    I worked at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and extremely invested in sustaining health, environment and safety performance.

    Cons

    -PMP process is ineffective
    -Managers who create hostile work environment are "coached" as a opposed to being terminated even after repeated reports. Similar to Uber, Chevron needs to be willing to remove the problem manager/leader as opposed to protecting them while losing high performing female/minority employees.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your organizational culture bc it is failing. Leaders are mistreating employees and getting away with it. HR is not representing the employees but rather the abusive managers.
    Leadership performance should be measured/evaulated by both successes and lessons learned. EQ training should be mandatory. If more than 40% of a manager's team leaves/resigns within less than a year that should be a direct reflection of the managing supervisor. Turnover is extremely costly especially if you allow hostile a work environment to continue and avoid the root cause.

    I worked at Chevron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    meet interesting people, get paid every 2 weeks, set schedule, get paid overtime on many holidays

    Cons

    set schedule , worked "relief shift" 4 day shifts followed by 2 graveyard shifts. called in sick once w/bronchitis, manager ignored so I had to go in.
    had seizure triggered by schedule, requested an adjustment and manager asked me to quit for it. negativity from some coworkers during shift, constantly had to tell homeless to leave for shoplifting , begging for money, and digging through trash, caught people w/drugs, cleaned up bathrooms after people shot up or smoked meth, got cussed out, harassed by people
    large homeless population spends time at chevron to shoplift, bathe and do drugs in bathroom, previous employee constantly neglected duties as a manager's favorite, was forced to perform their slack and correct the mistakes, my manager had only been manager for about a year, she disliked an employee and tried to get her to quit, too unexperienced, petty, immature to make good choices

    Advice to Management

    recognize when you are wrong ethically and morally, stop favoritism toward some and animosity toward others, take responsibility for your mistakes, stop discriminating against employees based on disability or age, put more consideration into decision making, create a more positive work environment, leave emotional mood swings aside during work

    I have been working at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Work Life Balance (9/80's, never work more than 40 hours a week)
    401k match (if you put 2 percent they put 8)
    The Pension
    Very laid back culture, very helpful culture

    Cons

    Corporate red tape
    It is hard for people to move out of the department, even though they lie and promise people 3-5 years. Unless you are kissing mgmt's butt it is more like 5-7 years for you to move onto other finance departments

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

    Pros

    Pay and bonus structure is better than the avg for this region. Strong safety culture and mobility within the company...when the money is there.

    Cons

    Poor management, nothing is transparent, most hirings and promotions are based on the “Good ol Boy” system of who you know is more important that skill set and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate hiring and promotion process, streamline number of employees in the office accordingly to amount of work taking place in the field. Increase transparency with the workforce, not everything has to be kept a secret.

    Pros

    You get to work with and learn from the smartest people in the industry.

    Cons

    Depending on which "company" within Chevron you work for, you can end up in pretty great functions and some toxic teams.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front with you employees. Don't lie to your employees to give them hope for development and upward mobility when they do not exist. Misleading your employees only lead to terrible work culture.

    I have been working at Chevron part-time

    Pros

    The customers are friendly. I get along with my co-workers and management.

    Cons

    It is not a Monday-Friday job. It is not what I went to school for.

    Advice to Management

    Just got a new manager. I don't know how he works or how he wants things done yet. I would have a better answer after he is there for a longer period of time.
