I have been working at ExxonMobil

Pros

Stable job and good potential career growth. in the company. Generally pays better than other industry. Promotes work life balance.

Cons

Every employee is ranked, which can be quite biased, depending on whether your boss favours you or not.. boring, mundane job, not much of a challenge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more overseas postings, instead of being stucked in the same work environment forever.

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    A great to place to get your first 2-5-10 years of experience, stellar quality of people, ethical, knowledgeable superviosrs, abundance of in-house knowledge and expertise in every area of the law and great willingness to mentor. In all, a perfect environement to learn proper client interaction etiquette and hone legal skills. A very professional atmosphere and a lot of autonomy early on in your career.

    Cons

    Plan on working 60+ hour weeks, with work days stretching across global time zones. Lots of lateral movement and cross-training with few opportunities for upward movement. Couple that with zero bonuses and modest, mostly inflation-based raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing says "we aprpeciate you" like a good year end bonus.
