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

    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

      I have been working at Chevron full-time for more than 10 years

      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 for 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

      I worked at Chevron

      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
