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

    Pros

    Complicated and challenging job working with various moving parts. I especially enjoyed working with colleagues in India and Philippines. working with plants and transportation companies was fulfilling.

    Cons

    Upper management was so focused on "safety" it was very contrived. Meetings were unproductive. Lack of trust from upper management. They got rid of "980s" which allowed us to work 9-9 hour days, and have the 10th off to spend with family. They cancelled this one day with no notice, and it was devastating to me as a mother. absolutely devastating. The lack of communication surrounding it was cowardly.

    Advice to Management

    I believe they are changing the upper management. THe intermediate management is fine!

    Pros

    Great pay. Fun job. Some great people to work with.

    Cons

    Company promoting women that were new to the refinery world but they would tell you and your team that basically you didn't know how to do your job. It was all about promoting women in our company at all costs. The company had got the crap sued out of them more than once by women claiming to be discriminated against. Never a team player in the bunch. I worked there for 26 years.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look when promoting women into positions were they manage more than just themselves. Look and ask questions. Don't just stick is with a lame duck from corporate.

    Pros

    Chevron employees great people who are dedicated to their jobs and the company. The benefits and pay are excellent and are above average for the area.

    Cons

    Favoritism, middle mangers who try to micro manage from a distance. This particular manager had no clue how the facility operated or anything about the people who worked there, but he took a dislike to some and those people were terminated by fabrication of his making.

    Advice to Management

    Get Rid of the Manager who YOU know is detrimental to not only your workforce but to the moral of your company. You will see a VAST improvement in the workforce if you do.

    Great benefits, contribute atleast 2% to 401K and they will match 8%. Annuity based on service, two weeks vacation at date of hire. Lots of overtime if you like easy money.

    Management can be petty and discipline is a sliding scale depending on who you know. Unless you have a engineering degree specifically, you can expect to never be promoted.
