      Work life balance is respected and encouraged. Work is interesting and collaboration is generally open.


      Like many corporations, Chevron is bending the knee to the "Social Justice" movement. This means that the workforce is being atomized and pitted against itself. Reference Chevron's press releases from earlier this year crowing about how personnel reductions at upper levels had disproportionately affected white men. This trend can be linked to some large investors very loudly proclaiming a focus on so-called "ES&G" metrics. This also brings about an irrational focus on "going green". Up until a year or so ago, I was proud to see Chevron was resisting the industry trend of mouthing the "Carbon is bad" mantra. This has flipped and quickly in the last year. Terrible for morale
