    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at ExxonMobil (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong technical, self motivated people. Hires the best and retains for life

    World class pay, 401K, health benefits, and even has pension plan

    Ability to work across various business sectors

    Plenty of training opportunities

    Even in the recent O&G downturn, jobs were relatively secure

    Cons

    Arcane ranking system, demotivates a lot of people. Even managers say they don't like it, why not change it.

    Very conservative. Many ideas, projects get killed at an early stage.

    Flat structure. Growth can be slow.

    Poor paternity policies.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be mindful of growth in renewables. How to position as a true Energy company for the next 100 years?

    Need to move fast on new projects. NOCs are getting big and moving much faster.

    Promote inclusion and diversity in upper management
