    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time

    Pros

    - Competent, highly engaged colleagues. Passionate and intelligent.
    - Job transitions every two or so years
    - Salary relatively high for the industry

    Cons

    - Performance reviews are stuck in the 1960s; wrought with biases, personal friendships, and are completed in secrecy behind closed doors
    - Management is opaque in their job transitions. Roles for nearly all employees change suddenly and without notice.
    - Company portends to be a progressive organization stressing a bold approach to doing business. In reality, management bemoans non-conformist ideas.

    Great company to work for with lots of benefits.

    Everyone wants to be on a "manager track". So Exxon lacks some of the really experienced technical individuals because they are moved to different jobs to frequently.

    Pros

    Great company. Surrounded by a lot of smart people. Enjoyed the cafeteria. Very professional environment and great job security. Would recommend for recent graduates.

    Cons

    ExxonMobil can be very patriarchical and not give you control over your career. ExxonMobil prefers to promote from within which means it is missing out on different perspectives from potential employees from outside of ExxonMobil.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Maybe give a little bit more control to your employees. And bonuses too. We like money. At Christmas time.
