    Pros

    Good 401k. Comparable salary to major operators...

    Cons

    Full of morons and suck ups.... not allowed to take initiative that would help the organization.... must follow procedures to the letter.... kind of like robot....not being paid to think but follow like lemmings....and as for management... they are the real poison...

    Advice to Management

    Do chevron a big favor and resign....most of you are nothing but burden to the company

    Pros

    Varied experience, interesting work, good salary, benefits & training opportunities when oil price was high but these are much scaled back when oil price is low

    Cons

    American company that works internationally. Opportunities for growth are limited for those who are not from US or are not willing to work in US.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how you can value, grow & better integrate non-US employees.

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

    Pros

    Good FIFO roster, camp life ok, great group of experienced people in my team. Should be the greatest job in the world but for its poor leadership and management

    Cons

    Horrible culture on site, due to severe lack of experience in management/leadership positions. Run by politics and people pushing there own agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Enable the people you have employed, restructure management

    Pros

    Stable company with overall good vision

    Cons

    Company has changed significantly during latest growth and now downturn. Mgmt has become poor and self protected

    Advice to Management

    Retire, many of you are protecting your own (seen in last lay-offs), and clearly don't care about future of the company

    Pros

    Great working culture. Highly skilled workforce means there's always learning to be done if you're confident enough to ask for it.

    Cons

    Very competitive to get in so you'll need to be at your best when you're there.
    Lots of highly technical guys there, bit of an age gap below that

    Advice to Management

    Upskill the early/mid-career talent
