    Information Technology at ExxonMobil

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsPays well, opportunity for travel

    ConsVery 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.

    Good experience.

    Sales Analyst (Former Employee) Bentonville, AR (US)

    ProsExcellent company, great benefits and pay.

    ConsVery unfair rating and ranking system, very corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the evaluation system to be more fair and equitable for all. Employees should have opportunity to apply for job openings within company website instead of only through your manager, who may to be unfair and you leave company without other opportunities.

    Field marketing coordinator

    Field Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) Bangkok (Thailand)

    ProsChance to travel

    Company will rotate the job for you every 2-3 years
    Good background of colleagues

    A tale of two cities

    Software Developer (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsVery relaxed atmosphere
    Many bright people
    Individual offices
    Job security

    ConsThe company has a split personality because of the merger. There are two styles of management fighting for control. There is the traditional command and control style that you see at most large companies. And there is a more modern approach to management that is very refreshing to experience especially at a larger company.

    Unfortunately, it looks like command and control has the slight edge because the new campus is being designed with an "open" floor plan i.e. cubicle farms instead of respecting the private space of their professional employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecide who you want to be and hopefully choose right (i.e. respect the creativity and professionalism of your employees)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
