    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, excellent remuneration, interesting work. Projects given to vacation students had real impact on the business.

    Cons

    There were no real downsides to working for this company. You are expected to be smart, and work hard, but are rewarded well for it.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

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

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Top 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.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Global organization with some opportunities to travel (depending on position).
    You will also be exposed to many facets of the business.

    Cons

    working long hours. Working in a Global organization, and having to work in virtual environment with phone hook ups can really eat into your personal time. Time differences are killers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    acknowledgment of work accomplishments would not go astray

    Pros

    Excellent base pay
    Great benefits on paper
    Feedback for career and input
    International opportunities
    High-impact company
    Safety-focused
    Switching roles every 18 months
    Challenging environment

    Cons

    Peer-versus-peer ranking system
    Always on call, depending on your role: high potential for terrible work/life balance
    Military-like hierarchical structure
    Crawling with type-A competition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give reports feedback often and think of how to keep the quality and standard for excellence and eliminate incentives that cause the many type-A competitived peers to be cut-throat
