A strong place to grow.

Business Developer (Current Employee)
London, England

I have been working at ExxonMobil International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent growing experience. The largest projects and world class processes, with early on responsiblities. Good working environment and working hours. You are changed around roles very fast, which is a pro but also a con since some roles will invariably not suit you. If you're a creative person, chances are you will impress people since most employees are the "very thorough/soldier/family guy" types.

ConsWorking in such a large corporation, bureaucracy is a heavy burden. A lot of people get overzealous trying to promote Safety and Controls at the expense of more value-adding activities. Commercially quite risk-adverse.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let overzealous employees burden your teams with excessive back office and controls/safety. While OPEX pressure is good, if you claim to be the best in the world you still have to send young people on expat assignments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good experience.

Sales Analyst (Former Employee)
Bentonville, AR (US)

I worked at ExxonMobil International full-time for more than 10 years

ProsExcellent company, great benefits and pay.

ConsVery unfair rating and ranking system, very corporate.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the evaluation system to be more fair and equitable for all. Employees should have opportunity to apply for job openings within company website instead of only through your manager, who may to be unfair and you leave company without other opportunities.

A tale of two cities

Software Developer (Current Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at ExxonMobil International as a contractor for less than a year

ProsVery relaxed atmosphere
Many bright people
Individual offices
Job security

ConsThe company has a split personality because of the merger. There are two styles of management fighting for control. There is the traditional command and control style that you see at most large companies. And there is a more modern approach to management that is very refreshing to experience especially at a larger company.

Unfortunately, it looks like command and control has the slight edge because the new campus is being designed with an "open" floor plan i.e. cubicle farms instead of respecting the private space of their professional employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementDecide who you want to be and hopefully choose right (i.e. respect the creativity and professionalism of your employees)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
