    A tale of two cities

    Software Developer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsVery relaxed atmosphere
    Many bright people
    Individual offices
    Job security

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you are former military....you'll like it here.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

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

    ConsHighly 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.

    Great place to start

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    Pros10 years in and still think its a great company. Not highest paying but rewarding longterm career.

    ConsLong term view of compensation

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

    Great people, but too many processes and very hierarchical

    Global Services (Current Employee) Houston, TX

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees suggestions. Allow employees to pursue their passion rather than mandate their career path.

    Great compensation, weak career development.

    Automotive Lubricants & Specialties (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsCompensation 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.

    ConsExxonMobil'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.

    Good Quality Engineering and Management at ExxonMobil

    Project Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

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

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

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

    Review

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat 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.

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

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

    Drill Rig manager

    Rig Engineer (Former Employee) Erie, PA

    ProsGood benefits
    Well-known company
    Seem to be very accommodating

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
