Pros

Exxon is a profit driven company. They will retain, develop, and promote to maximize profit potential . If you can attain that level of thinking, then Exxon is a great company. The goal is to find where your talents will be used to the fullest.

Cons

Even though you hear the lip service of Exxon being family friendly, the company is only to the point where it makes money. The second downside is you see a lot of management people who should not be in their position or they are so burned out that they can no longer handle the stress that comes along with the job.

Advice to Management

The compnay must recruit better wage employees and train or replace management employees. Also, the company needs to kick the unions out.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good opportunities for advancement if you follow the rules and procedures and log in a lot of face time. Many languages on offer to learn for free. International team exposure. Interesting job and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Management respect for employees is non-existent. Management steals ideas and does not pass on credit. Face time gets promotions, not actual hard work or performance. No 360 feedback and little feedback in general. Poor salary in regards to responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your employees. Listen to what they have to say since they have experience in the field. Don't act arrogantly just because you received a promotion and don't feel threatened by others if they have ideas you did not think of.

    Current Employee - Exploration Analyst in Melbourne (Australia)
    Current Employee - Exploration Analyst in Melbourne (Australia)
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefit, job security, good brand name, I guess if you are engineer or geologist, that's a good company to start with.

    Cons

    You will never get promoted if you can't make yourself the "chosen" one within 3 years. Very political, process driven, lots of "loyal" employees and the only thing they know is "cover your ass".

    Advice to Management

    Top down communication need to be better channeled. The company is too slow. Need to change the organisational structure to get rid of all those hierachical barriers. No incentive for young employees as promotion takes forever.
