It's not necessarily the oil standard, but Exxon Mobil is the world's largest integrated oil company (ahead of Royal Dutch Shell and BP). Exxon Mobil engages in oil and gas exploration, production, supply, transportation, and marketing worldwide. In 2011 it reported proved reserves of 24.9 billion barrels of oil equivalent, including its major holdings in oil sands through Imperial Oil. Exxon Mobil's 36 refineries in 20 countries have a throughput capacity of more than 6.2 million barrels per day. The company supplies refined products to more than 25,000 gas stations in 100 countries. Exxon Mobil is also a major petrochemical producer. Geographic Reach With oil and gas holdings in Europe, the US, and eastern Canada, the company is looking for new opportunities in West Africa (both onshore and off) in South America, and in the former Soviet Union. In 2011 the company agreed to spend $1 billion in a joint venture with Rosneft to explore oil and gas fields in the Black Sea. Operations Through ExxonMobil Chemical, the company develops and sells petrochemicals (including ethylene, propylene, and their derivatives, which make up the base of most other petrochemicals and plastics). Another unit mines coal and other minerals. Exxon Mobil also has stakes in electric power plants in China. Financial Analysis Bouncing back from the global recession (which hammered commodity prices) in 2010 the company posted much higher revenues and income thanks to increased prices and greater demand for oil and gas. Higher oil prices, increased demand and ramped up production drove revenues and income even higher in 2011. To raise cash to pay down debt, in 2012 the company sold its North Sea assets to Apache for $1.25 billion. Strategy In a move to replace the decline of oil reserves from its mature fields, in 2010 the company acquired XTO Energy. The $41 billion all stock deal added XTO Energy's unconventional natural gas production assets (45 trillion cu. ft. equivalent of shale gas, tight gas, coal bed methane, and shale oil). Adding to its shale holdings in the US, the company also purchased Ellora Energy in 2010 for $695 million. In 2011 it acquired Marcellus Shale gas producers Phillips Resources and TWP for $1.7 billion. In 2012 the company agreed to buy Celtic Exploration, which will give it 545,000 net acres in the liquids-rich Montney shale, 104,000 net acres in the Duvernay shale, and other acreage in Alberta. It is also investing heavily in deepwater exploration (in water depths greater than 1,350 feet). In 2010, in response to the BP oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, Exxon Mobil announced it was joining forces with Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell, and ConocoPhillips to create a $1 billion rapid-response joint venture capable of capturing and containing some 100,000 barrels of oil in water depths of 10,000 feet. In 2011 the company reported a major oil find in the Gulf, with potentially 700 million barrels of recoverable oil equivalent. In response to market demand for cleaner fuels, Exxon Mobil is investing more than $1 billion in three refineries (Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Baytown, Texas; and Antwerp, Belgium) to increase the supply of cleaner burning diesel by about 6 million gallons per day. In 2009 it made its first major investment in developing biofuels, agreeing to spend $600 million in an algae-to-fuel project with biotech firm Synthetic Genomics.

Used to be good. Now not so much.

Experience may vary as there are many plants and many different teams so I cant say for all. Benefits and perks used to be great. But now since mostly asian/local bosses took over, all thrown out the window.

Bureaucratic, Political and Inward looking company

Too many man hours and job functions performing unnecessary internal processes. Very little focus on business development and business opportunies. P&L largely contributed from upstream E&P quity. Little efforts todevelope business for downstream business. To rise, you will need to focus on your increasing your visibility and network with management. Have multiple examples of people rising through the ranks simply but threathening to resign. Not a company for business development roles. Day to day focus on upwad management

Productive workplace

Enjoy working at ExxonMobil as the jobscope is very clear n the management is well organised. Able to learn stuffs that are out of my jobscope when I have the time. Only cons is that they can't offer me a permanent position as they do not have enough quota.

Lost faith in management

What used to once be one of the best places to work has quickly become a dooms place. Leadership is bad and it has killed the trust among employees. Whoever has a chance to leave is leaving.
