Pros

ExxonMobil presents a challenging work environment that rewards hard work and a job well done. Those who are strong self starters have the best chance to succeed.

Cons

As with many companies, there is strong pressure to perform and a daunting work load. It can be difficult to balance work and life outside of work.

Advice to Management

Overall, I feel the senior leadership is doing a fantastic job. ExxonMobil is a slow moving company, but it is a world leader for a reason.

    Pros

    Company will provide great opportunities for those that perform. Reinforces one's thought process to be more thorough and disciplined. Truely word class training.

    Cons

    Highly bereaucratic and heirarichal. Best technical skills accompanied by ability to "rub shoulder" with upper management is required to succeed in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to execute and lead the company as they always have.


  2. "Older ExxonMobil employees need to question their annual reviews aggressively with Human Resources."

    Pros

    Salaries tend to be fair for the industry.

    Cons

    Their ratings and ranking system has major problems. It is consistently used by management to trim the workforce of older workers so they can hire younger recent graduates at lower salaries. Older employees are considered to have lower" potential" due to their age. Most non-managerial employees retire between 55 and 60 because they receive ever more negative annual reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Be much more diligent in insuring that managers do not use the employee rating and ranking system as a tool to meet buget targets. The system is draconian to say the least.
