Current Employee - Software Developer in Fairfax, VA

I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent work/life balance, lots of company-paid-for training and professional development opportunities, great people for the most part, stable company, good pay

Cons

Antiquated rating/ranking system, very bureaucratic and stuck in their ways, software developers get no respect and are treated as "second-class" by the majority of the non-IT employees, not "agile"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that your company wouldn't be able to run without your Computer Science people and put more effort into changing the culture that treats those individuals as lesser than the other organizations

    Former Employee - Environmental Manager in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Environmental Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highly competent people, good pay, pushed into "stretch" assignments, benefits are great, relocation package is top-notch, decisions are well thought out, ranking system keeps people on their toes and weeds out the bottom 10%

    Cons

    Not gay friendly, 10+ hour days 5-6 days per week, no work life balance, not enough diversity (most of the meetings I attended consisted of all men and mostly white men), ranking system causes competition amongst peers and prevents sharing of ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a gay-friendly policy so that your employees are not afraid of being fired for their sexuality. Hire a more diverse work team.

    Stable, large and predictable

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, great people, interesting colleagues, important work. Ethical employer with good benefits who won't bother you too much if you just show up each day and put in your time. Move you around enough to develop you, so the work doesn't get too boring.

    Cons

    I get the feeling that the less I ask questions the happier everyone is. Train smart enough people to do flawless work over and over and over again, and you'll have a great market leader. The ranking system creates a culture of blame, even among good people who genuinely want to be team players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving to the Woodlands was not a great move to retain young people. Nor is making those young people wait 10 years before they can send an email without manager approval. A little innovation would go a long way in making this place even better.
