    Promotion are very limited,

    Current Employee - Operator  in  Houston, TX

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay is lots better then before, matching 7 percent in the 401 is a great benefit. The work is less wear and tear on my body then before.

    Cons

    No promotional opportunity, you can have a degree, supervisory background and still not know about a job opportunity until after they have promoted someone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets have a documented system for everyone instead of individual management discretion. Remove favoritism.

    Great Internship

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Large Corporation, very developed internship program, lots of benefits!

    Cons

    Not all internship opportunities are equal, it really depends on what company you are in if your experience is good.

    Current Employee - Analyst  in  Fairfax, VA

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and compensation, opportunity to develop new skills and experience various parts of the organization, including global assignments. Employees are well-trained, highly capable and often better-positioned for similar assignments when compared with employees from other companies.

    Cons

    Most employees are overworked, given constant management focus on efficiency and expense reduction. Work-life balance is thus very difficult given resulting high workload and demands. 40-hour work weeks are rare; 60-hour weeks are the norm. Significant focus on process and internal controls, though important to a point, draw attention away from running the business at times and reduce the ability to adapt to an ever-changing business environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Demand that senior executives model work-life balance to front-line employees for better morale, listen to and work with employees regarding personal considerations and allow the organization to be more flexible in meeting the needs of customers and end-consumers.

    Pros

    Good colleagues. Technology starting to step up with industry and be more open to risk. Depending manager, different considerations for work/life balance

    Cons

    Too much subjectivity and forced ranking system for employee assessment. Not as much people focus after merger. Information on career opportunities known by management only

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to review risk and consider level of controls that are required.
