    I worked at ExxonMobil as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work environment ok .
    Pay is ok could be better.
    People you work with are great...*Managers through hardly ever there always on vacation*
    Astrosphere there as a whole ok
    Very safety oriented ...might be too much as always in meetings every week sometimes 2-3 times a week.
    -Not permanent
    -Technology advancements ok. Separate group for discussions.. which was good.

    Cons

    -Contractors are treated like garbage. 90% of the company is contractors.
    -No hourly wage increase, to save money they renew contractors but rate stays the same even if you ask for $1.00 or so more.
    -Christmas Party example : For Contractors to bring say a guest & themselves it's a $100 per person so $100x2 = $200.00 for cocktail party. I thought Christmas party's were free, 1st time I've heard of even remotely having to pay for a Christmas party. Employee's pay $10.00 however they make a big deal about it. EDO days contractors not paid on this day as well as all holidays no pay either. Some companies will pay for holidays.
    -NO benefits (they save money by having over 90% of the company as contractors, also from what I understand after a year as a contractor aren't you suppose to offer FT Perm employment *(Thought this was against the rules of government*)
    -Training is a bit of a joke, sure they train for maybe 2-3 weeks if someone isn't busy. I was told it would take from 6 months -1 year to train me I was gone *contract ended in 4 months, when it took 2 months to get full access, still after 3 months still did not have all access) Making it hard to do job.
    -Safety meetings every week & quarter meetings 2-3 hours or longer ..all meetings mandatory. Plus not to mention suppose to take frequently break like every hour, how can you get your job done when you are taking breaks? A program installed on your computer makes you take breaks very annoying after awhile.
    -Also every week you have to take a safety test before your week starts, 10 min test. 3 times a year also need to take a LPS test as in your co-worker evaluates you for say your walking on the street they follow you & see if you are holding the hand rails on stairs, if your looking both ways to cross the street. I know its a safety organization but 3 times a year? Trying to get paired up with people when they are busy tough to do.
    -Also do not like when contract ended, I had asked about feedback the month before as how I was doing they said I was doing excellent yet then a month later they hired one more person so I thought to replace a guy who left. Then new person their only a week & they ended my contract no communication. Just the rep emailing me 2 hours after I had left work saying contract has been ended. Need to give feedback to contractors to let them know what's going on
    -Politics in the company, everything locked down, they are worried about secrets getting out, unsure as to why?
    -Everything is so locked down it makes even IT Desk side frustrated as we cannot use the tools to help the clients, hands are tied when trying to help clients as only can do so much.
    -Cannot move up in the company or change positions. If you have a degree you may get a FT employee job.
    -Found out was also lied to about becoming permanent in the company.

    -Contract is not good as you could be without a job with no benefits ...which do not like. If you worked there for 10 years on contract at the same pay doing the same thing & not moving around would you be happy.
    -One thing I didn't like is when they have fund raisers they hound the everyone to donate even if they cant . Very pushy about donations (they get people to come to your desk to ensure if your donating or not) Found that to be very pushy.
    -Too many projects on the go as if you needed help who would you ask for as a lot of the staff aren't around a lot. Usually on holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a job...too many contractors ...
    Let people move around in company & stop under valuing your contractors
    More training with job shadowing!
