Electronic Records Manager (Former Employee), Arlington, VA – September 28, 2013
Pros: that document control was my baby and i had to work independently most of the time.
Cons: that i am not there
A typical day a work was spend at my desk logging 4 to 5 different government deliverable from MS Outlook and into their contractual place. I have learned that it is possible to have a good working environment. The hardest part on my job was to learn how to do something that I had little knowledge and able to multi task at the same time, but the office – more... was very helpful and the most enjoyable part of my day was learning something new with a bunch of helpful people. – less
Electrical Helper (Former Employee), Morenci, AZ – July 28, 2014
I would get to work, inspect my work area, PPE, tools, & any equipment being used that day.Fill out S.P.A.(Safe Plan of Actions) & equipment pre-inspection forms.I learned allot about safety; like how to recognize hazards and handle them. well this job was one of the biggest in united states at the time and management was as big issue.To much work with – more... not enough experienced people to lead us. People were always getting hurt. I managed to avoid getting hurt and i meet allot of really good, honest, hard working people from all over the country. The hardest part was working around these people, that had no clue how dangerous this type of work could be. At the end of the day i was happy to make it home in one piece, and spend time with the family before getting to bed. – less
Account Manager (Former Employee), Columbia, MD – July 23, 2014
Very busy agency from the start of the day until the end. There was always work to be done. I learned a lot. How to use TAM 12 in depth, various types of business to rate and write. Co workers were nice. Management was fair. The most enjoyable part of the job was the knowledge I gained.
Accounting (Current Employee), Houston, TX – July 17, 2014
Pros: fridays off or half days
Cons: health care expensive, compensation, lack of opportunities
The company has a great work/life balance, allowing the employees to work flexible schedules - some schedules have off on Fridays, some have half days. There are lots of employee appreciation activities and events company-wide. the health care benefits are extremely high as well. my department in accounting has great people, compassionate managers. – more... Unfortunately the pay is not the best when working from the bottom upwards. If you transfer from a different company the managers are more willing to offer a competitive salary, but do not reward its own employees. There are also not many opportunities to grow. There are very few managerial positions, but nothing else available in terms of diverse accounting positions being a very small group. if you are fine with having a "job" for the next 10 years then this would be perfect, but if looking for a place where you can grow and develop a career then consider somewhere else. – less
Safety/ Industrial Hygiene Intern (Current Employee), New Orleans, LA – July 16, 2014
Pros: flexible time, off every other fridays.
Cons: lack of communication sometimes, have to follow up to make sure job is done correctly.
Typical work day is answer hotline that we have. The calls consist of safety questions, concerns, and incidents that we may have. I also perform industrial hygiene tasks. Recently I've been taking noise dosimeter surveys for our noise assessments. I have also perform asbestos sampling as well as indoor air quality sampling. I get along great with my – more... co workers, they have taught me many things. The hardest part about my job is probably the communication throughout the facility. I sometimes have to go back and follow up on tasks to make sure they are done correctly and safely. The most enjoyable part about my job is making sure that everyone is safe and taken care of. I like to make people happy. – less
General Foreman (Former Employee), Baytown, TX – July 14, 2014
Pros: chance for advancement was always good.
Cons: need better mentoring for the exxon work culture.
Driving from the offices on one side of Exxon to the other for meetings and visiting the work sites somewhere in between could prove challenging. Exxon has a safety culture more than most plants. learning this was challenging. The Jacobs management was involved almost continuously in meetings on a daily basis. My co-workers were very helpful in the – more... work culture at Exxon. The work culture at Exxon was more than I have been involved in at any other plant for paperwork and safety. I appreciate the safety culture at Exxon and learned a lot from it. – less
