I have been working at ExxonMobil

Pros

The travel is adventurous. The time-off is great. The money is good and will get better as I become more experienced.

Cons

Have to remember about 20 different passwords for various systems. When we do have to go into the office everybody is very busy and can only offer you a very limited amount of time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing. You run an organization that rewards performance with cold hard cash and that's what we like.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Plenty of career oppotunities within different areas of expertise, you can always get there (if you know the right people and they like you).
    Financial solidness (zero lay-offs during the 08/09 crisis, even with oil dropping from $120 to $40 a barrel)
    Compensation little above average (what is more than expected from the biggest company in the world)
    Status
    Travel opportunities
    Good for ambitious people, with political and leadership skills

    Cons

    Old, paternalistic culture
    Outdated technologies (be prepared call MS Access and Excel as "systems")
    Bureaucracy
    "We have all the money and infrastructure you need, it's all beautiful, so if you fail, it's exclusively your fault.". This can frequently bring your self-esteem down.
    Company talks about work/life balance, but its in theory only. When you need, figures change.
    Due to its size and distribution, every simple move requires a gigantic step, this is a innovation, creativity and flexibility killer.
    Forced ranking, which at sometimes lacks transparency/fairness
    Politics often values more than hard-work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value more people that work hard, recognize them
    SD process is beautifully pictured on the slides, but when it comes to reality, friendship with leaders is being a major factor for promotion. This is creating an environment with high levels of stress, frustration and lack of camaradarie, mining the productivity.

    Pros

    Company will provide great opportunities for those that perform. Reinforces one's thought process to be more thorough and disciplined. Truely word class training.

    Cons

    Highly bereaucratic and heirarichal. Best technical skills accompanied by ability to "rub shoulder" with upper management is required to succeed in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to execute and lead the company as they always have.
