Approves of CEO

I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-Compensation package
-Push to deliver results and grow as a professional
-Employer provided training

Cons

-Highly political organization that seems to bring out the worst in people- let your imagination run wild. You probably still didn't come up with a vivid enough picture of "the worst".
-Massive work- life imbalance
-Entrepreneurial spirits do not flourish
-The individual is not valued - the corporation rules
-I never met anyone in the company who could tell me they loved their job or loved the company. People seem to- and admit to- spending whole lifetimes there because they didn't know what else to do, or because they felt bound by "golden handcuffs".

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, work/life balance (if you do it right), interesting technology, stable company

    Cons

    Huge company, easy to get lost, small fish in a big pond, lots of red tape, slow moving, obsessed with security & controls

    Advice to Management

    If you keep squeezing employees, more and more and going to leave.
