Pros

Exxon is a great company to work for in terms of available experiances. They have operations worldwide and in most cases, you get to go to the location you work on. I also feel like my work is meaningful. I get to directly track how it affects the bottom line.

Cons

The downside of exxon is their annual employee assesment process. They rank all of their employees and assign you to a bucket (middle, low or upper). While this is a benfit in my mind because it give direct feedback on your performance, the process acts like more of black box because you are unaware of who the individuals are that are number 1 and what they do differtent to get there. I feel like a lot of politics play in to it at some point.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on keeping on. They generally do a pretty good job and are approachable in my opinion.

    Pros

    The compensation is decent. That's about it.

    Cons

    Does not inspire any creativity, huge bureaucracy, no fairness to the ranking system. "Performance Review" will be based on how much you kiss up to your boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change outdated HR policies.

    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!
