    Pros

    Salaries for those that have Engineering degrees are good
    Benefits are still good

    Cons

    Value education over experience
    Looking to hire young college grads and terminate experienced employees

    Advice to Management

    Experience and actual knowledge of how things operate is more important than text book knowledge.
    Employees that have proven their abilities are better than college kids with no work history or experience.

    Pros

    Work with very bright people. Chevron Way. Ability to change careers without changing employers and losing benefits. Management very open and approachable (long way from years ago.)

    Cons

    Can be bureaucratic. Need to maintain staff and programs for the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over react to market swings. Stay the course

    Pros

    Comprehensive and good benefits (e.g. pension and 4:1 401(k) match). Interesting work, opportunity to make a difference when you take the initiative. A strong culture of doing the right thing and taking care of people.

    Cons

    Sometimes the org gets myopic, heavily discounting the value of experiences and methods used outside of its own boundaries or the oil and gas industry. Too risk adverse in areas where failure is not catastrophic. In resource extraction, transportation, and refining (how we make money) you can't afford one mistake. But in performance management, project management, planning methodology, etc., there is a lot that can be learned from others.

    Pros

    Great pay and 9/80 schedule. Great Benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Management is not accountable for their actions. Supervisors and Managers are usually on the global mobile list and only stay in one place for 2 years. The mistakes they make in two years, other have to be responsible for it. Must be willing to relocate every two years to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Hold Managers and supervisors accountable for their mistakes. First and second line leadership positions are usually given to development or high potential employees not the experienced employees that know how the business is run.

    Pros

    Hated working there and hated the people I worked with. Location also sucked. Life there was hell on earth. Never got better.

    Cons

    Crazy hours working there. No time to get all work done. Crazy expectations, no growth for me, didn't learn much.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Say thank you fly once. Term working with the team instead if criticizing others work. Do consider doing some actual workfor a change.
