Pros – Recruited to Marathon and interested in its unique blend of entrepreneurial freedom and process controls. Seemed just about right. Found that Marathon went the extra-mile for employees with "scarce-skills". First rate facilities, benefits, amenities and employee quality of life. Can be a proud, productive and fulfilled employee.
Cons – Strong paradigms of long term employees often hard to shed resulting in resistance to change with the company, it's business strategy and the times. Increasing controls overhead dampens productivity.
Advice to Senior Management – Continue to differentiate Marathon from its competitors and retain the competitive advantage in attracting talent. Find oil and grow organically.
