Great opportunities, high expectations

  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Supervisor  in  Houston, TX (US)
Current Employee - Supervisor in Houston, TX (US)

Pros

Great opportunities, both international and domestic. It is truly a global organization; no matter what your interests or abilities, there will be some place in the organization that is a fit. Because of the global scope of activities, there is an opportunity to gain exposure to an incredibly wide range of technologies and operations. Oh, and the compensation and benefits are outstanding.

Cons

The internal processes and controls can sometimes become overwhelming/frustrating (however, there are usually good reasons for most of them!). Because the organization is so very large, it can be difficult to identify who the right individuals are to address an issue or problem. And there is no internal "job postings" board; moves are worked between the employee and their supervisor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the focus on the fundamentals, but don't forget to reward and recognize individuals for a job well done - and be careful not to overload the staff.

    Pros

    Pay and benefit are one of the best, 401k and/plus pension plan.
    Work is not back breaking, very relax, no pressure.
    Fun to work.
    Lots of overtime.
    Management care for everyone's safety, safety being their first priority then our environment.
    No slowdown or employee lay-off. Lay-off is a word that is not in their vocabulary.
    A lot of employee give aways, gifts and rewards for being safe, quarterly luncheons and off-site team building get together.
    They provide yearly supply of work uniforms. I don't need to buy my own work clothes, yearly supply of work boots.
    I can order any hand tools, power tools, measuring tools and equipment that I need for the job.
    Regular supplies of coffee, creamer, drinking bottled water, refreshing gatorade soda cans all year round especcially during the summer.

    Cons

    I started working when I was 15 years old for a lot of small and big companies and I CAN NOT THINK OF ANY
    DOWNSIDES OF WORKING FOR EXXONMOBIL. Like any other companies they are not perfect and these are not
    considered downside of working at Exxonmobil

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good and excellent work and I'll do mine.
    Let's continue making money.

    Current Employee - Senior IT Analyst in Houston, TX (US)

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Cost of living in Houston is low, but Exxon pay is quite competitive compare to other major cities. Some opportunities for international assigment as Exxon is truely a global company (unlike Cisco, ATT, ...who merly sub-contraced the local vendor to perform the work on the behalf of the companies. Top 10% -performer-rank group's raises are quite significant compare to the rest of the rank group.

    Flexible with worklife balance ... (not as flexible as other tech companies with programs like telecomuting, friday earned day off, flex schedule). Take good care of employees during disaster (before Ike ... released employees early Wednesday morning so they can attend to emergency preparation/needs..., then after Ike ....interest free loan, excused time with pay to deal with insurance companies, offer limited use of company's car ...etc....)

    Cons

    Very conservative company. Lots and lots of politics. Process oriented. No innovation / little creativity. Technology adapters, not inventors. Forced ranking. No bonus (rarely - very insignificant) in IT organization. Heavy on security and control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to replace the aging workforce (including management) with younger leaders that will inspire the younger workforce. Invest more into R&D of alternative engery...
