Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent with employees on the direction the company/department/their career is taking. Don't just spring weird job assignment moves on them.

    I worked at Chevron

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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