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.

    Opportunity rich
    Great learning environment
    Aspiration, experience and skills will take you far
    Great Benefits
    Massive scale projects

    Cons

    Slow to adopt technology - almost to the "Amish" level
    Process oriented - sometimes to the point of constipation
    Concensus decision making culture - the good thing is that everyone has a say; the bad thing is that everyone has a say
    Too many managers - too few leaders

    Advice to Management

    Managers administering a process to grow leaders "We Lead" does not a leader make!
    Senior Leaders are much better than middle managers - middle managers are quite weak.
