Pros

Chevron values employee work life balance, work place safety, encourages community involvement and offers opportunities for personal and professional development. The Chevron Way and the mantra, "do it right or not at all," ensure projects are thoughtfully pursued and employees don't feel pressured to "cut corners."

Cons

Departments may determine what development/training opportunities are availble to employees and unfortunately, many departments have very tight budgets which limits training opportunities that may cost $.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage management and employees to embrace The Chevron Way every day and not only when it's convenient. Recognize the "worker bees" and not just those who work on high profile projects. Encourage team building.

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

    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
