Pros

Pay, benefits, and the name ExxonMobil as your employer.

Cons

Exxon is being left behind by its rivals because they stifle their people internally. Extremely process driven and too complicated for simple work tasks. If you are not the golden boy get out before you invest too much time here. Good ole boy network is in high gear and going strong. They are not better than there rivals anymore and too caught up in the ExxonMobil machine to realize it.

Advice to Management

New people are treated like crap...no trust, poor on-boarding, and everyone is too busy to help new employees. Good luck if you don't change.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is best in industry typically 10-15% over Hayes study. Very stable company with freebies over meetings like cokes and snacks. Excellent safety record - best in industry.

    Cons

    You will have every mistake you made and might have made persecuted endlessly. Don't think for yourself here you will be very disappointed. The most conformist culture and "nice guy" cutthroat backstabbers who "like you" but would never defend you. Do not stand out.

    Advice to Management

    You might want to relax a little. Apple beat you in market cap not just because you are commodity and they are niche. There approach with their employees and public is like a normal human being and not a robot. You don't have to put a foot to a guy's throat to get work done. Niceness goes a long way and my god maybe even a compliment once in a while wouldn't hurt. Your company isn't the military so don't pretend it is. The company's success is not due to its environment of strict "tow the line" cog in a wheel but in spite of it.
