Information Technology at ExxonMobil

Current Employee - Systems Analyst
Current Employee - Systems Analyst

I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (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.

    Cons

    - The forced ranking system is abusive to its employees (gets worse the longer you work there)

    - Listen to your employees and get rid of forced ranking
    - Streamline and simplify the "must do" aspects of your many business control requirements
