    Pros

    A company that prizes its ethical foundation;strong focus on safety; strong focus on gender diversity;very talented workforce.

    A very risk averse company; most leaders have avoided risky assignments; a strong connective thread for those who worked together in their early years, especially on California assignments

    Advice to Management

    Focus on nurturing those from different backgrounds, rather than a comfort with the employees from legacy Chevron,

    I worked at Chevron (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, both financially and medical benefits are excellent. Flex hours and 9/80 work schedule are available domestically.
    Great support when you have family issues.
    Safety is a number 1 focus both for employees and contractors.
    If you are flexible you can work in many countries overseas

    Cons

    Still a "old school" male dominated company especially in the Major Capital Projects area, although progress has been made. Retirement medical benefits in Canada could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Performance reviews should be based on performance alone, ethnic background and quotas should not be a factor. Terminating poor performers should not be limited to times when things are tough it should be an ongoing process.
