Working at ExxonMobil has been a great experience and afforded opportunities I could not have anticipated.

Cost Engineer (Current Employee)
Beaumont, TX

I have been working at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe stability of the com and safety culture are by far the most attractive aspects of the job. There are lots of career opportunities for those who are driven and understand the system and culture of the company.

ConsForced ranking and lack of job postings are by far the biggest down side. It takes focused alignment in order to ensure what the company wants is what the employ wants.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement a 9-80 work week.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Exxon Mobil as an intern

ProsExxonMobil is a good company to work for. They take very good care of their employees, and the compensation/benefits are excellent.

ConsIt can be stressful if you don't know how to manage your workload. Sometimes (rarely) you may have to work a 50 hr or more week.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

For interns: good projects, high expectations

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Exxon Mobil as an intern

ProsInterns are usually given decent projects and you are payed very well

ConsSometimes the bar is set too high. There is a huge focus on the way you present yourself rather than the actual work you do

Ten years with the world's largest company

ExxonMobil IT - Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 8 years

ProsExxonMobil offers a corporate training and education process that is unmatched. Soft Skills and Technical training classes are offered to match each level of your career. If you are so inclined, teamwork and leadership opportunities are always available. ExxonMobil IT frequently moves resources into new and challenging assignments to help grow their career and skill sets.

ConsLarge companies are forced to be procedurally driven. Because of this, there is a fairly rigid process or method to move up in the ranks. If this formula is not followed, the opportunities will be quickly offered to those who fit the mold.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lose sight of your smartest team members as they will stray if they are not challenged and rewarded.

Great Intern Program

-Excellent coordination of program
-Flex time

Cons-Not always busy, but sometimes very long hours
-Company culture is very tight
-High level of security is an inconvenience

Great until they left the US market.

Field Systems Specialist (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood compensation, room to grow if interested in management. Very structured but still open to new ideas. Very good safety culture.

ConsBig company inertia. It was difficult to find out what kind of opportunities there were in other divisions. Rating and ranking seemed arbitrary at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. The only thing I would change would be the paths to other opportunities inside the company. I worked for the CORS division which no longer exists in the US so this may not be an issue anymore.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Excellent internships- real work, great assimilation and networking

Procurement (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Exxon Mobil as an intern for less than a year

ProsAs an intern, your work is as valuable as everyone else's. You have the tools you need to learn and are expected to make a meaningful impact. The entire experience is a "try out" to be hired full-time

ConsBig corporations can be extremely slow and procedural. Expect simple tasks to take longer than necessary. This also makes the company naturally more resistant to change

Best Employer to this date.

Sales Clerk/Office Manager (Current Employee)
Portage, WI

I have been working at Exxon Mobil full-time for less than a year

Pros-Good Positive Owner (This could be a con if you have a very poor leader)
-Fair starting pay. (I did start off at $8.50, but I'm request $11.00 an hour due to being an office manager now.(Not Accepted or denied for now, waiting to hear anything back.))
-If you work hard and try your hardest, you can be promoted within a year.

Cons-If there is too many store owners that may cause you to have to wait up to a month to get a promotion or wage increase if you request one.
-Not all employers at gas stations will pay for your beer licence.
-Very few promotions to earn money (This is a corporate issue)

Advice to Senior ManagementHave one person manage all promotions and wage increases. Good job elsewise.
