    I worked at Chevron full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn hands-on experience.

    Cons

    The Finance org in particular wants everyone to be a cog in the wheel. No individuality allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop catering to pecking order and retain people for abilities, not their success at building a management empire.

    Pros

    Awesome 401k match, plenty of learning and development opportunities, management are readily available for communication, company cares about your health

    Cons

    Oil industry is going under so there are major cuts happening in too many parts of the company. Unsure about the future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your employees and you will continue to get great work. Strongest asset is the people and never stop caring for them. Keep it up

    Pros

    Great benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    Limited to no opportunities for growth outside admin track, and not what you know but you who you know to be able to move up. Generally does not recognize potential or actual value of a good employee and bases too much on perception rather than objective factors.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify inner-company hiring processes and allow for more movement and growth for those of us who have the talent and ability, capable of providing actual results. A fancy college background does not equate to "instant qualification"; please recognize and VALUE some of your experienced workers that have at least 15-20 more years in the workforce.

    Job losses overseas or to Houston hurt some careers unless you can move your family

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good salary, 9/80 schedule.

    Cons

    Downsizing a lot every year due to oil prices, VERY old school, not innovative, some groups are terrible and petty with strict rules.

    Losing lots of career opportunities for younger folks. It is very hard to survive there if you haven't been around for 20+ years.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you treat everyone equally and make sure different opco's are not doing shady things to their employees. Confused how some opco's can have such a bad reputation and still be running.
