    Pros

    O&G industry pay is good.

    Cons

    Chevron no longer embodies the culture it used to. Safety and employee satisfaction and retention are not high priorities. Too many stupid cost cutting measures that don’t actually save money, they only make employees lives hard. Work life balance is an afterthought. They already picked out their pets, who are typically the most useless and unethical people they have, for leadership and other career opportunities. The rest of us doing real contributions are treated like garbage and constantly harassed and threatened with unemployment. Unbearably thick layer of useless middle managers and team leads slave drivers forcing us to do waste work.

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

    Pros

    Excellent moving package if you are willing to completely uproot your home life, kids and spouse to move for more money. Good base salaries if you are willing to forget all ethics and be a "my way or the highway" supervisor or employee.

    Cons

    The company advertises multiple career opportunities but then management or supervisors limit career growth for their departments and direct reports. Chevron brands themselves as a diverse and equal opportunity employer, yet supervisors do not preach what they say and will limit their employees in order to keep good people in their team instead of letting them excel in other job opportunities within the company. Many supervisors have a control issue. If you say one thing, they will make you do the opposite just so they can be right. I have heard from peers that the HR hotline number is useless, only creates more trouble and should never be used even though the company promotes the hotline. Inflexible work schedule. The company promotes work life balance yet the decisions rest in your supervisor's personnel interpretation of work life balance. No room for working remotely and your vacation plans are expected to be changed per the supervisor's request for internal fictitious corporate deadlines.
