Approves of CEO

Pros

Career advancement is key, young engineers are given a lot of opportunity to advance. Global presence is obvious, but the technical teams tend to form small families, so you really get to know the experts in the entire world. Job security is high and salary is ok. Morale can swing, but most times they are good. Safety is always something to keep in mind, but the industry understands how to run the business. In the end, a good place to work for young folks, worse case you can always good to another company after Exxon has trained you up. Thanks.

Cons

Red tape, public perception of the company.

Advice to Management

Don't be so scared to spend a little OPEX ....... M/E of 25 to 1, c'mon.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent opportunity for international work. Especially great if your life long desire is to live in Nigeria.

    Cons

    $40 billion profit/year is apparently not enough to pay bonuses. On top of that, the salaries are not competitive with other oil companies. It's an embarassment. People that work at Exxon are sheep. I can't wait to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Pay me more. Loosen up.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay seems to be the best for Chemical Industry. Seems to have a high level of investment performance when compared to most competitors. If you are ranked highly you will be well taken care of.

    Cons

    Seems to be the red headed step child of ExxonMobil. Upstream is clealry where the money is mostly made and where everyone wants to be. Seeems difficult to make a move from Chemicals to Upstream. Refining even seems more respected than Chemicals. Ranking system is very subjective and tends to not be based on anything quantifiable. Career Development is handled totally by management and not by the individual. There are no posting of jobs for professionals. All job moves are handled internally through your supervisor so relationship with him/her is very important.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility (9 80 work weeks) should be allowed.
