    Good experience.

    Sales Analyst (Former Employee) Bentonville, AR

    ProsExcellent company, great benefits and pay.

    ConsVery unfair rating and ranking system, very corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the evaluation system to be more fair and equitable for all. Employees should have opportunity to apply for job openings within company website instead of only through your manager, who may to be unfair and you leave company without other opportunities.

    Positive experience Overall but with a lot of stress placed on you daily to preform or leave

    Project Management and Execution (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsProfessional work atmosphere. Amount of team support given on a project is pretty good. If you are in the "club" you could get to work all over the world.

    ConsSo far the employees are professional and overall intelligent. However the expectations are very high and often times unrealistic, leading to large amounts of stressful situations. Advancement for younger employees is often times controlled by managers with not much experience in managing people. When you first start working they will start determining the highest you will ever move up in the company, which makes it hard to break some preconceived mold they put you in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever stop investing in your employees, and always give raises, which often times are the only way to know for sure if you are Doing a good job or not. Be more open with your teams and less of an elite attitude toward others would go a long way toward relationship building.

    Exxonmobil

    Information Technology at ExxonMobil

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsPays well, opportunity for travel

    ConsVery bureaucratic and boring. Focus on process rather than product. Best to do nothing rather than do something wrong. The secret to success is to be totally hands off. Overrun with administrators and advisors. For every person doing work, there is someone watching them. Over the years they have become erratic. At one point they set long term strategies, now they seem to swing wildly. One day it's an extreme process orientation, next day, cut costs, next day security and controls.
