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

    Pros

    If you have a good attitude your time there will be good, and on top of that the manager is down to earth

    Cons

    There’s no benefits and you won’t get a raise more than likely. There are some regulars there that aren’t great either, they will purposely try to ruin your day.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time

    Pros

    The pay and the benefits were in line with industry standards. They continue to offer both 401k and company provided pension.

    Cons

    It seems like they are going to continue to shed assets in the continental US. They typically do not offer a separation package and include the employees with the sale.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully the pay and benefits can remain intact while the company sheds assets. Overall it was a good company to work for but varied manager to manager.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady work and employment, competitive pay, decent benefits (including a pension)

    Lots of training opportunities are offered throughout the year, generally you are allowed the flexibility to chose the courses you want to take based upon your interest

    Cons

    Old school approach to work, work from home can be a challenge depending on your organization. Influential assignments are tough to secure since the company applies militaristic approach to job placement where experience in many cases is the deciding factor.

    The company culture as whole is not futuristic like what you expect a google, Facebook or any other Silicon Valley company but rather the old school “good ole boy” culture.

    It can be tough to be fulfilled in your work as it can become mundane and not challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be much more proactive about putting people and challenging high growth potential assignments in which people can generate new ideas to problem solving.

    In addition, I would note a change in the culture away from the “good ole boy” into more 21st century culture in the old ways of doing things can challenged with new ideas and approaches to problem solving.

    Also I would note at finding opportunities to make the work environment more friendly and exciting as opposed to a high stress and hardened atmosphere, I do not believe that model will attract a continued stream of talent going forward in the 21st century.

    Cons

    slow management, limited work scope, forced competitive ranking system

    Advice to Management

    rank group averages have been a joke for years since a large number of "low performers" are actually people close to retirement. now that those people are leaving, the problem is exacerbated for those of us left
