    Give reports feedback often and think of how to keep the quality and standard for excellence and eliminate incentives that cause the many type-A competitived peers to be cut-throat

    I have been working at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    Strong opportunities for younger employees, great place to develop project management skills, international exposure in first 2-3 years.

    Cons

    Difficult to get exposure to senior management - numerous levels of management in between you; limited alternative work schedule options (no "9-80s").

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Loosen up a bit" ... Show more candidness and transparency - "fireside chat" style; bring more excitement/energy to what we are doing.

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

    Pros

    Conservative in spending and rarely have massive layoffs. Pays well, good benefits, getting there on technology; flexible work environment is great with management is on board.

    Cons

    Managers that have no business being responsible for someone's career should not be allowed to manager people. CL is not enough. Were a bit behind on standard technology, forced ranking is outdated and, for lack of a better work, stupid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP FORCED RANKING!!!!!
