Pros

Great opportunities, both international and domestic. It is truly a global organization; no matter what your interests or abilities, there will be some place in the organization that is a fit. Because of the global scope of activities, there is an opportunity to gain exposure to an incredibly wide range of technologies and operations. Oh, and the compensation and benefits are outstanding.

Cons

The internal processes and controls can sometimes become overwhelming/frustrating (however, there are usually good reasons for most of them!). Because the organization is so very large, it can be difficult to identify who the right individuals are to address an issue or problem. And there is no internal "job postings" board; moves are worked between the employee and their supervisor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the focus on the fundamentals, but don't forget to reward and recognize individuals for a job well done - and be careful not to overload the staff.

    Pros

    Benefits, Experience, great opportunities to learn business negotiations and problem solving techniques. Sales allow for lots of travel, with good expense support. If one does not mind regimantaton, this is a great place to be. It pernits access to businesses of all shapes and sizes, especially when in a psn of sales solicitation

    Cons

    Large bureacracy w/ relatively little flexibility and large amount of conytol processes. The company is great for assigning the first two entry positions, but then after that it's extremely difficult to move on, even when rated especially high. It's a great place to work for 5-6 years, then it's importsnt to consider other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek feedback directly from employees, especially in areas of controls and support tools. Most of the employees with over 8 years are stymied in jobs for several years that stagnate one's loyalty and comittmrnt.

    Pros

    the long term strategy for exxon has provided continual growth opportunities for employees. The benefits package is the best I have ever seen and the pay is incredible. This is a company that has posted record profit and has taken care of its employees accordingly. The cost of living in texas is very cheap. There are international opportunities to work abroad and they even give you a massive bonus (sometimes) if you're going to a remote region in the world.

    Cons

    very conservative company that lacks innovation. The company is very top heavy with many employees being there 25+ years already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep on truckin
