    I have been working at ExxonMobil part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Being able to put a smile on a customers face. Recognizing the frequent common customers. It's very easy work especially if you are a fast learner.

    Cons

    Once in a blue you get a Looney, Crazy , person come in mostly weekends. Situations where you would have to involve the police.

    Advice to Management

    We should be able to get discounts in the store as employees and more hours would be nice.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Collaborative, international environment with abundance of opportunities
    - Ability to work with smart and inspiring people from all over the world
    - Fantastic work environment with new modern facilities in Houston
    - Leadership opportunities early in career, significant investment in people since all promotion is done from within
    - Fresh wind in Corporation with new CEO, lots of focus on innovation, intrapreneurship, competency development
    - Excellent compensation that quickly grows with performance/contributions, good workplace flexibility policies and practices

    Cons

    It's a huge company so if you want to change something (big), it won't happen overnight. ExxonMobil invests in the long-term, so often a bit of patience is required.

    Pros

    Lovely place to work at. Great coworkers, beautiful scenery, and most importantly, a wonderful environment. Everyone there's so friendly and helpful, you'll love them!

    Cons

    There really isn't any negative parts for working here. Except of course, if you're lazy and unmotivated, then you better quit and look for another job.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start career, rotate positions on average every 2 years and learn a lot

    Cons

    big company, lots of people, very bureaucratic, difficult to control your own career unless you think about things 5 years in advance - which is how the company operates. They plan for long term stability and predictability. This is a pro but not the best for the younger generation of folks who move faster and are more nimble.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing while trying to enforce some nimbleness to the decision making while balancing the company's ability to manage risk.
