    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pays well Easy to coast and have work/life balance Probably not going to fire you if you do your job moderately well

    Doesn't value a technical career path - only way to progress is by becoming a manager Everything moves super slow Ranking/performance and career progression are massively 'mysterious' Industry isn't doing so hot Very poor internal response to COVID-19 and racial injustice

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefit is good.

    Cons

    If you are white/tall/male, and you are a female/white, you can move up to the management easily and quickly. There is no technical appreciation so technical depth is very low. Few hires figure out that exxonmobil only value management layer so most of them try to get up but with very little technical knowledge. 1 person does the work and deliver the results but 9 people pass information and do nothing.
