    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Allows independent honest feedback for new insights into business whilst also giving free reign into research into said new insights. Pro-actively encouraging new development ideas.

    Cons

    Some management personnel could easily be offended by idea of change or even idea's to consider change. HR could be selectively rigid with some personnel and not entirely consistent in their role/s.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to all staff and contractors feedback on HR practices. Continue with the proactive encouragement of new ideas as it is refreshing to see that an employer values a contractors expertise. Good employers listen to those they employ. That's why they call for contractors advise.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relatively good pay, that's all about it

    Cons

    Working as a Contractor (or as they called it HAT Contractor) for ExxonMobil (Esso Australia) is like working in the US during the slavery period. You are an outsider, they don't say hello to you, they don't share any data with you. You are a paid labourer and just a number. No plan or vision, they just make things up as they go. They hire you and don't listen. Technically poor people only waste money.

    Advice to Management

    I think Exxon should really consider looking into what's happening out there in Esso Australia under their name. Apparently it's been going on for years and surprisingly still continues.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people are the best. Talented, motivated and for the most part positive and supportive. The work is challenging and stimulating

    Cons

    Working with the best means being compared to the best. The ranking system is consequently very tough and somewhat of a black-box. The best opportunities and pay are reserved for the select few that are able to rise to the top of a very talented pack. The rest make do with what they get.
