I have been working at ExxonMobil

Pros

Good Retirement at age 55, Job Security, Good Pay

Cons

Overtime is all the time and mandatory, they do not assist you when you need time off, Contract is up every 3 years risking potential strike or lockout, you are treated horribly, you work nights/weekends/holidays/days = 12-16 hour rotating shifts, you are put in "catch 22" scenarios on a daily basis, and with 10 supervisors telling you to do different things it makes work harder than it should be, the job is dangerous, and if something happens to you they find a way to make it your fault! Good Luck!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You'll have better production & reliability if your workers want to be here. Treat them better and make there job easier rather than creating more red tape on a daily basis to protect yourselves. I also believe that Exxon Mobil is a great Corporation but certain locations are better than others to work at. If you want to be happy here, do not be a Process Operator.

    Difficult to move around. Little feedback in possibilities for either lateral movement or responsibility increase.

    Pros

    Management generally respectful to employees, although contractors still can find it difficult to 'integrate' with 'coworkers'. Flex time is one of the best things they have done (ability to be flexible with work hours).
    Work environment is very relaxed (IT network). (Most) Employee environment is generally welcoming and interesting to be around. Teamwork good.

    Cons

    IT personnel (network admins) not having admin rights to their own laptops as a given. Imagine being unable to do a job because you dont have the drivers installed for a USB cable (to console cable, laptop didn't have DB-9 serial port...)

    Biggest problem was overbearing restriction in work duties. Read only access is given to network techs who support the 'customers'. (No port VLAN changes, etc.). VERY inefficient and demoralizing to employees, especially those who had their rights taken away when the change first happened. Also greatly increased downtime of 'customers' by making techs unable to
    make port config changes instantly (must submit request up).

    Contractors have been treated better recently, but lack of ease to become permanent hired was not what I expected from the "contract-to-hire" description on contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and don't let other groups get in the way of getting what your group needs. Don't give your group more responsibilities while at the same time taking away necessary tools (such as Telnet write access). It is okay to not know anything about IT, if you can at least listen to your employees when they tell you what needs to happen. It is your job to make things happen, not just blindly give orders.

    Pros

    the pay is above average, he management is honest for the most part, good business ethethis but not straightforward with emloyees. good office environment, private offices not cubicles

    Cons

    Computer science people just carry water for the engineers. All decision making is the engineers, they are better paied as well. Maganement (line supervisors) are rewarded for building the career of one or two people, the rest be damed, no oppertunity at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone has talent that can be used. Anyone can be a leader in the area they are strong in. Don't just single out one person and give them all the oppertunity
