Pros

ExxonMobil majority shareholder allows for global opportunity for some. Established processes. Hire for careers as opposed to positions. Working for the biggest and best instills sense of pride in employees.

Cons

Opportunities go to the most aggressive and outspoken, not necessarily the most knowledgeable or talented. Politics and bureaucracy can be exhausting. Who you know and who likes you the most seem to determine rankings and where you end up.

Advice to Management

Employees don't need to hear what you think they want to hear. Straightforward feedback without manipulation or spinning a story is best. Recognize talent that exists in employees that aren't engineers.

    Pros

    very High Calibre of employees. The interview process was very thorough, and they are quite selective. At the same time it was quite a bureaucratic process, with them strictly following a checklist

    Cons

    not enough focus put into alternative energy. Typical employee is the 'older, white male' but they are trying to change this demographic.

    Advice to Management

    alternative energy focus, a company like BP is doing a much better job of this

  2. conservative environment, poor advancement
