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

Pros

Stability in income. Great benefits. Good group of people to work with, mostly nice people. Risk averse, lot of layers of management makes sure that the project that is eventually done is a project that is worth doing.

Cons

Large company that moves slowly. Lot of layers of management. Few people working and lot of people taking credit for their work. Painful to get projects done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut the fat in middle management. Senior management has some really good ideas that if implemented would make this company even greater. The ideas eerily resemble what the working class level people want to do and think is great. However, the middle management acts as a shock absorber leaving it difficult for any change to happen.

    Former Employee - Core Process Control Intern in Baytown, TX

    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company offers great pay and benefits. They also have a strong commitment to excellence and safety. A career at ExxonMobil offers the potential for lots of travel and career development. Expect to be challenged intellectually and learn on a daily basis. Also, everyone I have had the pleasure of working with is very outgoing and I didnt work with anyone I didn't like.

    Cons

    The downside of working at ExxonMobil is they tend to hire overachievers. This can be a good thing, but not when you desire a strong work/life balance.

    Pros

    Good experience. Nice people. Good for a resume. Well run company. Solid employee benefits. Overall an enjoyable and valuable experience

    Cons

    Tough to manage work and home life although that could be said of any job. Not a very challenging job although this could also be listed as a pro for some people.
