Thread regarding Chevron Corp. layoffs

Chevron is not a good employer

I don't care what some of the posters say, this company sucks. The only way I would consider it a good employer is if you only took into consideration the pay and ignored everything else. However, I can't ignore the toxic culture, expectations to do more work than any one person physically can achieve even during a 60+ hour week, low chances of advancement unless you're well connected or related, and so many other things that turn my days into living nightmares. If there wasn't for golden handcuffs, I'd be long gone.

I’m an office staff employee with the company for 27 years. I enjoy my current job, but I’ve had 3 supervisors and two managers roll through my department in the last 8 years. I’ve learned to not take on extra job duties. I’ve made that mistake with my two previous supervisors with no meaningful recognition or pay increase.

Why so much shade and animosity on the OP? Culture is decent and not toxic, majority of coworkers are good, but the workload comment is spot on. Only way to not work that much is to turn work away, but do not want to get dinged and be vulnerable at the next layoff.

Is this what they like to call “lower looping?”

@OP Nobody likes working for somebody else,

Show up, do what it says in the job description, then go home after eight hours. When you meet your short-term financial goals, leave for a better paying job.

If you are smart enough you work only 20 hrs a week, will be recognized for good work and get your pay check and benefits. There is no reason to fight for promotions or career advancement, as long as there is your pay check and 20hr work per week and have been recognized for good work, all is good. Obviously you are not that smart or you are way too lazy to do the work in 60 hours plus week.

To begin with "golden handcuffs" only applies to older and experienced employees with plenty of years under their belt who would lose pension & 401k vesting. You are not that, obviously from your rant. Therefore you have plenty of opportunity to drag up and you just choose not to and whine. And for some reason are incapable of doing the minimal possible to maintain employment, not that it is commendable to be a slacker. I would never stay at a place and waste my life away miserable including the case where I was in over my head and can't keep up with the minimal amount of duties in the time allotted. Nor could I sit around and do nothing, wasting my life away, simple because I could get away with it. Overpaid and incompetent are terms that come to mind.

Au contraire... Chevron is an excellent employer. You can 'disappear' into the system, do minimal work, never be challenged, and still draw an excellent salary and benefits, as long as you nod your head every now and then in meetings.

Employees have all the power in the current economy. Make your demands known then leave if they are not met.

Then leave? No one is pointing a g-n at your head. If you've got "golden handcuffs", sounds like you can't find better anywhere else. Is it lack of qualification, or would you like some cheese with that whine?
