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

    Pros

    Interesting business, enormous scope
    You get to learn a lot
    Fantastic people in the international environment

    Cons

    Plenty of incapable people in the mid-management, raised because they've been there for a long time
    Unnecessary projects that bring nothing, except for keeping some people busy
    Some processes stopped making sense and people forgot why they introduced them. But they keep blindly following them

    Advice to Management

    Be ok to downgrade incapable employees or let them go — their direct reports suffer

    Pros

    Good benefits - system cafeteria is working well and includes items from culture, sports, tickets for theater, contribution to vacation and much more so the wild choice is for everyone and is very useful and practical. If you would like to have stable work {for example if sb. is planning maternity leave in the near future} - go ahead because they are flexible and open for this situation and provide work with shorter work schedule - 50-80%.

    Cons

    It's the corporation so don't expect that the changes will go fast, everything needs lots of approvals and it takes ages. As well if you would like to change the position it's the process for long time even if in some teams it works fast and in another one it takes years and sometimes without results.
    Safety is the most important things so be prepared for drill and lots of trainings which are much more important than your work. Sometimes the drill is worse than at the school {wash brain} and who is involved in safety might have open good career.
    The increasing of the salary wasn't problem a few year ago but now days it it's better don't expect anything even if the company reach the good results.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't promote people only according to their result in safety activities, let them use their brain to show if they are useful in real work as well.

    Pros

    Nice multicultural environment, with a deep focus on safety and a lot of chances to grow inside and outside the department. A lot of different benefits and various events.

    Cons

    Salary not very high, sometimes your value is not totally recognised, especially when there are "older" people who are not very good. Usually who first arrives get promoted first, even if doesn't really deserve it.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Multicultural environment, lot of trainings provided, good start for graduates. Good location in central Prague, modern office and equipment.

    Cons

    Difficult corporate culture, too much concentrated on safety (to the extent of absurdity), very american management style not suitable for local conditions, more than your performance is appreciated your participation on projects (which are often quite silly). Most of the positions are basic level positions. Suitable for graduates but not for senior professionals and ambitious people. Work life balance is good in some positions, in other it's terrible, the distribution of workload is very unbalanced.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - good for people without experience due to an easy job
    - location of office
    - well known company for the CV
    - very young collegues

    Cons

    - low salary

    - bad local managment
    - no big career

    Advice to Management

    promote more good collegues, give more meaningful tasks and help people develop, otherwise after two years they will move somewhere else.
