Good Place for a Long-term Career

Human Resources Analyst (Current Employee)
San Ramon, CA

ProsThis is a very good company that is very sucessful. It is a company with excellent benefits and often employees work for many years if not for their entire career. It is not unusual to hear of parents and granparents being former employees. It is a "process" oriented company, definitely engineering driven. There is a strong comittment to safety and doing business the right way. Very professional environment (San Ramon headquarters)

ConsIt is a very big company and one can feel like a number. In recent years they practice a lot of "off-shoring of jobs" which is unfortunate.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough this is a "global" company, this is an American company and Americans are good workers too!!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Houston, TX

    I have been working at Chevron as a contractor for less than a year


    Pros: None as far as I can see. Cons: Worst Management folks. They spy on you, never trust you to do anything right. I got the worst ever manager ever that one can think… Advice to Senior Management: Get a life and treat contractors like professionals and not like your slaves. Grow up and don't… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
