I have been working at Chevron full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The organization is truly committed to a great set of corporate values, particularly around health, safety, and ethical business practices. They permeate every program and are embedded in the everyday culture of employees here.

Cons

We have an interesting dynamic. Although it's rapidly changing business climate, and quick responses are needed, the high-dollar risks entailed mean we must use a complex decision evaluation and execution process, with huge amounts of collaboration. This can be frustrating to some who want more independence or speed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue your emphasis on supporting employee and leadership development.

    I worked at Chevron full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good training and lots of opportunity to see different operations around the world, good expat packages in most locations

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy, slow decisions and a reluctance of letting young engineers take on more responsibility. Management jobs are just enforcing policies rather than meaningful work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your younger people as they will learn faster with hands on experience making decisions.
