    I have been working at Chevron Products Company full-time

    Pros

    The people at Chevron are the best reason to work at Chevron Products Company. The operatimg facilities are what generates revenue for the company, strong there is strong collaboration. This is also the most commonly cited reason among those who have chosen to make their career at Chevron. In addition the company holds to its ethics, has 9/80 schedule as standard, competitive medical, bonuses based on individual and organizational...

    Cons

    By the nature of working for 24/7 operation facilities, work can have very significant peaks that coincide with maintenance events and have on-call duties. Regulatory and external political environment in CA is highly unfavorable.

    Pros

    Company has a pension plan, 401k, good benefits over all and a bonus annually.

    Cons

    To many people that have been around 30+ years just milking the system to get the last few years in to retire. Not a team environment. Too much of its not my job, pass the buck. People taking advantage of the system. Show up late, 2.5 hour lunches, and always seem to manage to leave before the employees that arrived 3 hours ahead of them. People promoted and put into management roles with no training and have no business...

    Advice to Management

    You really need to take a good long hard look at the organzation. It is going downhill and getting a bad reputation. Employees from all over the organization are experiencing this type of behavior.

    Pros

    outstanding 401k, pension, and pay. large company which may have plenty of opportunities but depending on which division you work in

    Cons

    can become pigeon holed if stuck in division with little growth. Much work really hard to demonstrate you have the capabilities to do other things. People get mental perceptions that may be difficult to overcome. "old-school" mentality where you get a lot of people afraid to try something new. Some remnants of sexism but compared to other oil companies they seem to be doing the most to stop it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

    I have been working at Chevron Products Company full-time for more than 4 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.
