    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Extensive training for new hires
    Work life balance highly stressed
    compensation and benefits on par or better than similar companies
    company culture and employees are supportive and generally very friendly
    management is there to help you

    Cons

    Extremely large fortune 500 company, sometimes you feel lost within the organization or don't know where to find things that are buried within the organization
    minor things are stressed to the point that you find yourself spending lots of work time not doing work but instead taking care of company mandates and whatnot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cut back on excess programs that dont actually contribute to an increase to profit.
    make training more clearcut and try to trim back on bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance! 9/80 work schedule allows the employees to pursue various personal interests over 3-day weekends every other week.

    Also, pursuing advanced education is strongly supported by providing 75% tuition reimbursement for taking classes while working full-time.

    Due to its extensive global presence, there are numerous opportunities to work overseas if one desires.

    You can "switch" careers within the company without quitting by internally posting for open positions.

    Cons

    So-so pay.

    Because so many people at Chevron are "lifers" (e.g. average length of employment within its IT company is over 20 years!), it takes a lot of years to really advance upward in your career ladder.

    Although part-time school education is strongly supported, leaving the company for a full-time program (i.e. full-time MBA) would seem out of place here since not many people do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's really great to see that life outside of work is valued at Chevron. I think this focus on work/life balance will be key to continuing to be successful for Chevron. Happy employees are the best employees.
