      Good company with good benefits

      Pros

      -Great benefits, awesome matching program and they have a pension -Good work life balance, 9/80s where you get every other friday off -Currently you can work remotely and there is an understanding of the pandemic and the severity of it -Culture emphasis diversity and inclusion, volunteer and Employee network involvement -You can easily move to different job roles every 2 - 3 years

      Cons

      -Constant reorganizations/lay offs. Went through 3 rounds of layoffs within 7 years -certain organizations / teams have varying culture - where some may have more conservative/old school mentality -a lot of IT management are extremely high level and cannot necessarily communicate restructuring value or new IT culture -a lot of dead weight (prior 2020 layoffs), leading to the bogging down of moving projects forward -Networking is extremely important, and it's more about "who you know" and less of the value of work you bring (this is true in any company you work for)

      Used to be great!

      Pros

      The only pro now is great work/life balance. We did have great benefits but that changed in 2015.

      Cons

      Very low pay for the job. An average DSM makes roughly 120k-150k. Other companies are 200k+. The benefits are now horrible to keep up dividends for shareholders. Old timers said the company was lower paying but had job security compared to other O&G jobs, not anymore. Layoffs every 3-4 years for field staff. The field will have promotion freezes and layoffs but all the office staff sits safely in their positions or even promotions amid field layoffs. Finally they are so woke for diversity and inclusion that they discriminate against white males. The company went from one of the best to work for to one of the worst. Chevron is a typical woke, liberal, California company.

      A Slowly Sinking Ship

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are a lot of resources to learn and expand your toolset. Great work-life balance and 9/80 schedule. Compensation for extra hours worked, even as a salaried employee Lots of great benefits like 401K match, paternity/maternity leave, bonuses, Refining is by far one of the most complex manufacturing processes, and it's fun to learn from a purely engineering perspective

      Cons

      They pay you the same no matter where you work in the US. Terrible for California, great for middle of nowhere Mississippi. Middle management is generally out of touch with how the world has changed and do a bad job of aligning incentives and good work. Career progression is slow, stable, and steady, like it's the 1950s or something. Doesnt feel like good performance is rewarded. Everyone is just collecting a paycheck. There is no passion for what you do (I mean, it is oil and gas). It feels like the older managers and generation are just trying to get to retirement. There's not much for people less than 10 years experience. Attrition is horrible. Local culture is a good old boys club.
