    Former Employee - Order Contact DCP in Moncton, NB

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

    Pros

    Great place to work overall. The people are amazing to work with. Manangement is professional.

    Cons

    - In Customer Service as a Contractor if you slip up once you can get fired in a split second for anything! To agressive in your email? Fired. Have an opinion? Fired.
    - Word of advice. Never ever attempt to voice your opinion or be agressive in your emails or over the phone.
    - Management is very Black and White. They see the grey area but it doesn't really ever get resolved because of so many other advanced issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Tell your Contractors to be careful with there opionions, and what they say. If they can be fired for saying anything agressive in a email then why employee them?

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    We have so much time off because we need it. The company expects a lot. The harder you work the more they expect. They do treat us very well. Hard work, being safe and positivity are important in order to survive in the work place.

    Cons

    Do not stray from status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the people who work for you make you look good.

    Current Employee - Network Analyst in Toronto, ON
    Current Employee - Network Analyst in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at ExxonMobil full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the past the company was always a step behind in technology. Always waiting for others to try it first, but in the last 4 years, they have been ahead of pack.

    Cons

    Working in a large company does not allow an individual the chance to learn outside of their current job role. While I understand Networking, I lack the skills of other components of the infrastructure. There was always another group that handled those, you only had to worry about your piece of the pie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees. They are the core of the organization.

    Distant management

    You could do more by giving employees more leeway in doing their work.
    Most management cadres only care about covering their butts.
