    I worked at Chevron full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent salary, work/life balance and working conditions. Equal opportunities for all employees, especially if you were willing to relocate globally.

    Cons

    Was made redundant, company was brutal in its decision making process and put everyone through a scoring process. little subjectivity but conversely, the manager could sway a decision in favour of those that they want to retain.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone wants to move their family around the world. It is important also to have a solid, committed workforce that is locally based.

    I have been working at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Excellent remuneration package and always treated with respect as an employee.

    Cons

    Coming through the graduate scheme, it was not what it was promised to be and quite often the graduates were used as a more experienced discipline engineer rather than being supervised through several different roles to build a wide range of competencies.

    Advice to Management

    Make your thinking visible and don't be scared to be speak the truth. Chervon have a reputation for being the nice guy however this does not always work in thier best interests. Becoming more agressive will drive better performace from contractors on project execution and delivery.

    I have been working at Chevron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Reputable major oil and gas company, support given for external or online training, flexible working e.g. compressed working week

    Cons

    Middle management facilitate nepotism, favouritism and ‘old boys’ network’ despite resent efforts by corporate leadership to instil ‘Inclusion and Diversity’. Way too many traders considering the equity portfolio. False recruitment strategy - open positions are not ‘open’; the successful candidate is typically pre-selected and groomed before the hiring process. Low morale due to lack of movement in careers, no... promotions and women feeling disenchanted.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management in San Ramon need to understand why so many people in the London office are discontented with their local management.
