Pros

Great compensation and benefits package; great place for long-term career, especially because their retirement benefits are out of this world; its such a big corporation that you could start your career doing one thing and end up doing something totally different; you move jobs every couple of years, so if you end up in a position you don't realy like, you know that it will only be for a few years at most;

Cons

Not all managers are sold on the corporate policies that they use to recruit, i.e., work-life balance, service opportunities, safety, but some really are - its kind of the luck of the draw. Upside is you can move around a lot.

Advice to Management

Obtain feedback about supervisors from their subordinate and have that play a part in their overall performance reviews.

    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.
