I have been working at Chevron Information Technology full-time (More than 10 years)
I have been with the company 25+ years and there are many positive aspects to the job. First and foremost is a well-though company culture the enhances Diversity, Cooperation and getting the job done the Right Way. Next, we have a very strong Project Management and Decision Making culture which helps insure we are tackling the right work and making the most appropriate decisions given the risks and costs. Lastly, its been a really interesting and challenging work environment--lots of new work and many opportunities to leverage what I have learned in new ways.
It is a large company and somewhat bureaucratic. You really need to take a long term view of things since its not always easy to rapidly advance and move up. We are also very process oriented and getting things done can sometimes seem difficult as you navigate through all of the hoops.
Advice to Management
You are doing a lot of things very well at the moment. I think my best advice is to visible demonstrate your commitment to taking more risks, being more agile and more decisive. Easy to do when all goes right--the real test is how you handle things when it doesn't--despite everyone's best intentions.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chevron Information Technology (Baton Rouge, LA) in October 2016.
S.T.A.R. based interview in person. They came to visit my school and I attended their presentation. I applied online, and landed an interview a couple weeks later. I did my interview in person, and about 1.5 months later I received an offer for a summer internship. It was as smooth process, and the interviewers were extremely nice and professional.
