    Pros

    Very good work environment.
    Lot of facilities including food and transport.
    Less work load compared to any competitor
    Overall a very good organisation structure

    Cons

    Politics is more prominent and promotions and increments are based on politics but performances in maximum cases. Its a tough task to attain a new role one level ahead here in RBS.

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Profound concern for the individual: decent salaries, pension, retiree health, stock sharing plan, health benefits, educational funding, vacation seniority and work/life balance enabling alternate work schedules (allowing 3 day weekends). Great people with some phenomenal opportunities despite the often suffocating and burdensome processes we have to operate with. Otherwise a varied and stimulating workplace, I sincerely hope it can regain a most liked status.

    If you enjoy Houston, Texas, this is the company to work for.

    Cons

    We are an Energy Company, so working here will earn you an "I work for BIG OIL" demonic moniker with your outside friends! Overly burdensome business processes, sometimes excessive safety culture and extremist OE zealotry permeates to the furthest corners of the corporation (watch out for that paper cut). No question that we certainly should extol the virtue of human safety (clearly Chevron is the gold-standard here) but seriously how many times has the stop-work-authority been called OUTSIDE of a traditional hazardous working environment : refinery, rig or pipeline? That may be a pro or a con but either way it does add up the cost!

    We are BORG (pardon the Star Trek analogy) - numerous project decisions are sloowly made by a committee of peers resulting in a steep trending towards reduced features and mediocrity. Other are driven by a decision executive forcing solutions despite objections from the subject matter experts (in another Star Trek style : "the will of Landru").

    Severely retarded and even dysfunctional efficiency-at-all-costs executive directives. Mind-numbingly risk-averse/management-by-dashboard/tool/committee where all the lights are invariably green (despite the suspected turmoil underneath). It is all about delivering a measurable/sustainable process(rather than accepting a fast-fail), less about figuring out who is going to be engaged long-term to sustain it for you (no headcount, efficiency or budget line item for that). No recognition after-the-fact supporting exceptional personnel development or look-backs to the now senior managers who (while oblivious to reality in the pursuit of short-term efficiency) permeated a long-since-forgotten path of destruction and were promoted accordingly well beyond their worth or capability. This has a knock-on effect of demoralizing more insightful members of the workforce unwilling to foment a similar dis-functional type of behavior to elevate their own status!

    Finally, if you dislike living in Texas this is not going to be the company for you!

    Advice to Management

    This is still an OK place to work, with some slight tweaks it could be so very much more and return to the halcyon days of 5 star employee ratings. Encourage the more risk-averse to take more (non-hazardous area) chances, learn how to rapidly enable, prototype and educate via fast-fail and figure out how to share/socialize the results. Improve investment in technology futures. Quit with multitude of opco P&L reconciliation, the federated multi-operating/service company approach and get back to the a one-family company mantra! Clean house of the endless process measurement experts who are un-trainable in anything else. I firmly believe we have an exceptional president, his message and directives are clear and insightful but once we drop down a rung or two in the management structure the risk-averse deviation and misinterpretation for some operating companies begin to lose cohesion and sustainability.

    In other words, for the executive layers I strongly suggest that you : GROW A PAIR!
