    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, stable career (typically hires for life), options to move within the company. Fairly low and benign politics - esp. at my level. Good work life balance. Very stable company with good long term prospects and a senior mgmt that genuinely thinks and invests on multi-decade time-frames.

    Cons

    Very slow moving, bureaucratic and conservative. Like the rest of the oil&gas industry, pretty backward in technology - esp. when compared to hi-tech companies which can get frustrating. Also, job-security makes people complacent and risk-averse. Also, the office space (i.e. on-site food, furniture, equipment, gym etc) is of very poor grade at all engineering locations.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable, well established large corporation. Compensation well above average.

    Cons

    Employee ranking system can be demotivating unless you are regularly in the top 20% in performance. That too often equates to 80% feeling undervalued, under appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump the ranking system. You have a workforce of among the best in the world. Find a system that allows the majority to feel good about their achievements/contributions.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong financial compensation and great benefits.

    Culture is changing (at least in IT): free WiFi, bring your own tablet, empowerment, making mistakes is actually encouraged ... etc.

    Cons

    Too many "middle management" layers . Some pockets still are very conservative ... must cross every T and dot every I before doing anything.

    Need more techies that know what they are doing. Instead of everyone moving over the the "management track"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tweak the reward & recognition system - still FORCED RANKING!!! How can team work be built if everyone is competing against each other.
