XOM is highly regarded as one of the successful oil and gas company. Their international scale are amazing. However, due to the huge family of XOM, some local places don't get the equal benefits with other.
I used to work for Jakarta operation, we work at least 8 hours a day. The benefits aren't that good compared to the status of oil and gas company. They said that the local authorities decide the salary range, but that's just illogical for an oil and gas company to have really low salary. Not to mention the benefits for contractors. They have the lowest income and barely any reconsideration when they talk about it on global meeting or employee forums.
One more thing is the technical stuff. Although XOM really put safety comes first above all, the intellectual management of skilled workers in there just didn't give out much knowledge or challenges for the workers. Back then I always have the thought that this place is only for "seasoned" people who just want to lay back for doing minimum stuff. Not for productive age like myself.
In conclusion, this is just the review of one local site, which is Indonesia. During global interaction, we always get jealous on how much other worker from other site get more benefit, like more salary, much more salary than us for doing the same work. It was really depressing just the thought of it. Thus, making everyday work environment unhealthy.
Very low benefit/salary (Indonesia site)
