    I have been working at Chevron Information Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Values People. Looks to move employees in tough times over layoffs. Cut's contractors first.

    Cons

    Getting along with others takes priority over delivering results so people tend to try to maintain the peace even if projects have to fail. If you have a tendency to prioritize results over making everyone happy, you may not progress in your career as quickly as expected.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize results over politics and be sure accusations about "not working well with others" are thoroughly validated before they are held against an employee in ranking sessions.

    I have been working at Chevron Information Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are new to the workforce, Chevron has a great program to help develop you for your first 5 years. Good process oriented company.

    Cons

    Don't enter at mid-career and be prepared for periods of belt tightening based on oil prices (now is a very BAD time)

    Advice to Management

    Develop ALL of your employees not only the young ones. I entered mid career and have yet to see any real attention after 10 years.
