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

Pros

Best at what they do (arguably)

Cons

A true, modern mega-corp (tremendous compartmentalization)

Advice to Management

This train has already left the station - no stopping it now.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time

    Pros

    Exxon Mobil employees tend to be very bright and dedicated to their work. You get job security and opportunities for different assignments.

    Cons

    Exxon Mobil is a very rigid corporate structure and there's not a lot of room for original thinking. If you do not fit the culture or their idea of a good engineer you will not be happy. Their compensation is average compared to most large companies and below average compared to other oil & gas majors or energy companies.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and personal development. If you are interested they move you to a different position every couple of years so you don't get bored.

    Cons

    You need to find a champion if you want to climb the ladder. Houston wasn't a good location for me. I had a boss in a different country and that proved difficult.

    Thanks for the feedback. Sorry Houston did not work out. The city is rapidly changing and improving while maintaining a low cost of living thanks to the growth of the US energy sector.
