I have been working at ExxonMobil

Pros

Professional work atmosphere. Amount of team support given on a project is pretty good. If you are in the "club" you could get to work all over the world.

Cons

So far the employees are professional and overall intelligent. However the expectations are very high and often times unrealistic, leading to large amounts of stressful situations. Advancement for younger employees is often times controlled by managers with not much experience in managing people. When you first start working they will start determining the highest you will ever move up in the company, which makes it hard to break some preconceived mold they put you in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never stop investing in your employees, and always give raises, which often times are the only way to know for sure if you are Doing a good job or not. Be more open with your teams and less of an elite attitude toward others would go a long way toward relationship building.

    Pros

    The best healthcare benefits. Different options to take time off or work part time. Good for working mother with moderate career goals (not for VP to be working moms). College graduate advance pretty fast.

    Cons

    Company culture is very conservative and arrogant. The environment is extremely competitive. Performance evaluation process is very subjective; ranking can be very unfair if your boss doesn't fight for you. In XOM you can be just a number, it's toooooooo big.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the ranking system.
    Copy the best from other companies (Google, Apple, etc.) Need to innovate more
    Don't favor High Profile employees only.
