    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Information Technology in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Information Technology in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (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.

    Pros

    Great benefits and the company goes out of its way to make sure its employees are safe. There is good work-life balance and you're encouraged to maintain both your physical and mental health.

    Cons

    As an employee of a very large oil and gas firm, you will be subject to the stigma of working for an 'evil industry'. Though there's not much action being taken on climate change (their products, after all do contribute to global warming), the company does a great job maintaining the local environments where they operate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
