No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

9/80 work schedule, great work/life balance, they invest in their employees development and training

Cons

A lot of ITC jobs moved to Houston, TX and not enough in the Bay Area where this is supposed to be "corporate headquarters". It seems that the outlook for headquarters staying in San Ramon are not likely. The rumor is that as soon as John Watson retires the new Chairmen will be located in Houston, TX and that will become the new headquarters. The moral has taken a dive since all the moves happened. A lot of people had to uproot their entire family even when they didn't want to but out of a necessity to keep a job.

Advice to Management

Offer more work-life balance by allowing employees to work from home if there is no need to be in the office. The 2 + hour commute per day is horrible. This would help the moral and overall productiveness get a boost. It would also be nice if Chevron in San Ramon didn't put the on-site child care center on hold. Of course the child care center in Houston is up and running.

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. A lot of opportunities for growth and advancement in various areas of the company. The company culture is awesome. They really care about their employees and contractors.

    Cons

    As a contractor interested in joining full time, it is very difficult. I've known other contractors who have been with the company for 4+ years before they were hired on as an employee. I feel like like if you have been with the company for that long, you are already accustomed to the culture and should be given a little more consideration.
