    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Chevron for less than a year

    Pros

    -High Pay -Investment Plan even for interns -9/80 Schedule -Lots of learning experiences -Plenty of fun activities -Friendly and supportive coworkers

    Cons

    - Slowdowns from typical large company office bureaucracy - Not the best working locations

    Advice to Management

    Cut bureaucratic processes where you can, create more flexible work schedules or allow remote working to open up where people can live, an important thing in upcoming generations

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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers 9/80 Schedule Training and development opportunities are plentiful Relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Bureaucratic decision-making Factory business model in the Permian leads to very narrow job responsibilities. Total compensation diverges significantly from the independents after 5+ years of experience for PE and G&G roles. Stock options are restricted to quite senior pay grades.

    Advice to Management

    Take action to stem the attrition of technical personnel in MCBU. Why give certain functions retention bonuses and then let your subsurface folks walk out the door? Slow down the rotation of senior management in the BUs. Inexperienced management creates a lot of poor decision making and puts us at a disadvantage versus our more focused peers.
