Pros

Chevron is a great place to work if you're an engineer. Pay is great, benefits are awesome, the 9/80 schedule provides a lot of flexibility (every other Friday off, but work 9 hours during the week and 8 hours on your Friday on). They treat everyone fairly and are very big on diversity and safety. They are also strong proponents of work/life balance. You have just about an endless amount of sick time and entry level employees start out with 2 weeks of paid vacation, increasing by 1 week every 5 years.

Cons

I work in IT and while it is great company, they do not necessarily view IT employees as valued. In fact, IT employees are referred to as "non-technical" because only the engineering jobs are the "technical" jobs. Chevron pays well for IT jobs if you're freshly out of college, but once you have a few years of experience under your belt, it might be worthwhile to go somewhere else and get a bump in pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show more value in your employees who are not engineers and you might have better employee retention in the non-engineering disciplines.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for O&G experienced hires and people with a strong desire to succeed at a company that is in a critical and growing business line: energy.

    Cons

    There is a lot of reliance on 'old' deciion-making. Chevron hired a lot of experienced people, but the decisions all get made by 25-year+ people. Can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate feedback and ideas from experienced hire population into decision-making.

    Exceptional--Especially Compared to Others

    Pros

    Cutting edge technologies, combined with high performing and ethical culture, able and caring management and employees. The culture is of "nice" people and it shows. Tremendously inward and outward looking, with a goal of becoming the preferred energy company of choice. Corporate goal of exceeding expectations of everyone and every community with whom the company comes in contact. People are proud of the company and what we do and are concerned about the welfare of each other as if we are family.

    Cons

    Compensation for similar jobs is not adjusted for geographic differences in cost of living, which is good for some and not so good for others. Otherwise, hardly a bad thing or complaint to be heard around the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much I can tell them--they get it and are doing an outstadning job.
