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

    Pros

    Pay was good as is the case with most large oil and gas companies. Good access to on the job and classroom based training.

    Cons

    Upward mobility was extremely limited and reserved for those related to upper management aka "Chevron babies". A noticeable group of employees were recruited on this basis and promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Management is setting up the company for failure with subjective recruitment and promotions. Once the long-standing current management retires, the new workforce will be ill-enabled to run it, especially given the ever increasing complexities of global relationships and projects.

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

    Pros

    Industry average pay and benefits package for senior experienced hires. Often requires a pay cut to become a full time employee.

    Cons

    Very limited career advancement if you join the company as a senior experienced hire.

    Advice to Management

    Review and evaluate many of your long-time middle managers and terminate below average performers. Don't hire senior experienced hires and have them work for junior managers that don't have the proper level of competence or experience to supervise very experienced personnel.

    Pros

    The Pros to working at a Chevron Fuel Stop was that they seemed to pay above average for their area.

    Cons

    They let you sport a NOTHING but creepy mustache but NO BEARED. For me, that was a "no go" after a while because who wants to look that stupid right?. Also when the store manager is accused of wrong doing that many times, you fire them, not just keep them in a job and hire their family.

    Advice to Management

    Avice noted above^^^^^^^^

    I worked at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefits and good company to start or enhance your experience.

    Cons

    Too many long term employees that are not open to new ideas. The high potential employees are more work than their worth. If you are a yes person, then Chevron is the place you want. If you want to think outside the box then go find a job.

    Advice to Management

    Value Experience and promote the Chevron way Behaviors amoung all of your staff. Employees use it against others.
