      Pros

      Potential for good roles, provided you meet unspoken age requirements. The company embraces relatively quickly, changes are broadcast widely leaving little second guessing. Major projects, change management tackled head on with varying degrees of success: they utilised whoevers on hand to do the job. Some project outcomes mediocre at best due to poor implementation and business acumen.

      Cons

      Internal PR efforts via USA are very WOKE - is it virtue signalling or a public relations risk management strategy? The average employee doesn't read the communications let alone actually believe what they say. To comment with a different view on the internal facebook look alike would be damaging to your career I suspect. Witnessed managers bullying in another dept - tolerated by HR & I assume senior mngmnt despite the wheels falling off, clear lack of skills apparent in said mngr however no obvious disciplining occured. Ageism practised and tolerated. Some managers don't exercise logic.

      Pros

      Good $$$ Enterprise sized teams Some very smart people work here

      Cons

      US Centric. No ability to challenge central think, especially when it doesn’t work in other countries. Scaled Agile is a framework not a playbook to be followed word for word

    4. 3.0
      Former Employee

      Part of career plan but not whole plan: earn money/transferable skills and move elsewhere.

      May 14, 2021 - Advisor

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pays well, can gain transferable skills quickly, set your career up and then springboard elsewhere. When commodity price high, company can wield political and financial stroke making for a workplace that can feel influential.

      Cons

      Volatile commodity = regular layoff cycles = highly disposable/replaceable workforce. Shorter employment horizon can tend to surface undesirable workplace actions and behaviours. Aging industry with best days behind it. Use your time there to build good skills to apply in new economy industries.

      Good Salary and Benefits

      Pros

      9 day fortnight Good salary and benefits

      Cons

      Chevron encourages staff to provide upward feedback to management, but those that do are ultimately punished by management if that feedback is not what they want to hear. If you keep your mouth shut and tell management what they want to hear, then you should be ok. Career opportunities are diminishing as the sector comes under pressure from renewables.
