    Pros

    Great place to work if you're a permanent ExxonMobil employee. Great Benefits. If you're a contractor & well liked, great stepping stone to getting a permanent position with this company.

    Cons

    Contractors get worked extra hard & you get no respect because you're a contractor. If you're like you get a little respect.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with contractors. Contractors do have great input also.

  2. Pipeline Company has so many people. Its a warm welcoming environment.

    Pros

    Job security. Good salary.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to come up with new great ideas, push them through a bloated bureaucracy, and then embellish whatever accomplishment you came up with to shine on your ranking.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ranking system. It's too demoralizing.

    Pros

    Stable; good pay; great work-life balance; job mobility for professional staff

    Cons

    Giant bureaucracy; wildly subjective promotion and ranking system; cult-like inbred corporate culture

    Advice to Management

    It is a DULL place to work. The company is slow to act and too conservative to lead. It is a great and safe job but there are few new opportunities to make an impact. If management desires to foster an excited workforce they should try doing something new in any facet of the company - i mean anything.

  8. Great company but minimal worklife balance. The pay is excellent but you'll have no free time to enjoy the extra money.

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the brightest people in the world. There is a big gap in employees since they stopped hiring for almost a decade. Senior management is about to retire while middle management is in their 30s.

    Cons

    Since senior mgmt. is so much older, they do not like change. Old systems. Old methods of doing things. Very resistant to any kind of change. Lack of quality managers.

    Advice to Management

    There's a difference between being an SME and a good manager. Go the extra mile for your employees and they'll give you 110%

    Pros

    not a bad location. got a lot of experience with different things

    Cons

    where to begin.... i worked at a private owned store in florida. it wasnt bad jut way to many rules, unfair discipline for employees because it wasnt the same for each employee. the manager turnovers were beyond what any employee was willing to handle. cared more about manager and area manager than they did about the customers and the employees

    Advice to Management

    if your going to run a successful business stop and think of what your employees notice and what the customers notice. if the store is always having issues between the manager and the employee customers are going to see that and arent going to feel like they are in a customer friendly environment meaning they wont come back. if you are going to show discipline you need to have it the same for each employee dont favor one just cuz they are your buddy buddy.

    Pros

    Variety of assignments available, you don't stay in a position for years on end. Good benefits with a pension and 401K. Lots of smart people who are always willing to help.

    Cons

    No job postings available so you never know what's open, you're basically told that you're moving to a new position. Can be very slow moving and the culture is conservative.
