    I worked at Chevron full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    9/80 schedule, get hours you can use towards vacation if you are asked to work overtime, pension, given a lot of responsibility and challenging problems when you start. I came from college and was already leading large projects shortly after arriving. Can move to different positions within the company fairly easily.

    Cons

    Old school corporation. Moving up the ladder is slow and pay increases are the same. I didn't use much of the technical skills I learned during my Mechanical Engineering degree. People who underperform stay in the company; they rarely get rid of people who don't pull their weight.
