    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is respectful to engage with and at all levels within the company, you are never threatened and your input is always taken into consideration. Annual staff ranking is a process that is made visible and is very encompassing, feedback is sort from other individuals you have engaged with and it is a fair process. The companies pays 75% of any degree or training you wish to pursue as long as it has some relevance to your job or role within the company. Most staff members have worked here for 30 plus years and the reason for that is clear, you can have 30 careers within this one company as it is diverse and global. An expat assignment with this company will spoil you and your family and is a wonderful growth opportunity. Very good benefits, healthcare and pension package. I am thankful daily for working for this company after kissing a few frogs along the way (SAP, Siemens etc.)

    Cons

    Many business units are packing up and moving from California to Texas, good news is the individual tax will decrease considerably. It is a very large organization and global so reaching consensus can be a lot of work. Understanding the complexity of the business can take years. Everyone wants to know and be involved so communications to all stakeholders is a skill one must master. It is a company of engineers and therefore thoroughness and details are important

    Advice to Management

    Keep the sucession planning top of mind. Be less risk adverse and continue the incredible Chevron Way.

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good culture, opportunities for advancement, generous benefits and pension, good work/life balance if you want it, very stable job

    Cons

    Slow to change, follower - not a leader - in information technology, lots of unnecessary process and red tape, analysis by paralysis, not an IT innovator, difficult to attract highest qualified IT professionals due to slow pace and conservative outlook

    Advice to Management

    If you always go for 80/20, you lose out differentiating your business by skipping the last 20%. Until the IT department ceases to be a cost center, we are service providers, so let's call it by its real name.
