    Good experience.

    Sales Analyst (Former Employee)
    Bentonville, AR

    ProsExcellent company, great benefits and pay.

    ConsVery unfair rating and ranking system, very corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the evaluation system to be more fair and equitable for all. Employees should have opportunity to apply for job openings within company website instead of only through your manager, who may to be unfair and you leave company without other opportunities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A tale of two cities

    Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsVery relaxed atmosphere
    Many bright people
    Individual offices
    Job security

    ConsThe company has a split personality because of the merger. There are two styles of management fighting for control. There is the traditional command and control style that you see at most large companies. And there is a more modern approach to management that is very refreshing to experience especially at a larger company.

    Unfortunately, it looks like command and control has the slight edge because the new campus is being designed with an "open" floor plan i.e. cubicle farms instead of respecting the private space of their professional employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecide who you want to be and hopefully choose right (i.e. respect the creativity and professionalism of your employees)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Boring

    Public and Government Affairs (Former Employee)

    ProsEasy work for good pay, very loyal company and want loyal people

    ConsThe culture is conservative, slow, republican-leaning, risk-averse...work was not intellectually stimulating because positions are very siloed

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop separating yourself from the employees into the "god pod"

    If you are former military....you'll like it here.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsBest training opportunities around. Top tier personell. Long term job security.....assuming you continue to meet expectations.

    ConsHighly regimented processes.....not a lot of room to excessive creativity. Bureaucratic and hierarchal organizational structure. ExxonMobil is in business to make money......not to have fun.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLighten up

    Positive experience Overall but with a lot of stress placed on you daily to preform or leave

    Project Management and Execution (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsProfessional work atmosphere. Amount of team support given on a project is pretty good. If you are in the "club" you could get to work all over the world.

    ConsSo far the employees are professional and overall intelligent. However the expectations are very high and often times unrealistic, leading to large amounts of stressful situations. Advancement for younger employees is often times controlled by managers with not much experience in managing people. When you first start working they will start determining the highest you will ever move up in the company, which makes it hard to break some preconceived mold they put you in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever stop investing in your employees, and always give raises, which often times are the only way to know for sure if you are Doing a good job or not. Be more open with your teams and less of an elite attitude toward others would go a long way toward relationship building.
