Good pay but lack of promoton opportunity!

Exploration Analyst (Current Employee)
Melbourne

I have been working at Exxon Mobil

ProsGood benefit, job security, good brand name, I guess if you are engineer or geologist, that's a good company to start with.

ConsYou will never get promoted if you can't make yourself the "chosen" one within 3 years. Very political, process driven, lots of "loyal" employees and the only thing they know is "cover your ass".

Advice to Senior ManagementTop down communication need to be better channeled. The company is too slow. Need to change the organisational structure to get rid of all those hierachical barriers. No incentive for young employees as promotion takes forever.

Great people and working environment but very bureaucratic processes

Team Lead (Current Employee)
Budapest (Hungary)

I have been working at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat learning experience in a global business environment where you can try yourself in different areas. Great people to work with. Usually challenging tasks and responsibilities. The offices are very nice and comfortable and the company is really providing everything you need to do your job including continuous training opportunities . Has a strong culture with great values. Average salary.

ConsDespite what they are saying the company is not performance oriented at all. There is no real difference in appreciation (salary increase etc) between a top and average performer. As a team leader I don`t feel that I have any tools in my hand to influence the performance of my team. Promotions are not performance based either, but depends on who you know and who you are in good term with.
Processes are quite bureaucratic and slow.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to keep the good performers.

Satisfied Employee

Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee)
Baton Rouge, LA (US)

I have been working at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSalary is great. Work days are different each day with new challenges. Flexible schedule as long as you are taking care of your business I think is a fair

ConsMany negative people that love talking about conspiracies and how others are unfairly getting promoted. Spend more time doing this than working.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe transparent and give low performers the closer they so desperately need.

Best place to start a career

Field Engineer (Former Employee)
Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)

I worked at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe wide range of experienced field engineers allowed me to fit in and learn right away. Was not worried by my more experienced co-workers, they really looked out for me.

ConsExxon is a major player in the industry now and will be so in the future. Must be able to give the time and effort if you want to move up. I choose my family when we had our first child and left to stay closer to home. Will try to go back later if possible.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice. Loved the way management made things so clear.
