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

    Pros

    Lots of knowedge to be gained and learned along the way

    Cons

    Too many work processes and too little effort on individual career planning. This may not be the overall picture may be solely attributed by individual department efficiencies

    Advice to Management

    Approaches, concepts or plans to be stewarded bottom up and just working on targets thru stewardship and presentation won't cut the bill. What's happening at ground is the key

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

    Pros

    Financially rewarding for those who will wear the blinkers.

    Cons

    Uses an outdated forced ranking system which assumes a normal distribution for performance.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the forced ranking; you are rewarding engineers who worked long hours to fix something that shouldn't have failed and not noticing the systems engineer who maintains a flawless suite of services.
