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

    Pros

    Pay as a researcher is excellent. That is the only thing that keeps people here. You know where this is going... Good flexible hours, benefits etc., with some stigma attached. Highly recommended for those who want a job where they can 'coast' with high pay and little likelihood of being fired. Low-stress job after a few years. Good opportunities for shifting to management role if desired. Plenty of... rotational/travel opportunities. Lots of career paths to choose from. Plenty of smart people to work with and around. Plenty of interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    The management at Clinton, NJ has essentially commandeered the ranking system as a method of lining their own pockets and rewarding their political allies. Your 'rank' at the R&D headquarters is mostly just a measure of your political success. I had to see it for many years to finally believe it. The quality of the engineering work (and innovation) you do is irrelevant to your rank, as long as it meets basic... requirements. As a researcher with a PhD, this may cause depression after some number of years, but you will get over it! Exxon is a top-down company with strong managerial control. The top-down approach to research prioritization produces awkward results. Be prepared to work on programs/projects which appear totally pointless to you and your colleagues. Micromanagement is very common, as managers were once engineers themselves. No method of underlings to review supervisor performance. It is a one-way street.

    Advice to Management

    You're hiring the most intelligent people you can find, then telling them they are average no matter what they produce. How do you think that will affect morale, creativity, and results going forward?

    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible, home office, great benefit programs, nice people. They value good work.

    Cons

    The office is far from the city center. Management is not professional. The supervisor had no idea what our daily work is about. Workload is not divided equaly. Big amount of stress and crazy closing periods.

    Advice to Management

    Choose the leaders from the same area as the team. It's crazy to have a new supervisor for accounting from customer service. Really guys just think for a bit.
