    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think upper management actually does a pretty great job

    Competitive work environment due to performance ranking method. No 9/80 work schedule here...

    Current Employee - Engineering Specialist in Baytown, TX

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable, consistent employer with a long-term business focus. Re-emphasizing US Gulf Coast growth, especially in commodity petrochemicals. Personnel and operations safety is highly emphasized.

    Cons

    Rating and ranking system is extremely opaque and arbitrary. No clear way to self-direct career path, especially in the engineering specialist disciplines. No 9/80 schedule option.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a job posting system that at least makes employees aware of other assignment possibilities, as is done in almost all other companies in Exxon's class.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time

    Pros

    Choose your career path. Compensation is very competitive. High performance is rewarded handsomely. Some positions allow you to create your own work.

    Cons

    Forced ranking system. Some positions carry a lot of stress and long working hours; weekends and nights occasionally. Some employees get by on how well they are liked instead of performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the comp time vs. overtime policy. Could push hard working employees into the arms of a competitor.
