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

Pros

Great Work/life balance and working environment. Chevron has a great safety culture which is so much engrained in its employees that after some time it just becomes second nature to do everything the right/safe way.
Very good company to work for.

Cons

As with any big company, very process oriented. Sometimes projects gets delayed because of all the processes it needs to follow.
You can get lost easily within the company, you have to be on your toes and build relationships with management to proceed further, not always, but most of the time.

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

    Pros

    9/80 flexible schedule, one of the few companies still with a pension, strong procedural guidelines for a multitude of process

    Cons

    Procedural guidelines for every single process. Very hierarchical, I couldn't just email my VP with an idea. Very function oriented, a Finance person couldn't go and do sales mid-career and then do business development and back to Finance, so in that sense you're pigeon holed. Ironically, the company leaders flaunt their "diverse" company experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Let workers pursue other development tracts otherwise when all the baby boomers retire you'll be in for a world of hurt

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Large Enterprise to practice IT on
    - Diverse employees
    - Pockets of talent

    Cons

    - Value of IT is overall seen as low-mid importance at best
    - Low value of IT leads to innovative employees and high performers having to focus their energy outside of the workplace.
    - Strong work ethic is encouraged but not valued
    - Significant turnover in technology staff taking place leading to tough growing pains for pre-existing employees and new incoming employees alike
    - Management not qualified to run technical teams leading to lack of focus and value of the real priorities
    - Lack of inclusion for African and African-American employees

    Advice to Management

    Promote technology more seriously and find ways to encourage technical advancement in the company. Attract and hire qualified management and stop trying to achieve excellence holistically through processes (i.e. - why does our datacenters keep failing). Re-examine the Horizons program for high-performers and their movement throughout the company. Sell management on development programs and encouraging them to promote staff throughout the organization where it makes sense. Take diversity and inclusion seriously.
