    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constant and genuine focus on employee safety and health puts Chevron in its own class among employers, and has changed my own behaviors about safety outside of work. Work-life balance is excellent. Great colleagues and strong long-term relationships.

    Cons

    Fewer learning and development opportunities. Career paths not transparent and some talent is stalling. Strong relationship culture means that hiring managers less wiling to take risks on talent they don't personally know.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate openly with employees and solicit their feedback. Town halls and management emails have been great. Be transparent with employees about career paths, both what is possible and what isn't. Don't make them guess and wait.

    I worked at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Good work place environment. Most people are decent hard working people. Benefits are better than average. Bonuses are good. Pay structure and pay increases are fair and transparent.

    Cons

    Too much formal process makes things slow. As with big companies, a lot of employees are there to fill up 40 hours of time by looking busy. Some power hungry pretend to "know it all" people try to claim credit for things that aren't theirs.
