    I worked at ExxonMobil for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, if you're an employee otherwise you're on your own.

    Cons

    if you are 40+ you may be able to get hired directly but if you are 50+ "Fahgettaboudit" they only hire contractors. Contractors are treated by most as second class citizens. Like you you don't know anything. I applied and interviewed twice for the old position I had 4 years earlier, and they would not hire. in the interviews I kept hearing "My DAD" so it became obvious they were put off by my age. Oh Well too... Bad for Exxon, they lost experience but gained some young know nothing computer science degrees. Most have never seen the inner workings of a server, or understand much more than that.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging work environment, job opportunities, salary, benefits, people, training

    Cons

    Your career is owned by your direct supervisor/manager (not you) so if you have a bad relationship with your boss or they simply have their interests above yours then you can be stuck in an assignment or not in control of the next job you get. No 9/80s.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to have more visibility in ranking and more say in new job opportunities

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, promote from within

    Cons

    No bonuses, if you're not an engineer company treats you like a 2nd class citizen, no 9/80 schedule, individual ranking system does not induce teamwork, quality of job satisfaction dependent on who your supervisor is

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Exxon Mobil is the Industry leader. They have the money and the resources to research, develop, and produce top notch solutions to technological challenges. They pay excellent salaries, provide ample training to maintain expertise, and offer opportunities in many different fields. The Safety culture is among the best.

    Cons

    The company is very conservative and can miss out on first mover opportunities. The employee appraisal "Rating and Ranking" system is antiquated and widely disliked.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to evaluate employees than the Rating and Ranking system.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    the pay is above average, he management is honest for the most part, good business ethethis but not straightforward with emloyees. good office environment, private offices not cubicles

    Cons

    Computer science people just carry water for the engineers. All decision making is the engineers, they are better paied as well. Maganement (line supervisors) are rewarded for building the career of one or two people, the rest be damed, no oppertunity at all.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone has talent that can be used. Anyone can be a leader in the area they are strong in. Don't just single out one person and give them all the oppertunity

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Corporation is profitable, provides some stability 401K plan at 6% match Old-fashionned pension plan People who work there- intelligent and professional

    Cons

    Medical insurance very expensive Annual ranking systems of employees by local management with no pre-set standards, so you never know how you will be judged nor by what standards. No management by objectives. Ranking system is very political. Constant lay-offs since 2002, mainly aimed at Americans

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation for rank and file. The golden top 10% couldn't run the company or get any work done without them.

  9. "Great place to work; has its downsides, but everywhere does"

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits package; great place for long-term career, especially because their retirement benefits are out of this world; its such a big corporation that you could start your career doing one thing and end up doing something totally different; you move jobs every couple of years, so if you end up in a position you don't realy like, you know that it will only be for a few years at most;

    Cons

    Not all managers are sold on the corporate policies that they use to recruit, i.e., work-life balance, service opportunities, safety, but some really are - its kind of the luck of the draw. Upside is you can move around a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Obtain feedback about supervisors from their subordinate and have that play a part in their overall performance reviews.

    Pros

    Strong ethics, good people, and opportunities for growth. No matter what you do, if you feel that a situation is wrong, management is good about making sure that everything conducted is done with high ethics.

    Cons

    Not much fun. You may feel like you don't contribute a lot due to the size of the company. There may be several people on your team, but sometimes the problems you face seem so minor. Since it's a huge company, change takes forever as well.

    Advice to Management

    Try and make the work environment more fun. Maybe some people don't want to be a few hundred bucks to wear jeans on friday (even though it's for a good cause).
