    I worked at ExxonMobil for less than a year

    Pros

    Current full-time employees are happy to help, you do need to take an initiative to find them however.

    Cons

    Some of the managers should not be in that position, not very patient or understanding with new interns. Good work is not rewarded, and if you make a mistake it is not easily forgiven. There is a large number of interns and they are all pitted against eachother, felt a bit like being in the Hunger Games. You do not get a true sense of what it would be like to work at the company as you are merely given a project to complete.

    I worked at ExxonMobil for less than a year

    Pros

    Good renumeration and quick feedback at the end of internship.

    Cons

    Had a very simple. dull project involving training employees. Wasn't to the same level as the other interns, who have important and integrated projects with their teams. Strong culture within the company, either you fit or you don't.

    Advice to Management

    Be more explicit about contents of internship and ensure all projects are at the same level.

    I worked at ExxonMobil

    Pros

    High intern salary, good benefits.

    Cons

    There were lots of cons:. 1) Almost all of my colleagues looked unhappy all the time which made me wonder whether it was the company making them miserable, as that was the only thing they all had in common. 2) You do become an Exxon robot. You are supposed to think (and even walk!) in a particular manner defined by Exxon. Independent thinking/ novel approach is NOT appreciated. 3) Technical incompetence: although the...

    I worked at ExxonMobil for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay. If you perform extremely well can accelerate through management quickly.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. BIt of a blame culture and top down management. Sometimes can get stuck in a position and find it hard to rise up the organisation. Some workers can be a bit unfriendly due to be overworked.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil for less than a year

    Pros

    The office is nice and you have the opportunity to have add-on positions like business enablement which is more strategic.

    Cons

    Work is heavily on the operational side which makes tasks repetitive. Positions are rotary so if you like your position you won’t be able to stay there for as long as you like.

    Advice to Management

    Have more opportunities on the strategic side of the business because the daily tasks are quite boring.
