"Working in a company with little control over your future and performance"

I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time

Pros

Good emphasis on work and life balance. Good projects to work on if your performance is good. Good pension benefits.

Cons

Performance ranking is highly dependent on your supervisor, so you better hope to be lucky. Your career path is determined by factors beyond your control.

Advice to Management

Rating and ranking system is extremely flawed and favors extroverts over introverts, even if introverts are lot more effective at their job.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, job stability, Houston is an affordable city. Other energy companies do pay better than ExxonMobil, as a note.

    Cons

    Inconsistent hiring practices, very political, bad middle-management. This is a place where you are hired for life, and it shows in the behavior of the people, the lack of excitement, the mentality that no matter what you do, you won't get fired. If you want a stable job with little creativity for the rest of your life, this is the place.

    Advice to Management

    Not every good employee is a good manager. Promote intelligently. Learn how to fire those that just aren't up to par. Provide more opportunities for employees to highlight their strengths.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great exposure. Exxon carries alot of clout.

    Cons

    As a contractor you are treated as such. No matter how long you have worked there you are never part of the Exxon family. You are a tool.

    Advice to Management

    Give contractors more consideration.
