    Pros

    Great salary and benefits, solid reputation, high business standards

    Cons

    Extremely competitive, leadership lacks compassion, and flawed performance review process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider revising MPT performance review process to allow more annual ranking variation consistent with employee improvements. Also direct leadership to provide more clarity on employees work goals and priorities. Maybe also include an awareness training for managing minorities and respect for their cultural differences.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    The retirement plans and health coverage are great. There are also many company discounts for gym memberships, cell phone plans, etc. There are some good people to work with.

    Cons

    Disconnect between management and worker. Inability to get anything fixed. It's always the worker's fault instead of the old, patched equipment that constantly breaks. The forced overtime is unreal. The workers that stab you in the back for advancement, that they can't even control because advancement is based off seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to feedback from your employees. We want the place to operate more efficiently too. We work with the equipment. Don't take our feedback and throw it out and ignore the building list of problems. And for crying out loud hire more people for once and quit forcing your people to work 1000 hours overtime a year.
