    Pros

    The pay and benefits are pretty good. There's a lot of experienced engineers, although more and more are retiring, and good mentorship if you seek it out. There is a lot of structure and many, many procedures for just about everything. Which in my opinion is good. Safety is taken very seriously.

    Cons

    Experienced hires will never move up the corporate ladder as quickly or as far as someone who is hired in right out of college. In this regard, there is a bit of a prejudice against those who hire in as experienced hires. The culture is very serious, stiff, mechanistic, systematic, etc. This might not be a con if you like consistency and a serious culture. However, if you're looking for a company like Google, then this is not your company or industry.

    Advice to Management

    Safety Leadership and Risk Management at this company are great!

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for the amount of work. Shift work allows you to get things done while others are working

    Cons

    Big oil egos and big corporate mentalities. Promotions not based on merit. Company has to meet quotas for hiring so they don't always hire the most competent

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the quotas in hiring and promotions. Hire the most competent people because the workforce is turning over quickly and the burden to run operations safely falls on the few that are capable

    Pros

    Stability, job security, management is for the most part trusting and hands off.

    Next career steps are assigned to you with input to your supervisor but you do not have the option to search out for your own opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate 9-80 workweek structure

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working with Exxon for several reason, but my main one is the ability to implement change. Senior management is much more inclined to listen to upgrades and changes involving safety, which in the long run and save $$ for the company. The ability to transfer job locations is great as well.

    Cons

    Time away from family for some jobs is something of a bummer, but just means I have to plan ahead to schedule travel home and to locations where my family can meet me.

    Advice to Management

    Need to start thinking about rotation schedules earlier in planning phases.
