    Pros

    Refinery engineering jobs pay very well, and there can be lots of paths to advancement if you're open to relocation.

    Cons

    Work hours demanded often exceed 40/wk, and turnarounds basically require you to abandon your life and family for weeks on end. This work schedule just isn't reasonable when you have children. If you aren't willing to relocate, your options for advancement are limited, and your ranking will suffer. Supervisors and Managers are rotated through very quickly, so there's little consistency in priorities.

    Pros

    Nice place to work. Campus and facility is brand new they take good care of their employees.

    Cons

    I felt distance between full time employees and contractors . Takes a while for management to approve new tools.

    Advice to Management

    If somehow they can work more towards team work and lessen the distance between contractors and full time employees.

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

    Pros

    ExxonMobil is a very stable company, has excellent benefits, and is virtually a continuous training program (two weeks formal training required every year no matter what seniority level). They also hire the best people from the top universities, so everyone is smart.

    Cons

    ExxonMobil is very bureaucratic, which is very frustrating if you like to get things done quickly. It is also patriarchal and employees cannot apply for jobs within the company...you are told what you next assignment will be, regardless of your personal interest.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the forced ranking system. It demotivated a large majority of the workforce. Of course, ExxonMobil is arrogant and paternalistic and will not heed this advice.
