I worked at Chevron as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

An excellent place to complete an internship. Very focused on safety. Would gladly return if I had more summers left to intern, but I will be graduating in Spring 2013.

Cons

The refinery is in Richmond, which is usually in the Top 10 of most crime-filled cities in the US every year. It sits on the very edge though and away from the town, but it's pretty close.

    I worked at Chevron as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is full of employees with a high aptitude, great attitude and committed to helping teammates succeed. My experience twice as an intern and once as a contractor were always top notch.

    Cons

    Depending on the position, may require some international travel away from family. If you're single it's the life. They take good care of you when you travel. If you have a family it can be hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing your best to keep employees in the loop when change is occurring.

    I worked at Chevron as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Chevron provides all the tools an employee needs to succeed. They cater to Contract Employees which is good if you only enjoy working contract jobs. It's a great place also if you are into varied hours to work and if you like working remotely.

    Cons

    Some managers are less proactive when it comes to contractors in their group.

    Advice to Management

    Become more proactive with regards to contractor's concerns within a particular team. Contractors are temporarily involved in an organization however depending on their contracting experience they can bring a lot of good ideas for team building. Remember, contractors are eager to please so use the opinions and input.
