    Pros

    GREAT company. Have been here for 10 years & hope to be here for 10+ more. Great work/life balance. Good opportunity to advance

    Cons

    Too many processes. it's sometimes hard to get the 'actual' work done. A short duration activity (1-2 days) may take a week to get done due to the numerous processes we have to follow.

    Advice to Management

    minimize processes

    Pros

    Great benefits for long term employees.

    Cons

    Huge and slow moving bureaucracy. Bureaucrats always win over what is right or best. Think US legislature.
    Recognition is given to politically connected - not contribution or performance.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs a better review of supervisors and managers. Some are causing great harm in their teams and there is no method of review and accountability. Managers that "manage up" well can get away with major mis-deeds.

    I worked at Chevron as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chevron is a huge company that is doing well. The future of the company is in shale gas, so there's huge potential for growth, even for a company that is already huge. They have a lot of resources, therefore compensation is very good. They even have a pension program too. Interns were also allowed to contribute to a 401K but they never told us how to set that up. Best part about Chevron is their 9-80 program, so you work 80 hours in 9 days, as opposed to 10 days, and you get every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Safety is very important to the Chevron culture, which they call it the Chevron Way. And it should be, especially out on the rigs and oil platforms, though it trickles into the office environment too. So for example, you are to anonymously report someone, at least once a month, if they are doing something unsafe, such as not holding the railings on the escalator. If you are typing too much on your computer, it will lock up for 5 minutes and force you to take a break. While that is all great for ergonomic reason, it does present a Big Brother mentality.

    In addition, big oil is big oil. Any interests on renewable energy developments will label you as someone who's values and interests do not align with Chevron's. So if you are interested in renewables and corporate responsibility, just keep it to yourself.
