Information Technology at ExxonMobil

Current Employee - Systems Analyst
Current Employee - Systems Analyst

I have been working at ExxonMobil International full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Pays well, opportunity for travel

Cons

Very bureaucratic and boring. Focus on process rather than product. Best to do nothing rather than do something wrong. The secret to success is to be totally hands off. Overrun with administrators and advisors. For every person doing work, there is someone watching them. Over the years they have become erratic. At one point they set long term strategies, now they seem to swing wildly. One day it's an extreme process orientation, next day, cut costs, next day security and controls.

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

    Pros

    Some great team members, subsidised restaurant and deli, an opportunity to work with a number of different departments and disciplines

    Cons

    Most the current upper levels of management were promoted because of how long they have worked for the company rather than on merit and many are literally counting down the days to retirement. As a result there is no real room for innovation and interesting ideas to take root as the management just want to see out their remaining time with the company before retirement. Also as many were not promoted on merit they aren't always capable of doing the job and it is up to sub-ordinates to provide vision and guidance. There is an aversion to dealing with poor managers and they are left to spread their toxicity and there is an extremely high turnover in some departments one department went through 6 supervisors in 6 years due to the behaviour of the department head. There is a strong safety culture - don't come here if you aren't willing to investigate why a paper cut occurred and how you can prevent it from happening again - however there is mixed messages from upper management with some undermining the process by not reporting near losses and ignoring interventions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote on merit, deal with problems as they arise and don't let fester

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
