On the average how long did it take you to move to your next PSG. At what CO % should I request for a promotion to the next PSG and when is the best time to request for this?

If you struggle with common high school level English vocabulary, then "promotion at Chevron" is definitely not "an automatic".
If you are part of the BU click promotion at Chevron is an automatic.
Just being a High Performer Employee alone will not cut the mustard at Chevron.
Depends on your competency and who your manager is. I would suggest the latter has the greater impact on your career. I have seen engineers careers stagnate under poor managers and then take off once they change organisation or Business Units.
Wow, so now people think its petty and selfish for someone to ask questions about career progression and career ladder advancement. People will be promoted this spring. People will also likely retire this spring. People may be laid off this spring. People will relocate for new positions this spring. Chevron has a business to run and that includes the entire spectrum of personnel management. Layoffs are a part of the business cycle. Re-orgs are occasionally needed. Time to accept it. There is no equality among the ranks when it comes to advancement, position and placement. Its a competition, clear and well defined.
Good question. Seems very petty and selfish. Some of those same people may be unemployed in the next few months.
Why people are still talking about promotion when layoffs are coming?
Even for top performers its slow AF..... One of the biggest issues of the company IMO as talent who actually work and deliver leave for greener pastures, better development and more opportunities.
The more older (50+) employees that Chevron lays off, the faster the promotion rate is for the younger employees. This industry is shrinking, not growing, so keep that in mind as you get older and your pay increases. You may end up with a cost cutting target on your back.
future leaders get promoted once a year or two until PSG 26-27. then it might slow down, unless they're up for being a VP or MD. then it jumps to 40. so on average, their promotion rate is about once a year.
Depends on your goals. I came in with a PhD as a 23 and departed 25 years later as a 26. So for me it was once every 8-10 years, and I was ok with that pace because I enjoyed my job. You can do better on a management track, if that is what you like working on. Brown nosing works well at Chevron, if you do not mind the smell.
Not enough information is given to respond in a meaningful manner. Is this a placed position or career ladder or exempt or non-exempt? 3-4 years could not be the correct answer, depending on the type of position.
Everything is based on your abilities and the needs of the organization.
Over 7 years so far at the same PSG. Have been informed I am getting a 1 ranking this year but still no promotion.
Every three years if performance is strong. Your CO should be over 100%.
It is the norm to expect promotion every 3 to 4 years as long as you are doing a good job, that request should come at your final PMP in October. Sometimes if you are exceptionally good, i.e. get two 1s in a row you get pro.otion sooner
