    rotating shifts are hard on the body

    Don't micro manage, once a person is trained, trust them to do the job they were trained to do.

    I have been working at Chevron Products Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    A wonderful company to work for. Chevron is strong on integrity and principals and allow their employees to always put family first.

    Cons

    If there were any cons, I guess I would have to say, company should allow more telecommuting (I.e. work from home)

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Work life balance. Great pension and income. Pleasure working for when I am actually offshore performing work. Having a schedule and vacation time is great. Having my own cubicle while working in the office.

    I am being let go from job cuts. Management thinks they are better

    Advice to Management

    Inexperience kids thinking they everything. kept scaffolding on rent for a year on structures to be removed and now some of us are forced to seek employment because you are sloppy and don't listen to onsite managers.

    Pros

    Company that provides great stability for families that require health benefits and retirement plan and overall supports Work/Life Balance.

    Cons

    It's not what you know or how hard you work, it's all about "perception" - objectivity is out the window! The old school thinking of "playing the game" is still practiced here and bullying exists so you can forget about career advancement and aligning opportunities if you step on the wrong manager's toes.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a more engaging and effective checks and balances within the year-end performance reviews; managers should not be allowed to hide behind these processes and use it as a way of "punishing" an employee. Would like to see more effective HR personnel that are really into aligning with keeping "Human Energy" at the forefront rather than protecting bad managers.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to start career. Challenging roles and responsibilities early. Most people are generally friendly and helpful. Pay and 9/80 schedule rock!

    Cons

    Some bad apples do exist which can make certain aspects of the job difficult. 12 hour shift required during shutdowns. Not sure how the outlook on oil is in the next 20 years. Upstream is going through massive layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to guys on the front line.
