Mixed feelings during internship. Very bad after-taste due to unprofessional behavior of my manager.

I worked at Chevron

Pros

Good work-life balance. (Some) exceptional leaders & managers.

Cons

Blatant favoritism to "legacy" kids regardless of their actual ability and performance - and there are many such examples. Very disheartening.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People leave their jobs because of their managers, so please do a good job when selecting your managers. There are those few managers who leave much to be desired and behave vengefully and childishly after an employee has chosen to resign / decline an offer of employment. As we know, employees, past and present, spread the word about these issues, and this reflects horribly on Chevron. Get rid of the bad apples before they ruin the entire company.

    Pros

    good work/life balance, good job security
    many god mentors for young employees
    management values people
    good culture
    a broad project profiles allowing you to work on many different projects

    Cons

    too many processes
    sometimes Chevron Way behavior is used as an excuse to whack down people
    not willing to let employee try different tasks. If you are good at one area, you might need to work on that area for very long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage emplyoee to try different areas and expose them to a wide variety of projects in a shorter time. Sometimes management is not willing to release employees to their next assignment

    I have been working at Chevron

    Pros

    excellent mentorship, great career progression potential depending on job function, company has great reputation globally and many employees have worked there for a long time.

    Cons

    salary not competitive as BP or exxon but work life balance is greatly stressed and much better than exxon mobil. Work can be a little redundant as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fast track careers of MBA's because they are the future of the company. Global MBA development program should be more dynamic
