    Current Employee - Financial Analyst in Concord, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    1. The company is in a relatively strong position, despite falling crude prices.

    2. A great variety of jobs you can apply to with relative ease compared to applying for a job at another company.

    3. Great educational benefits (75% reimbursement), although I've heard that they discourage applying to more expensive schools when there is a less costly alternative.

    Cons

    1. Big organization, so it can be difficult to get things done.

    2. The performance management system (PMP) depends on how engaged your manager is in selling your strengths ( this can be good or bad depending on the manager).

    3. Relatively low pay for employees with financial backgrounds. Salary increases and promotions for financial employees are "conservative", meaning you don't get anywhere fast, compared to other specialties in Chevron.

    4. Recent outsourcing efforts within certain departments contribute to low morale and feelings of job insecurity.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good balance between work/life. For most employees there is a 9/80 work schedule available which gives you every other Friday off. Chevron offers a large variety of different job opportunities that you can find within the company or one of the wholly owned subsidery companies.

    Cons

    For finance/accounting professions the base pay could be higher. The pay is comparable to other energy companies but not necessarily to other industries like public accounting or commercial/investment banking. Also Chevron is very beurocratic, its hard to move more then one pay scale above your current level at any given time and you usually have to spend 18 months in a position before you can try and 'post' to a higher level job,

    Advice to Management

    Do not follow the 'pay scale' so ridgidly when promoting high performing employees.
