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

Pros

Decent salary, like working with multi-nationals, great travel opportunities. Decent benefits.

Cons

Old school too many levels of management. Line Managers are old school glorified self serving cops. THIS IS AN OLD MANAGEMENT SCHOOL COMPANY.

Advice to Management

Performance ranking old school - needs ability for those being managed to rank their managers. Pissing off an ass manager will destroy your ranking. New managers NEED MENTORING.

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

    Pros

    Major Energy company with great benefits and work/life balance. Salaries are well above avg and annual bonus is a great plus. Love working 9/80s, which you have a 3 day weekend twice a month.

    Cons

    corporate politics are above and beyond, but what do you expect for a large energy company. If you are not known, you will not move up in the company nor be selected for other positions.

    Advice to Management

    remove red tape!!


  2. "Challenging projects, good folks to work with."

    Time to prune some of the processes back before they completely overwhelm the value added work.
