Pros

The company is well known - it's the largest publicly traded company in the world. The name carries a lot of weight to other potential employers.

Cons

Company culture is very rigid, it's a good ol' boys network. It never was about what you know, it's about who you know...company is lacking in diversity.

Advice to Management

There should be a check and balance system in ensuring equal opportunity especially for minorities.

    Pros

    Corporate training center is on our campus which presents the opportunity to learn as much as you want to. The work environment is very university-like, taking time to think, read, research is encouraged.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is stiff, not very warm and fuzzy. Exxon prides itself on being very methodical with a long time frame for success. This can be frustrating for those who like a more dynamic environment. Technical staff, the lab workers, do the heavy lifting but are not on the radar screen as far as management is concerned.

    Advice to Management

    We are a research center with many labs and very talented scientists. Management should pay more attention to the people who are doing the work and stop worrying about themselves and the "shareholders". Shareholders aren't staying late every night keeping up with the workload.


  2. "Sound business philosophy"

    Pros

    Good pay with great opportunities for advancement. Many high levels positions will be left vacant in the coming years as the Baby Boomer generation retires, making them available for those of us moving up in the company. Supervisors have always been great about allowing leave to take care of personal matters.

    Cons

    Travel requirements for high level advancement (although undertsandable) can put a strain on family life. This is especially hard if your spouse has a good career in a different industry. Depending on where you are located and the assignment you are in it can be tough to be noticed by people higher up in the company because it is so large. This really forces you to try and come up with new innnovative ways to accomplish things and get that recignition most people are looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the strong technical base of the company and promote growth assignments.
