I worked at Chevron

Pros

Chevron pays alot of money and they have a good work environment that encourages innovative solutions to old fashioned problems.

Cons

Chevron does not give enough vacation time or fresh beverages to drink that will replenish my energy and decrease thirst.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should be nicer to your employees and say things like "good job!" and "great job!" instead of just saying nothing at all.

    I have been working at Chevron

    Pros

    - Benefits and 401k are very good
    - Salary is competitive
    - Work life balance can be good but it depends entirely on where you work and your manager
    - Leaders try hard and most are quite intelligent
    - Co-workers are pretty nice and want to do well

    Cons

    - If you demonstrate capability and ability to execute, management will assign you more and more work while others that are less capable enjoy their "9/80" schedule (every other friday off)
    - Recent cuts in Downstream have created a logjam at middle management - Baby boomers are firmly entrenched in their jobs and not going anywhere soon
    - Downstream is a very tough business to be in, but the company focuses mostly on the Upstream and Gas opportunities. Those businesses can afford much higher cost structures than Downstream, hence Downstream is loaded with unafforadble support costs.
    - Those in the P&L businesses 'get it' and typically execute, those in the support groups largely are clueless to how the business runs
    - So many processes and more focus on process development and recording rather than simple executiion
    - Downstream and business unit leadership constantly coming up with new visions and strategies
    - Managers and Leaders ask for more and more from their people and then hold supervisors accountable for over-working their teams (how do they think the work gets done???)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Pick a strategy, stick to it, and communicate in a consistent matter
    - Be reasonable when it comes to employee workload
    - Be honest with yourself about the company and the perfornmance of Downstream and don't set unattainable goals
    - OWN YOUR MISTAKES and be accountable!
