    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

    Pay check
    Looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Every year you could make less than the year before if you are a contractor.
    Last year they cut our pay seven percent, mid contract.
    Management gives safety lectures that a 10 year old would find condescending.
    You get a new manager every two years.
    Don't expect opportunity for advancement,
    You have to follow so many ill conceived processes to get the simplest task accomplished.
    Hard work goes unrewarded.
