I have been working at ExxonMobil

Pros

Research freedom relatively high compared to other industries & competitors
High caliber colleagues (technically and morally)
Safest place on earth
Very stable

Cons

Ranking process is highly political, not based on performance or impact
Pay is 'just enough to keep you' according to Senior Management
Employees not valued by management
No good locations (e.g., Houston, Houston, Houston)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees are human beings. The ranking process is biased and discourages 70% of the workforce and makes them despise what otherwise would be a great company (Note: this comment comes from someone ranked in the top 1/3).

    Good for a few years, but quickly grows stagnant.

    Pros

    Good experience with a well known company. If you put a lot of work into it, you can build a very nice resume after a few years.

    Cons

    There are little to not growth opportunities, no matter how competent you are. It feels very stagnant and the environment is extremely negative. Management gives the impression that they couldn't care less about your career or goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I realize there isn't much management can do to move people, but they could try to give the impression that they are trying to move you, and it would be nice to see outside job postings and opportunities.

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    You got to learn stuff that applied to other good jobs like handling money and dealing with customers. They were very flexible with hours and what not.

    Cons

    Would never get a raise. Never get promotions. Hard work would go unnoticed. Co-workers were incompetent. Management was terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Advice to owner: fire management.
