Pros

Excellent training programs for new employees.
Great benefits packages despite marginal compensation.
9/80 work schedule promotes work & life balance.

Cons

Lack of transparency in decisions made by senior management.
Uncompetitive compensation is not effective for retaining top talent.
Policies sometimes get in the way of business decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Chervon has one of the strongest portfolios of the major oil companies, but needs to retain a talented work force to achieve success in these projects.

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, vacation, bonuses. Company cares about the employees and wants to ensure that our health and safety is 1st.

    Cons

    One of the primary downsides of working in the HR organization at Chevron is that as an experienced hire they do not value the outside experience and expertise that the employees bring. If you didn't grow up in the organization then you must do your time and earn your way through their process. Additionally, if you arent' globally mobile then it's hard to advance in the hr organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the value of expertise that external hires bring to the function. You don't have to grow up in Chevron to be a value to the function.
