    Pros

    Nice facilities, good work place

    Some of the3ir people are just pencil pushers and not really good at their job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better qualified Business Analyst and people that are micro managing their responsibilities; professionals do not need to be micro managed

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay, work culture, International focus/job opportunities and people development. Chevron's PDCs put a lot of effort into getting the right person, in the right job with the right skills at the right time.

    Cons

    Not very diverse in top positions in line jobs. (Support functions have diversity).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not let cost focus make us think we can shrink to greatness. Now is the time to go shopping for more assets but this will take some appetite for risk.

    I worked at Chevron

    Pros

    I don't know what the Houston office is like, but the San Ramon office was incredibly warm and supportive of employees. The work/life balance was also phenomenal; people worked hard while they were there (9/80 schedule) and left at an appropriate stopping point when the day was over.

    Cons

    San Ramon is for relatively senior employees or otherwise non-technical roles. It's hard to get your foot in the door there.
