I worked at Imperial Oil

Pros

Great project and work process experience.

Cons

Lots of bureaucratic/red tape, lack of resources and lack of management support when things don't go according to the plan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get more resources. Get the managers with TRUE Leadership qualities who can take a stand for their front line employees in the line of fire, rather than passing the bucket back to the lower cadre.
Due to the lack of resources the procedures are sometimes not followed properly in order to get the work done (meet deadlines) and the managers knowingly ignore it as they would like to get the work completed. However, when its caught up in the internal audit system or some other way, the blame is squarely put on the employee for not following as per protocol.

    I worked at Imperial Oil

    Pros

    Excellent training, lots of responsibility at an early stage in your career, room for movement within Exxon Mobil, reasonable compensation

    Cons

    Force fit ranking amongst peers. Purely results orientated, less interested in how you achieved those results. Too risk adverse, limits progress of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your evaluation system. Force fit ranking does not motivate employees or provide long term incentive for older employees who only have more to offer.
