    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (less than an 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.

    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

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Interns are assigned buddies and mentors to help them adapt to the new environment ASAP. Projects are challenging but interesting. There are a lot of training and development opportunities. There are also a lot of networking events via which interns could get very good insights of the company. One can develop one's career at ExxonMobil, not just to get a job.

    Cons

    Like all big companies, there are restrictions with installation of software. Sometimes one has to wait for long to get installation request approved.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working with Exxon for several reason, but my main one is the ability to implement change. Senior management is much more inclined to listen to upgrades and changes involving safety, which in the long run and save $$ for the company. The ability to transfer job locations is great as well.

    Cons

    Time away from family for some jobs is something of a bummer, but just means I have to plan ahead to schedule travel home and to locations where my family can meet me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to start thinking about rotation schedules earlier in planning phases.

    Need to shake things up every now and then. Not have the same people in the same position for years on end.
