I have been working at Chevron as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Having started my Chevron internship with no prior industry experience, I was worried about being unable to keep up with expectations and demands. But Chevron's emphasis on personal career growth and treating employees as individuals rather than cogs, helped make my internship a fulfilling experience. Now as a full time employee, I'm glad to be a part of a workplace where work is challenging and colleagues form a support network rather than competitors.

Cons

Especially when new hires or interns are just starting off, it's sometimes hard to understand how our individual project or teams relate to the larger business unit goals or needs. Incorporating that discussion into some aspect of training would be helpful.

    Good Place to Work, but only if you're US payroll...

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

    Pros

    Safety ALWAYS comes first.
    High set of core values.
    Work Life Balance.
    Great learning experience on processes.

    Cons

    If you're not US payroll, your chances of growing are slim to none.
    Management doesn't like to promote talent from emerging economic markets.
    2 different worlds between Upstream & Downstream.
    Pay scales are relatively mediocre for non US payroll. CVX doesn't care if the country in which you work has economic woes (between inflation and devaluation, you lose double digit percentage of your salary each year), they adjust your scale to fit budget, making you earn less each year.
    9/80 schedule is only applicable to operations outside the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If they actually read this, please refer to the cons.
    There should be opportunities for non US payroll employees who work based in emerging economies, to be able to grow in the company.
    9/80 should be deployed in other countries.
    Perks like the Chevron employee discount program for US payroll employees, should be available to other employees.
    Don't underestimate employees from emerging economic markets.

    I have been working at Chevron as a contractor

    Pros

    If you're an employee, I think Chevron is great.

    Cons

    Unfortunately in the department I'm in, contractors are treated like second-class citizens even though we do the same thing as full-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat contractors fairly - address that contractors contribute a great deal to Chevron as a whole and make us feel like we're valued.
