I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (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.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professionals are given freedom to do their jobs without interference; very dynamic pace; exposure to issues you'll not see anywhere else; pay and benefits are excellent

    Cons

    Many in management need to work on their people skills (a good technician isn't necessarily cut out to manage a staff)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin staffing is a frequent challenge

    Thanks for the feedback. Consistent, quality supervisor training is an initiative currently being worked in Human Resources.

    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (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.
