    I worked at ExxonMobil International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent company, great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Very unfair rating and ranking system, very corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change 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.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil International as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere
    Many bright people
    Individual offices
    Job security

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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