Great compensation, weak career development.

Pros

Compensation is amazing. You will not be able to find another job in any other field (given commensurate experience) that will compensate you as well as XOM will. Their 401k match is unheard of and in an uncertain economic environment, offering a pension is unthought of. However, XOM proudly offers a pension program for it's employees.

Whenever a relocation is involved XOM will provide more than adequate funds to do so. If a relocation is required while within in the company, it is absolutely impossible to take a loss on selling your home.

Cons

ExxonMobil's company culture is the more conservative than anything I had imagined. While management advertises a good balance between work and personal life, the successful employees at the company do not have a personal life.

Career development is too "old-school". You're ranked among peers and promotions are decided by a closed door committee. Job openings are not announced within in the company until they have been filled.

Working for the company requires you to move every 3-5 years to take a new position. While it's possible to stay in the same position and location, doing so will hinder your ability for increased compensation.

    Pros

    Great pay, interesting & smart people, somewhat flexible schedule, respectful managers.

    Cons

    Lunch selection is not diverse or healthy, physical work environment is unpleasant, ranking system is unfair and secretive, very bureaucratic. Changing positions is almost impossible. Not much vacation...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and smell the 21st Century and adapt your ways to the ever changing world. You're still stuck in the 1800's.

    Pros

    Largest Oil company in the world, so there is job security. Great Pay but no Profit Sharing or Bonuses, Good Benefits, 401k,etc.

    Cons

    Little space for advancement, once you're in a position it is really hard to move out depending on your work area. Management isn't that great, expect a job, not a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company to work for, more POSITIVE interaction between employees and management is needed. General environment regarding safety is outstanding, and it is a great pace to work for once you get past the politics.
