    Current Employee - Senior Administrative Assistant 
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Chevron full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I've enjoyed working here and am thankful that Chevron has paid for much of my training and education. Benefits are good and they have done a good job with progressive programs like M.A.R.C that has allowed for employees at all levels to have open, candid and supposedly "safe" conversations around bias thinking, non-inclusionary practices, and other adverse type of topics that have historically been swept under the carpet. It's a program that ideally will help with molding a better culture that will eliminate the "good 'ol boy" mentality in Oil & Gas industry.

    Cons

    Current internal hiring process/career development programs are not as inclusionary as it could be, specifically within the IT world. Too many "badly behaving" managers are being promoted and allowed to continue to bully or mistreat their direct reports. If you're an admin and have a brain and want to get promoted, stay away from the IT groups here.

    Chevron is a premiere company that stands by all of it's company values especially safety. When a manager believes in you and has high expectations of your work in a positive way, you learn, grow and you become a better employee/contractor.

    Cons

    working as a contractor; It would have been nice to have been hired on as an employee. Even as a contractor, I was proud to work there.
