Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men

ExxonMobil has worked very hard to make the culture more flexible and accommodating to all its employees, not just women. It has come a long way since the old "Exxon" days in terms of women in management and embracing diversity and inclusion as key business drivers. While the very top is still white male, there is progress in the middle that should eventually lead to a diverse boardroom. The new campus is an amazing shift towards collaboration, openness and creativity. You area able to grab your laptop and work anywhere, even at home if needed. The wellness facility is top notch and there finally is a day care facility near work. It is about as good as any job can get, if not better. As for maternity leave, there are many options provided including extended time off, part time work and remote work.
Women are generally advancing if you are slightly outspoken and fit a certain personality - not giggly, not "sweet", not overly fashionable. You have to be driven and behave maturely - and even then many will assume you are younger/less experienced than male peers who are your same age (this goes for the under-35 set). I'm now in a lower/middle management role and work for a woman, who works for a woman - so there are many role models and at varying times we've had several women on our division's leadership team. I took 2 maternity leaves a few years ago and don't feel they've worked against me. The day to day is harder - it means making up for the fact that you leave "early" by working harder in the day and being willing to work from home in evenings.
If you find hostility from some men out here, it's not personal. There are men here in every facet of the company that still think we don't belong out here, regardless of the job or how well you do it. There's a number of ways people try to figure out if/when you'll have a child. The company doesn't like being told no, and though it differs based on the job, turning down an offer to go to another site is typically frowned upon. If you don't want to move a lot, this might not be the place (still depending on your job). Some sites are also more stuck back in the day (like mine) than others. If you can avoid the politics and focus on building relationships, it should be good.
