    Pros

    ExxonMobil paid me over $140,000 annual starting in 2009. Excellent conditions + benefits. Spray-Lining & Coatings was the polyurea vendor / client. SLC hired me via ExxonMobil as Director of Process Engineering last month. Spray-Lining & Coatings Reviews applicants with 5 years experience in polyurea process engineering. Both corps are partners, like support teams, very symbiotic relationship.

    Cons

    With client / manufacturer partnership all details are shared between Spray-Lining & Coatings reviews & ExxonMobil process engineers. this creates duplication of effort in excess time wasted documenting issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Partnership with it's manufacturer Spray-Lining & Coatings superseded Line-X, Rhino Linings and Scorpion Coatings in the spray-on bedliner dealership field. Against Carboline, SLC outclasses them in big DIY packages for large clientele.

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

    Pros

    The company is truly world class in its training and structure. It has a lot to offer someone fresh out of school. If you begin in a "good" role, you have a lot of potential to grow quickly. There are lots of opportunities to rotate throughout the organization.

    Cons

    The company's structure is what defines it, and it will define you. If you don't fit, don't force it, but move on, as you will not succeed in changing the regime. The role you start in very often defines your career path. Beginning in a "lesser" section or division will likely eliminate any hope of making it to the C-suite or executive level. The opportunities to move are great, but the locations can be less ideal, especially with their recent sale of their refineries in the greater New Orleans and Los Angeles areas.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Some managers do a fantastic job, others are promoted based on "metrics" and are not managers. Someone's technical aptitude does not translate to their ability to manage, which can be a very big challenge to the subordinates who have those managers. Having had both throughout my tenure there, certain managers can make or break the efficiency and effectiveness of entire sections or divisions.

    I worked at ExxonMobil as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours (varies with Supervisor)

    Cons

    [1] Contractors shouldn't expect to be treated with respect. That's reserved for the employees.
    [2] If anything goes wrong, it's YOUR fault.
    [3] If you get hurt on/off the job, it's YOUR fault.
    [4] If you need to work overtime, you're working inefficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten-up, it wouldn't kill you to be nicer to your employees and contractors.

    Pros

    The pay is competitive within the marketplace.

    Cons

    They look at every employee including long term employees as replaceable. All they care about is how much work they can get out of you for the least amount of compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Without employees you would not have any profits!
