Pros

Chevron provides leadership and training to keep their staff up there with the best in the world at oil and gas operations. Little wonder there is hardly any employee turnover.

Cons

Hard to get noticed due to the whole corporate lifestyle. Some people just there for a pay day.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    The maturity level of Chevron allows for great benefits if you're a FTE. Obviously not the same if you're a contractor.

    Cons

    Training is only offered to FTE. Contractors have to pay for their own training.

    As stated above, Chevron does not provide any benefits for contractors.

    Office culture is equal to that of a "good old boy" club. There are many high tenure (30+ years) employees that talk down at new employees and contractors.

    Leadership lacks involvement and thus employees/contractors are left without direction.

    Project completion is expected within unrealistic timelines and without proper funding.

    Advice to Management

    Consider leveraging smaller teams. Team leads are drowning and cannot tend to their employees' daily needs.

    Offer training to contractors as well. You can't expect the required level of competence from someone you don't train. This is part of employee development and one day that contractor may be part of your FTE force.

    Office culture needs to be reviewed but it needs to begin at the team lead level and work its way up. Perhaps employees and contractors should be allowed to grade team lead and manager performance as well.

    A great place to work that genuinely cares about you.

    Pros

    Having moved on, it has become painfully (pun) evident just how much emphasis they put on your physical and emotional well-being.

    Cons

    Like most shops, they are trying to "do more with less" and it doesn't always work out as well as planned.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for. This is a cliche for a reason. Back-filling positions takes far too long, especially when most teams feel understaffed in the first place.
