Pros

The culture of the company and the people you work with make this company a great place to work for. The company tries to meet your needs personally and at work. The compensation is also to be better of then the competitors. I believe this this is a great company to work for.

Cons

If you are a business major, it is hard to advance. It may be difficult to change departments within the company. If you are a finance major, try to stay out of the accounting department. Although this is a great starting department, it is hard to move up or out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to give younger employees a chance to shine in the company for better opportunities within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we need to use CPDEP appropriately. Maybe a CPDEP lite should be developed.

    Pros

    Chevron is a great company with many different areas of operations. We are in the oil and gas industry, but we still are still a huge international organization, so even if you're not an engineer, we still have positions for you!

    Over the course of your career, you'll get to learn many different things both about the oil and gas industry and also just about your current position and skills. Chevron promotes trainings in all types of skills needed in order to do your job to the best of your abilities.

    Since Chevron is such a large organization, there are many different job opportunities in many different parts of the world. This creates a sense of having multiple careers with the same company!

    Chevron has VERY flexible schedules. First off, most employees in most areas work a 9/80 schedule. This means that you work 9 hours / day Mon - Thurs, 8 hours on Friday, and then every other Friday you have off!

    For the most part, there is no set time that you need to be "at work." For the most part, the unspoken rule is to show up by 9:00 am...but if you are not able to and you show up at 10:00 am, as long as you work your full 9 hours, no one cares when you come in (unless you have morning meetings...of course).

    Cons

    Since Chevron is such a big company, there are a lot of politics in terms of raises, salaries, promotions, etc. Your peers are rated against you and that's how management determines if you will get a raise or not. So...if everyone in your team is great at what they do and so are you...you might not get as big of a raise simply because you don't stand out as much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less money on your meals and do not just purchase items simply you "can."
