    Pros

    Slow growth, but a very stable company with exceptional benefits. There is a high focus on safety and you can enjoy great work/life balance. Rotation to different roles happen regularly.

    Cons

    Responsibilities could be pushed down to lower levels to make the job more rewarding. It is a huge organization and hirearchial.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the diversity at Chevron as I am from a minority group-they were very accepting for me. I resigned because of personal reasons but Chevron is a good place to work.

    Cons

    It is a bit hard and hectic at times-lot of work and long hours but the pay is good

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the wonderful job you are doing but try to promote more employee interaction.

    High pay and great benefits, and promising future, as long as you're willing to move to Houston.

    Pros

    #1 pro = High, competitive pay. Great benefits. 401k match. Flexible hours. Can work from home occasionally if the nature of your job allows it. 9/80 work schedule (every other Friday off). Performance management and reviews are, for the most part, fair and generous as long as you're a top performer. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Even with a flexible schedule, expect to work lots of overtime/weekends, especially during busy project seasons. Lots of favoritism happens in every work group. Random layoffs/reorgs, even more so now that most jobs/functions are moving to Houston, Texas. Must be willing to relocate to get the best job opportunities/promotions.

    Pros

    Overall, Chevron is a nice, comfortable place to work. Some pros:
    1. Work/ life balance is great. Employees have every other Friday off, in most groups the hours are reasonable and employees are generally not expected to work on weekends.
    2. Compensation - employees are well compensated with a very generous 401k match as well as a pension plan. Salaries tend to be similar or slightly higher than the average in the Bay Area.
    3. Culture - I have yet to work with someone that I really dislike at Chevron. Employees are nice and care about each other.

    Cons

    As a large company, there can be quite a bit of bureaucracy. As everyone is so nice, there is a focus on consensus which increases the time for decisions to be made. Managing the politics of engaging all stakeholders and avoiding conflict can be exhausting and lead to inefficiency.
