Ergonomics and people programs are real and not just someone going through the motions
Tenants of Operation are part of everyday work and fully endorsed by management
1st class atmosphere to work in

Cons

CPDEP process can drag out projects.
Normal big company standards and procedures

    Current Employee - Information Technology in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Good culture, opportunities for advancement, generous benefits and pension, good work/life balance if you want it, very stable job

    Cons

    Slow to change, follower - not a leader - in information technology, lots of unnecessary process and red tape, analysis by paralysis, not an IT innovator, difficult to attract highest qualified IT professionals due to slow pace and conservative outlook

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you always go for 80/20, you lose out differentiating your business by skipping the last 20%. Until the IT department ceases to be a cost center, we are service providers, so let's call it by its real name.
