    Rude customers, sometimes you can't please everyone. But it doesn't hurt to try.

    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, co-workers are very nice. Projects vary and are interesting. The position is what you make of it. New employees get straight down to work. You can always ask your co-workers in case you have any questions, there is in an open-door policy, where anyone can approach anyone else. All this in a very informal atmosphere where people call each other by their first names.

    Cons

    Entry positions are tough to come by, with many employees coming in with substantial experience already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and maintain junior staff. This will breed loyalty and subject matter expertise, rather than only hiring from outside.

    Pros

    Working with smart people is the best benefit. Additionally, the company does not skimp on international cross functional team and traveling to international locations to work with global counterparts is a huge plus. The maternity leave is very generous versus other companies as is the flexibility with unpaid leave and returning part time for a period.

    Cons

    No control / limited over your career as everything is done in secret and new positions can be foisted on you two days before you start them. Work life balance is scoffed at. Paternal leave is non existent and the gap makes female employees using the program look weaker. Moving from DC area to Houston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make job moves more transparent and move towards allowing employees to bid on jobs

    Pros

    Salary is great. Work days are different each day with new challenges. Flexible schedule as long as you are taking care of your business I think is a fair

    Cons

    Many negative people that love talking about conspiracies and how others are unfairly getting promoted. Spend more time doing this than working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent and give low performers the closer they so desperately need.
