No opinion of CEO

Pros

One of the best reasons is that I never have to worry about being laid off. They have a fantastic benefits package. It blows everyone elses benefits out of the water. And their retirement package is amazing. It's easy to retire a millionaire from here...even the little guys.

Cons

Managers are not all on the same page. Some people have a fantastic manager, open to new ideas, but others have an old, set in their ways manager.

Advice to Management

Try to treat everyone here with the same amount of respect. We all went to college!

    Pros

    As most profitable public company in the world, it is an extremely stable company. If you do your job well, you don't have to worry about losing it. This company is not going to go out of business. The compensation is very fair starting out and raises typically are greater than inflation and the market. The full benefits package is excellent, as ExxonMobil is one of the few companies still giving a pension. As a huge company, you can do many different jobs in many different places in the world without changing employers (i.e. maintain your seniority, vesting, vacation, etc.).

    Cons

    There is no job posting system. You have some input into what kind of job you would like to do next, however, management frequently decides for you what your next assignment will be.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open about personnel moves.

    Pros

    Stability, stability, stability. Great place to be in this economy. We're a dinosaur and move slowly but steadily. These days, that is a real bonus! Great coworkers - cohesive group of bright people. Makes for a good workday.

    Cons

    Only place that can hire 10 Nobel Laureates and fire 2 by the end of 10 years or so the story goes . . . it is tough to compete and deal with the rating and ranking system in some regards. Most employees have never been "average" before and that can be quite tough. Also, XOM is "one size fits all" - if you don't fit in, leave quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves, you aren't god and need to follow the same rules everyone else does.
    Listen to the little people, they have ideas too.
