Pros

The People - very friendly, generally honest, and caring

The Experience - get a lot of experience in different areas/technologies in a short amount of time, great cross-discipline exposure, rotational assignments

Cons

California Politics - working for big oil in CA is hard, projects are canceled, uncertain company future in the state

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent with employees on the direction the company/department/their career is taking.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. 9/80 or 4/10 schedules are nice too.

    Cons

    Forced movement for new hires greatly impacts the company by removing key people in roles. Salary between San Ramon and Houston employees is the same which basically means San Ramon subsidizes the salary for those in Houston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't force people to move positions if they're providing a good service to the company.

    I worked at Chevron

    Pros

    Very friendly and respect driven culture. Great benefits. Very competitive salary and benefits. Provide employees with choices for different schedules such as 9/80s and 4/10s

    Cons

    Very process driven and beauracratic culture. An enormous amount of old grizzled employees that have been promoted due to tenure only as opposed to good management skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This organization should really focus on achieving results as opposed to the process of how those results are achieved. Very rigid and opposed to any change that can improve efficiency as the company is a very large and old multinational corporation
