Opportunities to move to different positions within the company

Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 10 years

ProsMultinational company with offices all over the world. Opportunities to transfer to many different departments within own city / country and internationally. Truly global organization to work with people all over the world.

ConsAs it is a global organization, quite often you work with team members who you may never meet face-to-face. For a manager, there are times when your day start early & finishes late. Many corporate policies & processes.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's people who makes the company; don't forget your employees are your most valuable assets.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A varied and rewarding career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB

I worked at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 10 years

Pros- A large and diverse company that offers many career options
- Excellent career development program
- Good benefits
- Well managed company with excellent employees

Cons- The forced ranking system is abusive to its employees (gets worse the longer you work there)
- Very demanding work environment, which makes it difficult to achieve a healthy work/life balance
- Too many processes and associated sign offs (hard to get your day-to-day work done)

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
