    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Chevron part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very people focussed. Great benefits package (pension, private health care). American culture - early starts and "do as you're told, don't ask questions mentality".

    Cons

    Too nice at times - no consequences for people who don't deliver or behave badly, so you can wonder at times why do I bother? Senior managers become too friendly with direct reports leading to favouritism. You can get on if you buy your boss a bottle of wine for his birthday. Part time work discouraged even for mothers returning from maternity leave.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to ask questions. Why are we doing this?

    Pros

    Benefits are good, US centric culture - good if you like that sort of thing. Flexible working and high degree of integrity. Final salary pension and share scheme.

    Cons

    Commercially unadventurous. Cyclical nature of the industry means reorganizations and potential divestment of the business unit will happen every 3-5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Take risks and think about growth, especially in the Downstream.
