Pros

Chevron is a great place to work if you're an engineer. Pay is great, benefits are awesome, the 9/80 schedule provides a lot of flexibility (every other Friday off, but work 9 hours during the week and 8 hours on your Friday on). They treat everyone fairly and are very big on diversity and safety. They are also strong proponents of work/life balance. You have just about an endless amount of sick time and entry level employees start out with 2 weeks of paid vacation, increasing by 1 week every 5 years.

Cons

I work in IT and while it is great company, they do not necessarily view IT employees as valued. In fact, IT employees are referred to as "non-technical" because only the engineering jobs are the "technical" jobs. Chevron pays well for IT jobs if you're freshly out of college, but once you have a few years of experience under your belt, it might be worthwhile to go somewhere else and get a bump in pay.

Advice to Management

Show more value in your employees who are not engineers and you might have better employee retention in the non-engineering disciplines.

    Pros

    Strong benefits, flexible on work locations, upfront management, emphasis on safety and protecting the environment, international opportunities, numerous potential jobs within the company, highly focused on keeping employees happy

    Cons

    Average pay, can get lost in this huge company, process oriented projects can make progress slow, Chevron is highly non-competitive with US land operations because everything always has to be "Cadillac"

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with keeping employees happy; better pay and benefits for younger employees would certainly help with attrition

    Pros

    Great opportunities for O&G experienced hires and people with a strong desire to succeed at a company that is in a critical and growing business line: energy.

    Cons

    There is a lot of reliance on 'old' deciion-making. Chevron hired a lot of experienced people, but the decisions all get made by 25-year+ people. Can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate feedback and ideas from experienced hire population into decision-making.
