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

Pros

Stability in work environment. Ability to travel to some nice places. Typically the people you are working around are really smart and easy to get along with.

Cons

Flexibility with work schedule. Work life balance is promoted until it comes to ranking time, then it is used against you. Advancement opportunities for all but the top rated folks are hard to come by. Typically use technical folks to do all mundane tasks such as organize a file room. Salary always seems to lag competetors

Advice to Management

How employees are ranked is not always reflective of work performed, highly skilled technical people are also an asset and should be compensated to reflect that.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, solid benefits, rewarded if high ranking, pension

    Cons

    No flexible work environment (falsely advertised) subject to Supervisor discretion
    No creative ideas allow, expected to fall in line with no disagreement
    Up to management for career placement, no control from employee perspective
    Type A personalities ALWAYS competitive

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent across the board, lose the favoritism and "chosen one" model. Listen to employees career desires, need to be more diverse, inclusion is a joke! Work on fairness.
