I worked at ExxonMobil

Pros

A great to place to get your first 2-5-10 years of experience, stellar quality of people, ethical, knowledgeable superviosrs, abundance of in-house knowledge and expertise in every area of the law and great willingness to mentor. In all, a perfect environement to learn proper client interaction etiquette and hone legal skills. A very professional atmosphere and a lot of autonomy early on in your career.

Cons

Plan on working 60+ hour weeks, with work days stretching across global time zones. Lots of lateral movement and cross-training with few opportunities for upward movement. Couple that with zero bonuses and modest, mostly inflation-based raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing says "we aprpeciate you" like a good year end bonus.

    Pros

    Corporation is profitable, provides some stability
    401K plan at 6% match
    Old-fashionned pension plan
    People who work there- intelligent and professional

    Cons

    Medical insurance very expensive
    Annual ranking systems of employees by local management with no pre-set standards, so you never know how you will be judged nor by what standards. No management by objectives. Ranking system is very political.
    Constant lay-offs since 2002, mainly aimed at Americans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation for rank and file. The golden top 10% couldn't run the company or get any work done without them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    This company has a very competitive work environment which helps contribute to the overall success of the company. I would highly recommend it as a place to start a career.

    Cons

    It is a large corporation and therefore it can be difficult to advance easily. It also governed by many procedures and processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership seems to be very strong. The company takes a very conservative approach to things and I would recommend it.
