    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent salary, very knowledgable and experienced co-workers and subject matter experts. Rarely did I feel an answer to a question was more than a phone call away. Great opportunity to see the world. Conservative approach (as compared to others E&P operators) allows it be profitable and stable during downturns.

    Cons

    Rating and ranking systems don't always capture value individual employees bring to the organization. Bureaucracy of management systems can be frustrating and requires employees to understand intent of the systems rather than the letter of the law to be effective for managing the business.

    Advice to Management

    Consider using externally recognized training and certifications (e.g. PMP, Vibration Institute certification, etc) to build employee skills. Encourage transparency regarding employee performance to mid-level management so lower tier employees have reasonable expectations of how they're doing and what they can do to improve all year round.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    The interview began with a phone interview, then progressed to a on-site interview with several one-on-one meetings to assess personality fit, along with a technical presentation. The interview process was largely driven by the interviewee asking questions about the company. The interviewers seemed to place a lot of emphasis on company fit rather than simply technical skill. There were a lot of behavioral type questions, and the employees all seemed to enjoy working with the company.
