I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

As a summer intern, I was able to work on significant projects, learn about the industry, the equipment, and the company from the best and the brightest. It was my only of 4 internships where I really felt like the people I worked with were all competent, good at communicating, and hard working.

Cons

As a full-time employee, it would have been hard to stand out amoungst the best and the brightest... and the most competitive.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - compensation
    - compensation
    - compensation
    - that is the only pro.

    Cons

    - extremely traditional and old school. job openings do not get publicly announced.
    - promotions happen through a "secret" committee.
    - forced ranking for performance management
    - no regard to work/life balance. I was working 80-100 hours a week. 40 in the field and 40 in the office.
    - forced relocations. you can negotiate to stay in your current geography but promotions will not happen if you choose this.
    - you feel like you work for exxonmobil. you never feel like you ARE exxonmobil
    - no published org chart

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - it's 2013. publish an org chart. stop being so secretive
    - let people have more control on their career development. quit forcing people to move.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The stability of the com and safety culture are by far the most attractive aspects of the job. There are lots of career opportunities for those who are driven and understand the system and culture of the company.

    Cons

    Forced ranking and lack of job postings are by far the biggest down side. It takes focused alignment in order to ensure what the company wants is what the employ wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a 9-80 work week.
