I have been working at ExxonMobil

Pros

Decent pay, 401k match, Opportunities are there but you need to know where to find them, Benefits are decent - insurance etc.

Cons

NO bonuses
Pigeonholed quickly - fast riser or slow mover
Bureaucracy
No input into personnel moves, company decides what is best for you
Be prepared to live in Houston

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please listen to people. Stale midlevel management (my manager had the same job for 20 years). And why no bonuses?

    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.

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    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.
