    Promotion are very limited,

    Operator (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe pay is lots better then before, matching 7 percent in the 401 is a great benefit. The work is less wear and tear on my body then before.

    ConsNo promotional opportunity, you can have a degree, supervisory background and still not know about a job opportunity until after they have promoted someone else.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLets have a documented system for everyone instead of individual management discretion. Remove favoritism.

    Given challenging work that had real company value

    Marketing Intern (Current Employee) Fairfax, VA

    ProsAt ExxonMobil, you are working with the best and brightest across the world. You are given tasks that are challenging and have real value in the company schematic. Interns are not given busy work or coffee or copy tasks. The intern program has many opportunities for networking with senior management and employees outside your direct functional organization. There is a constant focus on improving work-life balance and you are urged to make sure you are making positive life decisions and not just what's best for your job. There are amazing benefits as an ExxonMobil employee including an almost unmatched salary and retirement pension plan.

    ConsThe only cons of working for the company are brought out by others outside of the company and choices you make for yourself. Working for ExxonMobil, you will have to constantly combat rumors and stereotypes about the work environment at ExxonMobil and also the industry that it is in.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
