I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Easy work for good pay, very loyal company and want loyal people

Cons

The culture is conservative, slow, republican-leaning, risk-averse...work was not intellectually stimulating because positions are very siloed

Advice to Management

Stop separating yourself from the employees into the "god pod"

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

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits.
    Depending on assignment, good co-workers.

    Cons

    Forced ranking process, completely depends on "who you know."
    Black-box job assignment process - attempting to apply directly for a position is a no-no.
    Management gives lipservice to work/life balance, but only promotes extended seat-warmers. Therefore, high hours = high performance (a strict performance comparison is apparently just too difficult).
    "Nanny" safety policies - must hold handrails on stairs, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the ranking system. At best, it ensures the best butt-kissers get promoted. At worst, it encourages a short-sighted culture, since prior years are ignored. This is why there are so many projects that look good on paper, but afterwards turn out to be useless, or worse. Even pro-ranking experts seem to agree that it only works for a couple of years.
