    Process Engineering Internship

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    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!

    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.
