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

Pros

Best training opportunities around. Top tier personell. Long term job security.....assuming you continue to meet expectations.

Cons

Highly regimented processes.....not a lot of room to excessive creativity. Bureaucratic and hierarchal organizational structure. ExxonMobil is in business to make money......not to have fun.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you're interested in chemical engineering, EM is the ideal place for you. The whole industry focuses around chemical engineering with lots of support groups to help you accomplish your job. As another engineer, you play primarily a support role. While the compensation is great, the role changes little when advancing outside of chemical engineering. In essence, you always support chemical engineers, but some people like this aspect of the job because you're always working with people. Again, great benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Not the greatest location. Beaumont is a big city with enough activity to keep you entertained, however you shouldn't expect the grandeur of a stereotypical big city.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your colleagues and give credit where credit is due, especially when doing performance reviews of your staff.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Research freedom relatively high compared to other industries & competitors
    High caliber colleagues (technically and morally)
    Safest place on earth
    Very stable

    Cons

    Ranking process is highly political, not based on performance or impact
    Pay is 'just enough to keep you' according to Senior Management
    Employees not valued by management
    No good locations (e.g., Houston, Houston, Houston)

    Advice to Management

    Employees are human beings. The ranking process is biased and discourages 70% of the workforce and makes them despise what otherwise would be a great company (Note: this comment comes from someone ranked in the top 1/3).
