    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fortnightly Friday off if workload allows it. Flexible work arrangement depending on your manager.

    Cons

    Constant restructure and redundancies resulting in low morale and internal backstabbing (smiling assassins). Political management who talks the talk but lack leadership and performance. Flat structure with no opportunities for promotion or career advancement. Pretence of flat structure for empowerment but running teams in same hierarchies and bureaucracy. Preaches importance of feedback but punishes those who speak up or highlights areas for improvement, including making individuals redundant thus creating a culture of superficial positivity and silence. Lots of new initiatives that don't add value but done to show that change action is taking place.
