes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great company with lots of benefits. They still offer a pension.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsChevron will provide lots of career development and allow you to go as far up the chain as you can.

    They have flex work schedules . Work 40 hours in 9 days.

    ConsLots of processes to follow .
    Competition with other employees is fierce. You have to do everything perfect, on time, on budget and always. Pay raises are based on comparative ranking with other employees. Even if you perform 100%, if another employee delivers 110%, then you will not get the raise. The 110% performance then becomes the new benchmark to beat.

    Every action is worthy of analyzing to improve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer free food.

    Independently owned are better

    Cashier (Current Employee) Huntsville, AL

    ProsEasy enough job where you can learn a lot about running a business and time management. Plus most the time they are willing to be flexible with there schedule should something come up.

    ConsSlow days where there aren't a lot of people really coming in. Another major problem is drunks coming for beer.

    Great place to work

    Facilities Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsLots of opportunity to work on big capital projects. Each person has alot of room for advancement at their pace according to ability. Good work / life balance emphasized by my supervisors and managers. Everyon's safety is a priority in all things done both in the office and in the field. Great retirement plan although it is alittle less great for newer employees starting out now, at lease it is stable and solvent. Medial plans available are better than many places.

    ConsYou are stuck awhile if you get a bad supervisor. Less flexibility being an employee versus a contractor employee.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
