    Stellar financial performance but largely at the expense of a majority of its employees

    Pros

    Mostly sound Management Systems
    Safety Culture
    Global Opportunities
    Driven and talented work force
    Stable Company, Strong Brand

    Cons

    A bad evaluation early in one's career follows one throughout and very difficult, if not impossible to shake.
    Performance Evaluation (a.k.a. rank system) is designed to be objective but ends up failing (not reflective of performance or potential) a majority of its results-driven employees. Rank System only as objective as the people evaluating.
    For those who make it to higher executive/technical ranks, work-life balance becomes just a theoretical concept and really don't have to latitude to truly make meaningful personnel decisions - basically do what you are told i.e. "work within the system"
    Profit always myopically placed above employee's well-being and job satisfaction. Company ends up loosing in the long run if this trend is not curtailed. A right answer is a balance between the two.
    Inflexible and risk-averse culture
    Pay can be uncompetitive at times but longer term balances out with competition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is loosing a lot of good people who end up succeeding at other cultures or companies. Warrants taking a closer look why this is because everyone who gets hired here are very driven, have high IQs, and most of the time have had substantial accomplishments prior to/and at ExxonMobil. Do not get rid of the pension otherwise, from an employee perspective, total renumeration will become sub par relative to industry.
