    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, exciting work, travel (pro & con), quality colleagues, overall a well-managed company

    Cons

    travel, they are beginning to succumb to the politically correct culture common to most US companies, red tape (to be expected when you work for a large company)

    Advice to Management

    stay true to your values. From my limited perspective, EMDC is well managed but there are some pockets that are exceptions

    Pros

    Great benefits & salary; great opportunities for career changes and travel. Highly ethical company.

    Cons

    The company will suck your life away - lots of hours, at the office & at home. EVERYONE is highly qualified so very competitive. Forced ranking system pits employees against each other which can make a very nasty working environment, depending on your department.

    More work life balance
