    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.

    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.

    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 full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    High safety standards, they do everything within their power to help everyone stay safe. Great pay with a lot of overtime. Coworkers and supervisors are mostly friendly, with a few exceptions. Excellent training for all crafts.

    Cons

    A lot of gossip and drama among employees. Some supervisors can be very immature and unprofessional but it was easy to ignore.
