I have been working at ExxonMobil

Pros

Stable job and good potential career growth. in the company. Generally pays better than other industry. Promotes work life balance.

Cons

Every employee is ranked, which can be quite biased, depending on whether your boss favours you or not.. boring, mundane job, not much of a challenge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more overseas postings, instead of being stucked in the same work environment forever.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
