    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere
    Many bright people
    Individual offices
    Job security

    Cons

    The company has a split personality because of the merger. There are two styles of management fighting for control. There is the traditional command and control style that you see at most large companies. And there is a more modern approach to management that is very refreshing to experience especially at a larger company.

    Unfortunately, it looks like command and control has the slight edge because the new campus is being designed with an "open" floor plan i.e. cubicle farms instead of respecting the private space of their professional employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide who you want to be and hopefully choose right (i.e. respect the creativity and professionalism of your employees)

    Pros

    Best training opportunities around. Top tier personell. Long term job security.....assuming you continue to meet expectations.

    Cons

    Highly regimented processes.....not a lot of room to excessive creativity. Bureaucratic and hierarchal organizational structure. ExxonMobil is in business to make money......not to have fun.

    Pros

    10 years in and still think its a great company. Not highest paying but rewarding longterm career.

    Cons

    Long term view of compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looks towards rewarding employees now rather than long term focus. Improve worklife balance. Eliminate pension and pay now and let each employee manage their future.

    Pros

    People want to see you succeed
    Very stable company and career
    Great compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Creativity is sucked out due to the mindless processes and lack of initiates coming from the average employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees suggestions. Allow employees to pursue their passion rather than mandate their career path.

    Great compensation, weak career development.

    Pros

    Compensation is amazing. You will not be able to find another job in any other field (given commensurate experience) that will compensate you as well as XOM will. Their 401k match is unheard of and in an uncertain economic environment, offering a pension is unthought of. However, XOM proudly offers a pension program for it's employees.

    Whenever a relocation is involved XOM will provide more than adequate funds to do so. If a relocation is required while within in the company, it is absolutely impossible to take a loss on selling your home.

    Cons

    ExxonMobil's company culture is the more conservative than anything I had imagined. While management advertises a good balance between work and personal life, the successful employees at the company do not have a personal life.

    Career development is too "old-school". You're ranked among peers and promotions are decided by a closed door committee. Job openings are not announced within in the company until they have been filled.

    Working for the company requires you to move every 3-5 years to take a new position. While it's possible to stay in the same position and location, doing so will hinder your ability for increased compensation.

    Pros

    Top quality Engineers and commitment to safety. Cost reduction as in other competitive companies is not a priority.

    Cons

    Management personnel could better communicate forecast and interface activiities plus important company events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New personnel should be introduced to the Company and the respective team rather than just dropped into an office.

    Pros

    Great company with great opportunities. There are vast possibilities for work within a career. The possibilities allow one to work on completely different jobs within the same company if desired.

    Cons

    Many hours are expected to be put in. There are great rewards but within them come sacrifices. One can expect many hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company that is lead from the best. Employees feel comfortable that they they will be taken care of in the long term.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Well-known company

    Long rotations
    Long time getting back information on interviews
    Rigs are an intense atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The interview process was good, but it took 4 months to hear back for the position I went for. More consideration for the interested applicant would be greatly appreciated.
