I worked at Chevron

Pros

Employee benefits and community involvement. 9/80 and flexible work schedules allow for family balance.

Cons

Depending on the "function" you support, work-life balance may be optional. Training and development seem to be managers discrection and not the choice of the employee. Not many standards for Managers/Supervisors to adhere to and performance goals are definately hit or miss. Most seem to be made up which makes it difficult to assess how one makes it to category 1 if your hard work but it is group specific and irrelavent to ranking teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In a world of acronyms and stardardization, ensure that there are measurements in place to asess managers and supervisors effectiveness.

    I worked at Chevron

    Pros

    The company is one of the biggest oil companies and has the potential to employ thousands of workers especially the unemployed.

    Cons

    The company has a phenomenal return in revenue earnings but decided to lay off employees to maintain profit in the books and keep high salaries to CEO, board of directors and top management in expense of the rank and file employees.

    Pros

    Chevron is a great place to work. There are wide and diverse opprtunities in different area of specilisation. You could be at the top with hard work and a bit of luck.

    Cons

    Silent bees don't get recognised! Non visible jobs will earn you no recognition. It is all about visibility and perception. Boot lickers and ass kissers make great progress here. ol boy network is alive and on steroid.
