    I have been working at Chevron for less than a year

    Pros

    Very pleasant work atmosphere and people are looking after each other.

    Cons

    Newcomers are not welcomed to overly excited. Current restructuring means that jobs are cut but management does not tell you much.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than letting people wait and worry about job prospects, incorporate them in this decision process.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst 

    I worked at Chevron full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    World-class oil operations, state-of-the art in some locations

    Cons

    - When crude oil price $/barrel is low, money comes first (not people and good relationships).

    I have been working at Chevron full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    9/80 schedule, general great peers and coworkers. Engaging work, interesting industry, and even without drinking the kool-aid you can recognize the impact of your work on the economy and environment. High commitment to environmental safety and goals around clean energy (despite what some media may claim). Compensation and benefits are great, which is why they keep people for so long. Lots of opportunity to... rotate and learn new skills if you're proactive and network effectively. 8% 401(k) match if you contribute 2%. Pension too, which is generally unheard of for non-gov't jobs.

    Cons

    Finance teams are slowly getting caught up with technology and advanced analytics, but a lot is lip-service and patting each other on the back for using the right buzzwords. The ranking and pay determination process is archaic, and 1-2 incompetent group or line-level leaders can derail a successful employee. Many folks at early-to-mid career looking for opportunities due to lack of direction and general... micromanagement. Several outright bad managers whose behavior is ignored by higher-ups.

    Advice to Management

    Set the tone & culture from the top, while encouraging mid-managers to let their teams practice autonomy and trust their analysts to deliver. Recognize your good employees - crack down on bad managers.

    I have been working at Chevron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits (401k, healthcare, pension) They do value work life balance Great supervisors who are very supportive

    Cons

    Office politics. Even if you perform super well, if you are not management's favorite, you will not move up in the company

    Advice to Management

    Do not just focus on 1 or 2 people to groom as your next leaders, look at the good performers as well
