    I have been working at ExxonMobil for less than a year

    Pros

    From development programs to a strong emphasis on ergonomics, it is clear that ExxonMobil cares immensely about its employees. Lots of international opportunities. Pay is extremely competitive and defined benefit pension is amazing.

    Cons

    Forced ranking system is a bit odd but I do believe that the best people are rewarded. Hard to get large levels of responsibility early in career (at least for MBA hires); company coddles MBAs for years before giving them high levels of responsibility. Safety is important but it is nearly comedic how much it is stressed at ExxonMobil (it's mandatory to hold the handrail while walking down all flights of steps). ... Work life balance seems to vary greatly across groups/positions- some people leave at 4PM while others grind until 8 every night.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Discounted gas, educational reimbursement, name recognition, job stability (they don’t lay people off)

    Cons

    Controllers is sold as “rotational finance”, but you will be entering data into SAP and doing accounting/bookkeeping/journal entries. Accounting and reporting systems are approximately 40 years old. The “cool” finance jobs (business development, treasury, trading) are given to engineers only, which explains Exxon’s subpar financial performance relative to peers like Chevron and general distaste from Wall... Street/institutional investors. Very secretive and conservative company, not very much diversity. The largest group in Controllers appears to be white males from Florida’s MBA program. Low pay compared to peers, finance function is paid ~10-15% lower than Shell, Chevron, BP.

    Advice to Management

    Try mirroring the rotational programs of other oil majors and include some “cool” jobs. If not, hire only accounting majors or just outsource.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Recruiting process was fairly easy.

    Cons

    The work is unfulfilling. When recruiting while still in school the position on job board is very broad and you don't know exactly where you will be placed in the company. The company assigns positions by need basis and you really have no say as a new hire.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good team and very nice campus to work at. As a contractor there's no on call.

    Cons

    No movement as a contractor and getting a raise is very difficult from agency. Management not always in line with what actual problems are because most decisions are based on numbers which are not always correct.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your team as to work needs to be changed and improved.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Retirement savings matching (free money). Ernst and Young financial planning at no cost. Education reimbursement, if you're interested in going back to school. They take your own personal career desires into account Competitive salary. Annual raises. Very competent colleagues. Ample exposure to a diverse variety of colleagues around the world. Good amount of travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Personally, I would rather not work for an oil company. Incredibly bureaucratic and hierarchical management. VERY noticeable age gap between the younger progressive professionals and the older stodgy white hairs. No bonuses. Employees are ranked against each other, and not informed of their ranking. VERY slow to adapt to new technologies. They are their own worst enemy when they try to move fast.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your younger employees. The conversation amongst the younger crowd is currently about "where are you planning to work when you leave ExxonMobil", but it should be about "where do you want to work with ExxonMobil". Take some risks. Ease up on the dress code. Make me stop coming to sites like this and LinkedIn to browse other opportunities. I don't have a burning desire to leave, but ExxonMobil hasn't... convinced me that this is where I should spend my career.
