    I have been working at Chevron as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    - 9/80 work week was AWESOME
    - everything is ergonomic, and they really care that you are comfortable
    - people are very open and willing to speak and network with interns
    - since I was in San Ramon, I got to meet and interact with some of the head big wigs of the company, which was awesome as an intern!
    - excellent work-life balance as an intern
    - very nice, inclusive culture
    - all employees have an incentive to be nice to each other because of the way that performance ratings are done at the end of the year
    - supervisor was very open and willing to listen to my concerns/complaints about the company and my internship experience; she provided guidance to me to help me better understand what I really want out of my career and where I can find that both in Chevron and outside of Chevron

    Cons

    - they do not custom develop anything in-house
    - very bureaucratic environment, which makes it difficult to get stuff done
    - interns get solo projects that no one else wanted to do
    - to second that, interns do not get a real taste of what it's like to work there because they do not work on a real team project
    - the company wasn't very helpful in finding housing for interns, which was stressful and expensive
    - if your supervisor gives you a dull project, you might not have a good chance of getting a full-time offer since your project didn't have enough "meat" in it, which is totally not your fault

    Advice to Management

    Take your technology interns a little more seriously, and give them fun, challening work instead of boring, menial tasks that no one else wanted to do—otherwise, you will end up losing a lot of talent that you already invested in.

    Scrutinize your projects more closely to make sure that it would be a good, valuable lesson for the intern and that it accurately reflects what it would be like to work at Chevron full-time.

    - Always have a Plan B for the interns in case their first projects end up being infeasible—otherwise it looks like you were not prepared for the intern and that you don't take them very seriously, and they won't want to come back full-time.
