    I worked at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Very professional work environment. Good employee work force. Excellent employee benefits and compensation. Great work environment with many perks. Lots of opportunity to develop your talents and training.

    Cons

    Work life balance is always an issue with work required even during your off time. Very stressful demands expected on last minute decisions. When workforce was being cut back most senior and older employees wee cut by management that knew nothing of their work experience, younger less experienced employees were put in place.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your experienced long time employees. Don't fall inline with the status quo of what other officers want the work force to be. Legacy employees seem to be the ones that don't fit the mold.

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Low Stress, work- life balance, people generally are nice to each other, culture focus on treating people nicely

    Cons

    Ranking system for job development and restrain your salary growth. Nowadays there is no more pension and therefore the salary compared to other tech companies ( in the bay area only) is not that great. Not great for people who don't have oil and gas related engineer background to stay for long term. Some jobs are very specific to Chevron only ( ex: Operational Excellence Ad visor)

    employee administration needs more attention. Employee selection tends to be sloppily done and not the best folks make the ranks..
