Pros

Good initial pay, year end bonus and benefits. Culture of safety. Great work/life balance (alternative work schedules). Lots of training. Opportunity to move around the company and travel internationally. Overall, I very much enjoyed my time at Chevron. They really do care about all of their employees and want them to be happy. Work hours are modest compared to the big 4 or any other professional services companies. At the same time, initial pay is higher.

Cons

After interning and talking to a lot of people I'm not confident that they promote the most qualified people. It seems as if a lot of promotions are based on tenure. Unlike the Big 4 and other firms where career tracks are drawn out up front and the time lines are set (but can be shortened by great performance), there is NO information given on what you can do to expedite promotions. There is also very little information on raises and how competitive pay would be 5 or ? years out of college.

Advice to Management

Give more clarity on career advancement possibilities.

    Pros

    Good balance between work/life. For most employees there is a 9/80 work schedule available which gives you every other Friday off. Chevron offers a large variety of different job opportunities that you can find within the company or one of the wholly owned subsidery companies.

    Cons

    For finance/accounting professions the base pay could be higher. The pay is comparable to other energy companies but not necessarily to other industries like public accounting or commercial/investment banking. Also Chevron is very beurocratic, its hard to move more then one pay scale above your current level at any given time and you usually have to spend 18 months in a position before you can try and 'post' to a higher level job,

    Advice to Management

    Do not follow the 'pay scale' so ridgidly when promoting high performing employees.

    Chevron is a good company to work for but base pay needs to be more competitive

    Pros

    learning opportunities (advanced excel, access, programming classes)
    on the job training
    free language training
    opportunities for advancement
    good benefits (401k quad match, pension, medical, dental, annual bonus)

    Cons

    average compensation (base)
    everything else met or exceeded my expectations

    Advice to Management

    Raise base pay in order to retain talent. There are other companies out there paying more for the same type of job/position and same level of experience. Giving an average or below average base salary does not seem to be keeping in line with the "pay is competitive with other major employers looking to retain high caliber talent" statement that is on the company web site.
