Pros

Work is relevant and important. There are opportunities to work in different areas of the business and in different technologies over the course of a career. The benefits include a yearly bonus, excellent contributions to a 401K, and a pension plan. Employees participate in a yearly survey and the results ot the survey are taken seriously. Advancement within the company is possible. Chevron's facilities and equipment are operated safety and reliably. Alternative work schedules are available and widely used.

Cons

There is still a "Good Old Boys" culture in some parts of the organization. The pace is fast and the workload can cause significant stress and long work hours.

Advice to Management

Focus on both long term and short term objectives. Implement new technologies successfully. Continue the work to impove the public's impression of the company.

    Pros

    Stable, relaxed yet stimulating, the company cares about it employes safety and health and builds this into its procedures and enforces them. The 401K match is generous and so are the health benefits. it is a company where a lot of freedom is given and responsibility expected to set ones own schedule at the same time they expect a lot from me but those freedoms and compensations balance this out very well

    Cons

    It can take a long time to get things done and there is a fair amount of paper work to do. Also there is office politics where advancement is about who you know and fitting in is emphasized than I think it should be compared with performance.

    Advice to Management

    try to watch for social climbers and don't reward the squeeky wheels

    Pros

    9/80 schdule - flex hours - pay & benefits - work & life balance

    Cons

    It's an oil company so you have to deal with some negative press and conversations. Pay is about the same when compared with the other big oils. ExxonMobil pays a bit more. Chevron requires most of the employees to be mobil. If you can't move, don't expect to promoted very fast

    Advice to Management

    Keep the share prices up
