    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of people to do the job and willing to do things right. The company will make the resources available to do things correctly.

    Cons

    Very specialized in duties. Almost like an assembly line. Very hard to see the big picture of where your job fits into the whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide the employees some some room to work. While there may be some money saved in putting people in a rabbit hutch, it does not improve efficiency.

    Current Employee - Reliability Engineer in Beaumont, TX

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefit packages are wonderful. Time-off policy is okay. Great company to work for if you are a mechanical or chemical engineer, specially for chemical engineers.

    Cons

    No career path for electrical engineers. Ranking system is flawed because hard work is not taken into account. If you show a perception of doing work (a lot of face-time), your ranking will increase even though you did not output a lot of work. A lot of young Supervisors are very inexperienced so your ranking may decrease if he/she does not adequately recognize or appreciate your hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Repair the ranking system. Build a career path or provide opportunities for employees, who are not chemical engineers. Develop solid Supervisors.

    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Beaumont, TX

    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a summer intern, I was able to work on significant projects, learn about the industry, the equipment, and the company from the best and the brightest. It was my only of 4 internships where I really felt like the people I worked with were all competent, good at communicating, and hard working.

    Cons

    As a full-time employee, it would have been hard to stand out amoungst the best and the brightest... and the most competitive.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The stability of the com and safety culture are by far the most attractive aspects of the job. There are lots of career opportunities for those who are driven and understand the system and culture of the company.

    Cons

    Forced ranking and lack of job postings are by far the biggest down side. It takes focused alignment in order to ensure what the company wants is what the employ wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a 9-80 work week.

    Former Employee - Electrical and Instrumentation Engineer in Beaumont, TX

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    If you're interested in chemical engineering, EM is the ideal place for you. The whole industry focuses around chemical engineering with lots of support groups to help you accomplish your job. As another engineer, you play primarily a support role. While the compensation is great, the role changes little when advancing outside of chemical engineering. In essence, you always support chemical engineers, but some people like this aspect of the job because you're always working with people. Again, great benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Not the greatest location. Beaumont is a big city with enough activity to keep you entertained, however you shouldn't expect the grandeur of a stereotypical big city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your colleagues and give credit where credit is due, especially when doing performance reviews of your staff.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Very stable company financially. Highly aware and protective of their company brand and integrity. Very unlikely to ever be an "Enron."

    Cons

    Such a large company, they are unable to be nimble in the marketplace nor can they easily foster an entrepreneurial spirit among the ranks. Performance and ranking system fosters inter-employee competitiveness by people seeking personal credit in the quest for top ranking; this disables collaborative culture development where better productivity and superior answers can usually be better developed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not all about YOUR career. Promote those that deliver instead of stepping on those that deliver you.
