    I worked at Chevron

    Pros

    Above average pay, challenging work environment, practice and applicable skills gained here. I adored my regular customers. And many of my former co-workers are life long friends.

    Cons

    Hard fast paced work with little reward. Corporate big wigs constantly making regulations and new procedures from their comfy chairs expecting one person to do the job of 5.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you're second shift right and you'll always have everything taking care of. Don't neglect them.

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

    Pros

    Chevron 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.

    Cons

    Lots 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 ManagementAdvice

    Offer free food.

    Pros

    Easy 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.

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    Lots 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.

    Cons

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