    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    High safety standards, they do everything within their power to help everyone stay safe. Great pay with a lot of overtime. Coworkers and supervisors are mostly friendly, with a few exceptions. Excellent training for all crafts.

    Cons

    A lot of gossip and drama among employees. Some supervisors can be very immature and unprofessional but it was easy to ignore.
