    Pros

    The salary was good at ExxonMobil. They had quite a few benifits, Moving Assistance, Health Care. The company's salary was competitive.

    Cons

    The people there were generally not very nice. It was a cuttthroat culture. People were mean, dishonest and overall out for themselves. Generally, not a fun place to work...

    Advice to Management

    Be friendly to employees. Listen to their concerns and try to take all employees seriously. Be open to suggestions, even if it's not what you originally planned.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    • Good pay - because let's be honest, that's why you're working here • Quick learning - there's no training, so you have to learn quickly to survive • Everyone is smart - you get to work with some wickedly intelligent people

    Cons

    • No respect unless you're a chemical engineer • You will not succeed unless you are a hyper Type-A Consultant personality • Forced rankings and pressure-cooker environment puts everyone on edge • High stress, up or out culture drives everyone to only care about themselves • There's a procedure for how to walk up stairs, and you will be evaluated on your ability to follow it

    Advice to Management

    Some training might be nice, even if it's an introduction to the petroleum industry and the O&G environment as a whole Stop hiring the best and brightest and treating them like idiots with procedures for everything

    Pros

    Company is solid financially and has operations around the world.

    Cons

    Do Not Work for this company, you will be very disappointed. There is no such thing as Work / Life Balance. This company has way too many processes and procedures so that you can never do everything that they demand. Then they rank you against your coworkers so that it is a backstabbing, ruthless environment. You will be much happier at just about any other company. The culture at ExxonMobil is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Clean House and start hiring from the outside.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary is competitive..

    Cons

    The ranking system used is a demoralizing process. The system does not reward hard work or competence. It rewards people that sabotage others and backstab others in order to get an advantage. Managers are often incompetent are and often are only expected to know the rules versus knowing the technical aspects of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ranking system. Promote only managers that are technically sound


  7. Would not recommend.

    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern

    Pros

    Extremely generous pay for someone still going through college. Enabled me to pay for school when I returned back the next semester.

    Cons

    Highly competitive environment with co-workers. People generally unwilling to help you out. Constantly feeling belittled.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more welcoming environment.


  8. Plant manager

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time

    Pros

    I like working with people and meeting new people. I like being able too help and make customers happy by giving them good service and by treating them right.

    Cons

    This company doesn't give raises and doesn't like giving over time. One of the only shifts they have with a set schedule is graveyard and being one with kids it's not easy.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like employees should be treated a little better And shown they are appreciated for the work they do.

    Pros

    Nothing. Real talent is not getting hired.

    Cons

    The Engineering Students they hire from NMSU to work as interns only have high GPA's because they rely on solutions manuals, old exams, and being a women to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring airheads. Surprise these "3.5 GPA" students with a Quiz during the interview and see how much they actually learn/know.
