Pros

One of the best reasons is that I never have to worry about being laid off. They have a fantastic benefits package. It blows everyone elses benefits out of the water. And their retirement package is amazing. It's easy to retire a millionaire from here...even the little guys.

Cons

Managers are not all on the same page. Some people have a fantastic manager, open to new ideas, but others have an old, set in their ways manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to treat everyone here with the same amount of respect. We all went to college!

    Pros

    As most profitable public company in the world, it is an extremely stable company. If you do your job well, you don't have to worry about losing it. This company is not going to go out of business. The compensation is very fair starting out and raises typically are greater than inflation and the market. The full benefits package is excellent, as ExxonMobil is one of the few companies still giving a pension. As a huge company, you can do many different jobs in many different places in the world without changing employers (i.e. maintain your seniority, vesting, vacation, etc.).

    Cons

    There is no job posting system. You have some input into what kind of job you would like to do next, however, management frequently decides for you what your next assignment will be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open about personnel moves.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are probably the best reasons to work for Exxon. It is a company that takes things in a very process-oriented fashion, slow and steady, and you are encouraged to do your homework before pursuing an idea.

    Cons

    Beauracracy - too much paperwork, hoops, etc. Maybe this is expected from most big companies, but sometimes it seems that it impedes your ability to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push decision-making lower in the chain to give technical people more authority to make decisions.
