    Pros

    If you're a dedicated, hard worker, good at relationship building/maintaining, and perform well in the ranking this company will take you as far as you're willing to go. Your promotions will occur quickly and raises to follow. The career / professional development you will receive will set you up well for a long career within ExxonMobil or anywhere else. At the manufacturing level technical careers are not valued... the same as management development, so many people feel pressured to stay on the management path to get out of the site to HQ before they express their true interest in other paths not related to management. Folks that are placed into high visibility roles early receive an abundance of guidance and support to ensure success which leads to quick development and promotions. The company tries very hard and effectively to gain great diversity in it's hiring classes. (For engineering in the Southern US I see more women and minority engineers than may other companies).

    Cons

    If you're not in the top 20% of the ranking and more specifically the top ranked individuals after 5-10 years your career slows down very quickly as do the raises and promotions. The ranking system is not perfect and management perception can carry more weight than performance, even though management says that's not the case. Folks have been held back from promotions that are ranked at the top due to lack of... visibility (visibility is position dependent and not due to lack of performance or capability, and can not easily be factor into the ranking system. Or a manager 1-2 levels above has no real direct experience with an individual yet discredits them for some small reason hurting raise/promotional opportunities). It is very hard to advance on a technical career path, and many technical folks become frustrated when their management development peers quickly accelerate through promotions and raises without much differentiation in ability or contribution. Work life balance is not encouraged or rewarded. It's considered normal to work 10-12 hour days. Many employees feel that this leads to folks who can stay at work that many hours regular get promoted faster. Folks who are not placed into high visibility roles can often be prioritized resources, development, and oversight from management leading to a sink or swim environment. Leading to a lack of visibility and resources to accomplish work which is then unfairly reflected in the rankings. With the great diversity every year of the incoming hiring classes, it's interesting to see a serious lack of diversity in the site management team (mostly white men, a few women, and slim to no minorities). No internal job postings. You're held responsible to drive career discussion with your supervisor. Then job moves are generally communicated to employees less than 2 weeks in advance, and if they aren't align with the employee's desires there's very little time time to work alternatives without a feeling of that potentially hurting your career.

    Advice to Management

    Employees understand your drive to develop the next level of management and the push for the top employees to move quickly. However, don't forget about the numerous highly capable folks in the top half of the ranking but either aren't management development or at the very top. They still need development, promotions, raises, and accommodations of work life balance and willingness to provide other career... opportunities and not just reserving all those opportunities only for the MD top tier candidates. Need a serious revamp of the forced ranking system to systematically eliminate bias and unconscious bias. Inclusion of 360 feedback so that managers can't get away with being terrible bosses but covering up to look good to their supervisors (letting subordinates take the fall). Understanding why minorities and women are not being promoted into upper management / or understand why they're choosing not to accept those positions (work / life balance etc.). More effective supervisor training, especially for first time supervisor who directly have the most impact on new hires and their development / potential within the company. Hold them accountable for encouraging work / life programs and employees to utilize HR programs available to them.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Really can not see any past three retirement and medical benefits. Outside of that it is a dreadful place to work

    Cons

    Complicated and political structure for advancement. Increasingly high risk acceptance Complete lacy of work I life balance Completely silent progression leads to predatory competition between staff. Out of touch between level of competence and ability to correct issues in the field. Personnel routinely place in a position of failure due to lack of experience in order to keep the pay scale verses... responsibility low.

    Pros

    Great stable company, good benefits, good pay.

    Cons

    Too large of a company to advance much. Cut throat atmosphere, everyone is lobbying for limited positions and doing anything they can to get moved up before you including backstabbing and stepping on you to get ahead. Lots of internal favoritism, cliques, if one person didn't like you for personal reasons your promotions would be nullified. Exxon is so big that you're just another number to them. They use you to... their advantage, not being considerate of how all those hours are affecting your health or family life. You're simply another on of their many tools to achieve their overall goal of producing money at any cost.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time

    Pros

    SAFE Stable Peaceful Everything is planned for a long term, although plans can change, there is no rush, everything must be safe and done by "the book" Clear Policies Great management of technology, although some novices may think that the company is old fashioned, but they do know how to invest in technology and give to the users what they "need", not what they want because of their "status quo" Al technology... must be approved, IT folks hate this, but they don't understand how IT governance must be lead in global environment without killing the budget, so XOM is right in taking things slowly but reliable and feasible the new campus is outstanding, not yet ready, and work at home is a great choice.

    Cons

    Is not easy to grow, but the salary is good enough They won't allow you to be individualist, and implement "cool" (but not safe) technology It really sucks to have a bad boss, they will ignore you, but you still stable because their HR systems work Is hard to compete in a Global environment Don't expect huge salaries, but quality life along time Get used to follow the sun, and work with people around the world.

    Advice to Management

    Let people have more access to information to make the right decisions. Train, and let people achieve higher levels of professional development. Make benefits for the middle class, not only for higher management levels. XOM is a great place to work only if managers care about, otherwise is hell. Never forget the philosophy since the roots of the foundations, as Rockefeller said: Leadership: "Good management... consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people" Respect and fair opportunities: "I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living" Ethics: "Next to doing the right thing, the most important thing is to let people know you are doing the right thing" Motivation: "I would rather hire a man with enthusiasm, than a man who knows everything" Support: "If the people can be educated to help themselves, we strike at the root of many of the evils of the world.
