Morale is at super low levels. BCG has been in the building like for ever. It is the uncertainty which is the most unnerving. Also all along the messaging has been super confusing- perhaps deliberate. Management was saying all the time - oh this is... read more

interest rate rises and lump sum erosion

I estimate a .5% increase in interest rates reduces the lump sum 6%. This reduction could take 6 months of working to recover if rates do not increase further. In the current rate increase staircase, today may be the peak lump sum for people with 20... read more

Best CVX company car?

Who has the best Chevron-provided company car? I hear in Africa all expats get a fancy leather-wrapped SUV of some sort. Same thing in Latin America, only armored. Those things must cost a pretty penny. I heard Canada gets nothing basically. We... read more

Better to leap?

A buddy of mine left CVX with 20 years and was able to get his new employer to keep him whole on pension (especially) but also 401K and vacation. Financially it is equivalent to staying at CVX. But, he likes the new place a whole lot more and they... read more
