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

    Pros

    Excellent 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.

    Cons

    Working 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.
