    I worked at ExxonMobil full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Interesting job; good people; home-office;

    Cons

    Outdated ranking system; instead of work-life balance there is work-life integrity; you are free to work 12-16 hours; being promoted to be a supervisor does not mean salary adjustment even if much higher responsibility and flexibility is required

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, highly intelligent and friendly coworkers, great pay

    Cons

    Somewhat old-fashioned as a company and obsessed with strict processes. I have had only great experiences but have heard of others having negative experiences. Luckily you move around a lot from team to team so if you have issues with a given supervisor you will not work with him/her for long

  8. "Good for job stability, but not for those seeking job progression"

    Current Contractor - Procurement Associate 
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ExxonMobil for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Good work-life balance. Not much overtime required unless you have backlogs to clear. 2. Benefits are decent as per industry standards (free medical coverage for clinic visits). 3. Exposure to different procurement functions (subject to your own capability of learning).

    Cons

    1. The team's daily procurement functions is heavily reliant on departments that are not within the same country itself, which complicates the core functions of the department. When said department is on holiday whereas it is a normal working day on your end, there are very little contingency plans that your team can do apart to cross your fingers and pray that a competent person on their end will assist with your requests. 2. Poor cross departmental support. Certain departments are still very hard to be contacted by the team, but when they sent out emails for action, they expect the team to follow-up promptly. 3. Depending on your experience and qualifications, the salary offered may be lower than average market rate. There's also no overtime pay for contract staff, which complicates things for employees trying to clear backlogs. 4. No potential career opportunities or conversion for contract employees. 5. Questionable actions from management due to inexperience causing morale issues within the department itself occasionally. 6. Higher management being too lenient on poor performers resulting in productivity issues and complaints.

    Advice to Management

    1. Either link up the relevant departments involve to increase efficiency, or decentralize the functions so that the team does not need to fully rely on a foreign department. 2. Do regular performance reviews and adjust their salary accordingly, especially for the more skilled and competent employees. 3. As contract employees, we KNOW that our job security is never stable. There is no need for your management to "remind" your employees of their contractor status. 4. Get the more experienced people on board before hiring new employees. The team is definitely not working at 100%. 5. Do not be too lenient on poor performers, as this will hurt the team's overall productivity as time are spent on resolving unnecessary issues arising from incompetent work displayed.

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

    Pros

    Stability, Pay, Company continues to expand, retirement optionsui

    Cons

    Work life balance is obsolete. Training/development for employees is lacking structure. Work environment. Lack of innovation in multiple departments.

    Advice to Management

    The future workforce will be a challenge for ExxonMobil due to its unwillingness for a more contemporary work environment. With personal wellness being a big focus area in today’s culture ExxonMobil will not be an appealing employer for young adults. I’m speaking in regards of the manufacturing facilities along the gulf coast. Majority of my experience has been based there.
