    Pros

    Fantastic Benefits, world class safety culture, numerous growth opportunities both within Operating Companies and globally, diversity of colleagues, Chevron Way attitudes

    Cons

    Being a very large corporation, sometimes there is a feeling of disconnect between the Operating Companies. Different human resources policies from location to location - it should be more uniform

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be given proper and adequate training for any and all new positions that they are hired for or moved into.

    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.

    Pros

    Had a great work life balance. Worked with a very talented staff. The benefits were comparable to other companies in the industry.

    Cons

    The legacy Texaco staff review process for staff ranking is ridged. Coddling young staff while letting experienced staff languish in grade for years.
