    not what i expected

    Subsea Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    Prossmart capable employees that are a pleasure to work with
    really strong safety culture
    very good technical capability
    good benefits and perks

    Consthe rating process is a black box
    hardly any influence as to what your next job can be
    salary treatments are not fair and sub par
    no 9-80s
    not capable of making timely quick decisions, middle management afraid to take ownership and make decisions
    very slow to move and react as a company
    frustrating for someone who like to get things done rather than sit around and talk about it
    seems to be alot of wasted effort on processes
    there are groups dedicated to maintaing process and all they know is thier process and they know nothing about the real "work" so processes are not applied in a "fit-for-purpose" way

    Advice to Senior Managementchange ranking and rating process
    value your employees on performance and productivity and contribution rather than other unimportant things
    learn to take better financial risks

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't stay too long

    IT Support (Current Employee) Fairfax, VA

    ProsPay check
    Looks good on a resume.

    ConsEvery year you could make less than the year before if you are a contractor.
    Last year they cut our pay seven percent, mid contract.
    Management gives safety lectures that a 10 year old would find condescending.
    You get a new manager every two years.
    Don't expect opportunity for advancement,
    You have to follow so many ill conceived processes to get the simplest task accomplished.
    Hard work goes unrewarded.

    Intern

    Extremely Subjective Performance Reviews

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe only good thing about ExxonMobil is that you can include a recognazible and respected company in your resume for future job searches.

    ConsHorrible system of performance appraisal. It is extremely subjective in the sense that it is based more on how well you get along with your supervisor than on the achievement of your objectives.
    Narrow minded management.
    Management does not provide a clear career development plan for employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees! Who better to tell you what's wrong and how to fix it. Get off your high horse for once in your life, stop being arrogant and acknowledge that it is not a perfect company and that employees actually have great ideas to improve job climate within the organization.

    Working for ExxonMobil may be a good experience but is one of those you never want to have again.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood opportunities for advancement if you follow the rules and procedures and log in a lot of face time. Many languages on offer to learn for free. International team exposure. Interesting job and friendly co-workers.

    ConsManagement respect for employees is non-existent. Management steals ideas and does not pass on credit. Face time gets promotions, not actual hard work or performance. No 360 feedback and little feedback in general. Poor salary in regards to responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn from your employees. Listen to what they have to say since they have experience in the field. Don't act arrogantly just because you received a promotion and don't feel threatened by others if they have ideas you did not think of.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
