    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good salary, co-workers are very nice. Projects vary and are interesting. The position is what you make of it. New employees get straight down to work. You can always ask your co-workers in case you have any questions, there is in an open-door policy, where anyone can approach anyone else. All this in a very informal atmosphere where people call each other by their first names.

    Cons

    Entry positions are tough to come by, with many employees coming in with substantial experience already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and maintain junior staff. This will breed loyalty and subject matter expertise, rather than only hiring from outside.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job stability since the oil, gas and chemical industry is currently thriving.

    Cons

    No one seems to know where there career is headed. Way too much secretive behavior concerning potential employee development and opportunities. Not knowing where your career is headed is ridiculous. Pay is good but is still relatively lower than some of the other major oil companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value your employees more or you will lose your more ambitious ones.

    Pros

    The people and regulars that you see are always nice and happy to see you. I also enjoyed the schedule and everyday routine.

    Cons

    The company I work for is family run and owned. Their is no room for higher improvement on the step ladder. The store will always look at you if there is a problem even if it's not your fault.

    Pros

    A lot of varied work to gain experience quickly, pay is above average, has policies to promote from within so good opportunities to advance career

    High pressure, high stress environment. More of a competitive culture than collaborative. Work-life balance seemed really skewed towards work.

    Promote a more collaborative work environment between engineers.
