    I have been working at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic people who are very professional. Interesting work. If you can manage it, its a good place for a long-term career.

    Cons

    Chevron force ranks all of its employees. Since the layoffs in 2015-2016 it is a very lean company. Force ranking results in some low morale because everyone that is still there is working pretty hard and may feel very devalued when they get forced into a particular box, even if they have made some significant contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop forced ranking. Most experts say it does more harm than good. You have "thinned the heard" over the past couple of years to what I would think are your best folks. Don't you want to keep them around, especially if oil prices start to climb again and you need that institutional knowledge to stay there?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chevron (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview was easy. They ask situational questions. Looking for diversity and a team player. Also, being able to work independently comes as a plus as management isn't the type to micro manage.
