I worked at Chevron full-time (More than a year)
Chevron prides itself on its attention to its employees. They support a great number of employee networks, their benefits are outstanding and - from what I've seen - unrivaled, and they have a robust training system that will take any subpar employee and make them a good employee--as long as the employee is motivated to take advantage of it.
The structure of working at a major corporation creates some red tape, and an unfamiliar attitude between employees and teams. I was just a number at Chevron. Initially I was hired to do one job by a group of people, but my first day I was told I would be doing a different job. The people who hired me were not available for contact and I was told I would be at that first job within 1 1/2 years. That was then pushed to 2 years, which was then pushed to 2 years and 8 months before I was scheduled to be transferred. Ultimately, the transfer never happened before I was let go. In the first few months at your position at Chevron, you will be identified for a fast track upward, or not. If you don't make that list, then you will be fighting uphill both ways while peers advance past you. It is not done on purpose, but it is common knowledge between employees.
Advice to Management
Be honest with employees. The lies between management and employees killed my motivation. I wasn't respected, and considered quitting multiple times due to the way I was treated. However, I am glad I did not quit. I gained valuable experience with them and appreciate the time I had.
