      Rough times, but good career so far

      Oct 12, 2020 - Mechanical Engineer in Spring, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Like any company, your immediate experience will be highly correlated to your immediate supervisor. My supervisors have been mostly very good. The company is working to modernize it's culture and make I&D at the forefront of our culture. I appreciate the effort.

      Cons

      The industry as a whole is struggling right now. Time will tell if ExxonMobil handles the transitions well. We recently lost our 401k matching, so that puts a dent in teh comp&benefits package.

      Wide variety of roles with upward potential in technical leadership - rewarded more for strategy than competence.

      Apr 25, 2021 - Electrical Engineer in Houston, TX

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I like the higher salary than most electrical engineers can make in other manufacturing or utility industries. Electrical engineers get experience working with a wide range of equipment and voltages, from PLCs to motors/drives to HV switchgear, from maintenance and reliability, to design and power system modeling. There is a variety of increasingly-challenging roles available with broader reach for a rewarding career.

      Cons

      Exxonmobil is largely run by chemical engineers, they don't really care about power unless the lights go off. You become a jack of all trades, master of none. Any complex engineering work gets contracted out. Senior levels of engineering with global influence are a good old boys club that's hard to crack.

      Cut benefits, office politics, and toxic leadership

      Apr 17, 2021 - Laboratory Technician in Kansas City, KS
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The pay is decent, and you won't take your work home with you.

      Cons

      The job is mind-numbingly simple and routine. Two of the supervisors and the lab manager are toxic to those that work under them, patronizing when honest feedback is given, and then act shocked when new hires and contractors don't last six months before moving on to better positions at other companies. Almost all benefits were cut last year while the company shareholder dividend was maintained, and no raises were given out. There is extremely low morale, but with current leadership, it is being ignored rather than addressed. Claims of the utmost focus on quality go out the window when production metrics are threatened. Constantly short-staffed due to high turnover rate (because of excessively low morale). Would highly recommend you look elsewhere for lab work; this facility is a dead end.
