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

Pros

Strong training program, great experience early on

Cons

All about how much your supervisor likes you, if you get stuck with a weak one who will not fight for you your ranking will not go well no matter your performance. Evaluations and raises are very secretive, not really sure why things go the way they do and its all about who you know in the company that gets you ahead. Horrible retention rate at this company of young engineers.

Advice to Management

Communication is a problem in this company, make sure you reward those who work hard and not just the ones who play the game

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work with brightest people
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Ranking system hopelessly broken and unfair
    Company policy says one thing, supervisors and managers do another
    Paperwork red tape
    If you don't have a PhD, you are worthless to the company

    Advice to Management

    Have managers and supervisors adhere to company policy
    Fix/replace ranking/review system
    Streamline some of the red tape paperwork employees have to go thru to get simple things accomplished - off the shelf software purchasing especially.
