I have been working at Chevron full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

9/80 flexible schedule, one of the few companies still with a pension, strong procedural guidelines for a multitude of process

Cons

Procedural guidelines for every single process. Very hierarchical, I couldn't just email my VP with an idea. Very function oriented, a Finance person couldn't go and do sales mid-career and then do business development and back to Finance, so in that sense you're pigeon holed. Ironically, the company leaders flaunt their "diverse" company experiences.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let workers pursue other development tracts otherwise when all the baby boomers retire you'll be in for a world of hurt
