    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company culture. Employees generally respects work-life balance. Plenty of job rotations within the company across different level and departments. Good pay for interns across the industry.

    Cons

    Amount of talent hired by the company makes one difficult to stand out, which is crucial for promotion during the employee ranking period.

    Current Employee - Engineering Specialist in Baytown, TX (US)

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable, consistent employer with a long-term business focus. Re-emphasizing US Gulf Coast growth, especially in commodity petrochemicals. Personnel and operations safety is highly emphasized.

    Cons

    Rating and ranking system is extremely opaque and arbitrary. No clear way to self-direct career path, especially in the engineering specialist disciplines. No 9/80 schedule option.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a job posting system that at least makes employees aware of other assignment possibilities, as is done in almost all other companies in Exxon's class.

    Process Engineering Internship

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Relatively good pay for internships locally. Great opportunity to learn about downstream refining processes and learning how to use software and tools to optimize setups

    Cons

    Location is extremely far and time consuming to get to. Company has quite a lot of red tape, probably since the occurrence of the Valdez incident. Took me about 4 hours to travel each day!

    Pros

    Choose your career path. Compensation is very competitive. High performance is rewarded handsomely. Some positions allow you to create your own work.

    Cons

    Forced ranking system. Some positions carry a lot of stress and long working hours; weekends and nights occasionally. Some employees get by on how well they are liked instead of performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the comp time vs. overtime policy. Could push hard working employees into the arms of a competitor.

    I worked at ExxonMobil as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefit, projects, competitive nature, training, looks good on resume and career builder. Work-life balance supported by management in a meaningful way. Good pay, interesting work, intelligent colleagues, multicultural environment

    Cons

    Conservative, lack of work/life balance, feels pressure all the time. Though the workforce is diverse, most managers and executives are white, Anglo men. That sends a negative signal to your worldwide personnel as to their prospects at the company and probably hurts performance at the top.

    Pros

    Great benefits. 401k is 7 percent match. Pay is great for process operators.

    Cons

    Overtime is mandatory. Average 950 hours of OT a year. No time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and stop being greedy with funds.
