    Pros

    The top reason for working at Chevron Shipping is probably visibility, which will help you to land satisfactorily into your next position. Also, from a technical perspective, some very interesting tools are made available to you, which can be quite rewarding in terms of adding to one's experience and knowledge. There is no doubt that the company has been able to assemble a large group of very qualified professionals, with which it is very nice to interact on a daily basis. There is frequent mobility amongst those professionals, which propitiates good exchange of experience and information - most managing positions are given to individuals already within the company.

    Cons

    Excessive workload and too many meetings. Little room is left for individual decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more room for the professionals within the company to make decisions: they have experience enough!

    Pros

    An ownership company, which values it's values and mission statement more than profits. Take care about it's employee. A very good company who can adapt to the system and plan for a life long career.

    Cons

    Some times following the rules by the book does not work in practical life. Persons who have adopted to this environment would find it difficult to work in another company, if circumstances arises

    Pros

    A company which takes care of its employees, and focuses a lot on the safety aspect.
    Could be because, to save itself from litigation's

    Cons

    Too much paperwork to do a simple job. Overdoes the safety thing. Quality of life on board ships can be better

    Pros

    Safety work ethics played a big part in making sure we got back home in one piece, There was also a mind set that gave us confidence in the company and made it easier to focus on the job at hand

    Cons

    Way too much paper work. I'm sure there are simpler and more efficient ways to ensure operations are carried out safely and correctly. There is a lot of tension caused mainly due to the paper work, more so than due to the actual operation
