    I have been working at Chevron as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule permits every three-day weekend every second week.

    Cons

    The work environment (IT) is unbelievably sterile. Employees barely acknowledge each other; the lack of personal contact in the offices is depressing. I have worked as a consultant and employee in many locations for other organizations, and this is the first time I endured such an oppressive atmosphere.
    There is little opportunity to exercise independent judgement and discretion - everything is process-driven and requires approval from multiple layers of management - communication by PowerPoint.
    While workplace safety is obviously a critical issue in an oil company, the company's obsession with it extends to every nook and cranny of it's operations - offices have safety instructions posted by the break-room toaster, employees will tell you to sit up straighter in your chair to be ergonomic, and the Wellnomics software installed on each computer force you to take to breaks, convenient or otherwise. Although the goals are laudable, there is a very heavy tone of "big brother" in the office.
    Their IT environment is far behind the curve: new laptops are now issued with Win 7, an upgrade from Vista enterprise (!), albeit with outdated IE. Their enterprise systems are mostly older versions. This was mostly humorous, except when one considers that it is hardly a resume-enhancing experience.
    I really found my time there very unrewarding, I'm glad that I moved on.
