I have been working at Chevron as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

People are laid-back and encourage working with one another. Not a job where you have to look over your shoulder. They definitely stress a work-life balance, and make sure you enjoy your job at the same time.

Cons

Huge company, so was involved in small-scale projects, versus working hands-on in multiple areas. They have a lot of different rules as well - such as not driving over 55, going through a maze just to get overtime approved, etc.

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

    Pros

    Friendly and fast-paced work environment, independence and responsibility given to summer interns. Overall a great experience (Engineering Intern). Company really cares about work-life balance, too.

    Cons

    No big negative things to say about my internship experience. Corporate culture can occasionally get in the way of progress/new ideas.

    I worked at Chevron full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Perks, and Bonuses

    Cons

    Management! Typical, Southern, "Good-Ole-Boy" Network! Admins, Executive Assistants, etc. are treated like sub-humans! Career growth for non-technical staff is nonexistent! ETC is THE most corrupt, unethical organization I have EVER encountered! If you do choose to go here, DO NOT (no matter what you are promised), work for ETC! Even technical and engineering professionals avoid this area of the business.

    Administrative professionals, go to Chevron for the perks; leave for a career outside of an admin function. Engineers, technical professionals, and EVERYONE else, AVOID ETC, Chevron's energy technology company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-vamp ETC; starting at the top! New leadership is pointless if the same behaviors continue year after year after year!
