    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    ExxonMobil is an innovative work environment bringing an opportunity to work with bright people from all over the world. I have held jobs across Manufacturing, Logistics and Projects over a ~10 year career. I'm consistently engaged at work and learning something new everyday. The new maternity and paternity benefits recently allowed my husband and I a great leave with our 1 year old boy! Great 401K match, pension plan and insurance policies are an added bonus!

    Cons

    Work locations in the US are largely concentrated around the Gulf Coast. The international opportunities offer much more location diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the current path toward an inclusive and empowered work force. Also continue positive policy changes such as the recent improvements to maternity and paternity leave.

    Pros

    Here you will see only smart people around. There is always something new to learn and apply.

    Cons

    Sheer size of the organisation. A little slow to adapt, but considering the scale it's expected.

    Advice to Management

    Great job!. Consider diversifying portfolios to other energy sectors as well.

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Good salary
    Less work
    Big name on ur resume

    Cons

    Job rotation which means an engineer can be thrown to a marketing job so that can be the end of the engineering career.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Perks - accommodation in great hotels and international trips in business class for business travel.
    Job security - If you are complacent and just want money in your account at the end of the month, this is the best company to work at

    Cons

    No short term growth in terms of either career or salary
    1. Management is very clear - ExxonMobil is not a paymaster
    2. Your "potential" is assessed about a year or so after you join. Subsequent moves within the company are based on this assessment. If your potential is assessed at, say, country manager level, your career path is planned such that you keep moving between lower level roles such that you end up at said level a few years before retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Short-term rewards and recognition are important alongside long-term growth. Recognize that the aspirations of millennials are different from those of current top managers who are either Baby Boomers or Gen X, and work towards assimilating them into the company.

    Pros

    Company has very good ethics, culture. Average paymaster.

    Cons

    There are many, Indian management is too worst, if u r favour to supervisor or manager then you are eligible for promotion. And travelling opportunities will be given to them, Sincere and honest people will not get any thing in this organisation. So much partialities. Few people forgot to work and concentrated on impressing managers and supervisor. Few managers directly believe their supervisors. If you are a hard worker then this is not the right place for you. Really don’t know how promotions are happening. Few supervisors are useless, they just stop people career growth if any clashes with people, so much manipulation’s.

    Advice to Management

    Management should Believe in people in the team, not on Supervisors words, managers should interact people once in a while, promotions and recognitions should happen to the right people,

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1.The Business unit in Bengaluru has majority(85%) of South Indian employees and a very few North Indians were working and they were pathetically treated.
    2. Under utilisation of the resources specially; Language, MBA , engineers.
    3. Data entry work.
    4. Nepotism.
    5. No salary perks!
    6. Although company promises to an employee that they will work for 5 days a week but the data entry work job pressure is so much that now they are compelled to come to office on Saturdays. Specially, Investments team.
    7. Sexually frustrated Men who are acting as supervisors and advisors!
    8. mental pressure.
    9. Puppet HR.

    Cons

    Only the brand name. Oh wait!? These folks doesn’t even have their company board in tech park!

    Advice to Management

    1. Please if you could give some authority to India HR!
    2. Kindly have an anonymous suggestion box. You will realise how majority of employees are frustrated working in the company!
    3. Do not fake promise to freshers of different backgrounds. We were promise to have work in our field but on joining we were told that the project is gone!
    4. Job profile on the offer letter was changed a day before joining. If the management is itself such a loser and fickle minded then do you think your BU will run in India for longer time?
    5. Could you also have a look at sexual predators (supervisors)? These men have serious pathetic male ego and they are very much into blabbering or commenting jokes with sexual connotations. Btw ; that person is your advisor now.
    6. I think enough advices on deaf ears as already the attrition rate is high in the company currently.

    Pros

    Great place to work and growth is exponential if you are a top performer. Lot of opportunities to learn and showcase your talent.

    Cons

    Nothing much to comment. However, shift timings are fixed respective to the team you work with. There is no flexibility in work timings.

    Advice to Management

    Clear communication down the line.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of training. You get USA travel.

    Cons

    Not providing experience letter and termination letter if you do not agree to resign. They literally harass you and behave offensive.
    HR does not sit in India, so exit process is handled by the manager whom you are not in good terms.
    After such regressive interview process they should not think of discontinuing service after probation.
    This is not software company but it is mining culture.
