    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get a lot of really great experience. You meet a lot of very intelligent people. You get to travel quite a bit if you're willing to do so.

    Cons

    Exxon Drilling expects a lot out of you if you work there. If you are not a white male with a stay at home wife, it will be very hard for you to succeed specifically in Drilling. None of the minorities stay longer than 5 years and very few females stay in drilling. It's seen as a nuisance if you take time off to have kids or need to pick up your children because you're in a dual career relationship. All the men I...

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with respect. Enforce diversity training. Stop hiring the same white male mold for drilling. Promote those who work smarter not those who just work longer hours.

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relatively good pay, that's all about it

    Cons

    Working as a Contractor (or as they called it HAT Contractor) for ExxonMobil (Esso Australia) is like working in the US during the slavery period. You are an outsider, they don't say hello to you, they don't share any data with you. You are a paid labourer and just a number. No plan or vision, they just make things up as they go. They hire you and don't listen. Technically poor people only waste money.

    Advice to Management

    I think Exxon should really consider looking into what's happening out there in Esso Australia under their name. Apparently it's been going on for years and surprisingly still continues.

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Steady work and employment, competitive pay, decent benefits (including a pension) Lots of training opportunities are offered throughout the year, generally you are allowed the flexibility to chose the courses you want to take based upon your interest

    Cons

    Old school approach to work, work from home can be a challenge depending on your organization. Influential assignments are tough to secure since the company applies militaristic approach to job placement where experience in many cases is the deciding factor. The company culture as whole is not futuristic like what you expect a google, Facebook or any other Silicon Valley company but rather the old school “good ole boy”...

    Advice to Management

    Management should be much more proactive about putting people and challenging high growth potential assignments in which people can generate new ideas to problem solving. In addition, I would note a change in the culture away from the “good ole boy” into more 21st century culture in the old ways of doing things can challenged with new ideas and approaches to problem solving. Also I would note at finding opportunities...

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People and diverse work experiences are the reason I work here. Everyone is willing to help and there is a lot of team projects and assignments.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is very dominant in this large organization. Overworked staff in current economic environment. The company is too structured and stiff, and molds new employees into their traditional culture without empowering them to change.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency with your employees needs to improve!
