"They are trying to improve, but still have along way to go. They are very traditional/old school in most of their policies and are still very male-dominated. The new CEO seems genuinely interested in making things better, but at a company the size of Chevron, change takes a lot of time. You can take up to 6 months unpaid maternity leave (though this isn't very helpful for those of us who are the main source of family income). "

"Depends on the role, but overall the company is very traditional and rigid when it comes to schedules/amount of face time (they seem nervous by the idea of remote working). Luckily, you can work a 9/80 schedule (have every other Friday off), which can be great for families."

"There was a ton of opportunity for a young woman engineer here, especially to move up. But the prevailing culture is that women ignore micro-aggressions and even behaviors such as being catcalled or excessively pardoned when men are cursing. The industry may have been a lot worse in the old days but now we should evolve and not tolerate as much bs as the women with boots on the ground often experience."

"I've worked here for 5 years, and there is only 2 other female that do this job. The "standards" that they hold females to compared to males is outlandish. Once I did a "photo shoot" for there "we empower women in the field" and they made me change, wear certain clothing, while the male in the shots got to wear what he wanted. They expect you to lift and pull more than you weigh but men can be so heavy that they can't even walk the distance of a line. Pay is great but it is more than tough on the body, and isn't worth the amount of sexual innuendo that you will expected to put up with."

"I worked there for a few years as a contractor. They rarely hire contractors. I don't recommend that anyone contracts for more than a year at any company.

"I worked here for a few years in Corporate HR. My advice to other women is to pay attention to building better relationships with HR senior management. A lot of office politics. Unfortunately, often women in HR leadership roles at Chevron Corporation are not supportive of other women. Thus, networking and relationship building is key to job fulfillment and success."

"I have worked here for 10 years. On my first day I was very concerned about whether I would be able to prove myself and I started out working way too many hours and stressed out over very tiny mistakes. All of that was unnecessary; simply doing my job to the best of my ability was enough to earn the respect of my supervisors and most of my peers. The extra work hours were not needed and now I am comfortable with just getting my tasks done and, if they are done early, going home to spend some more time with my kids! One important thing I have learned is that you have to filter some men's behavior based on the environment they grew up in. My company has a very diverse population and some of the men (particularly those from the Middle East and India) will automatically dismiss a woman's ideas and cannot be persuaded of a woman's value based on her accomplishments. Fortunately, I have never seen a man of this type promoted to a supervisory position at this company."
