    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None management needs to go

    Cons

    Management does not stand behind what they preach. If your lazy don't perform or can lie your way thru your job then this is a place to work. Over worked under paid. If you run with the right crowd you can advance. Poor leadership since taking over people leaving everyday do to management. Instead of firing employees who bully , sexually harass can not perform there current jobs multiple complaints by supervision and co workers people are given higher paying jobs or transferred to other sites to fix the problem.

    I worked at Marathon Petroleum as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They gave me a relocation bonus when they moved me to work in a satellite office in Atlanta

    Cons

    They made me drive around by myself to rural and dangerous urban areas to take pictures of gas stations. In answer to my questions my boss, more often than not answered: "You wouldn't understand", there was no inter-office unity and I was isolated from the rest of the interns who worked at headquarters, the office was full of buttoned up middle aged men who did things together but never thought to invite anyone else. Terrible work environment. Oh and when I asked what they were going to use my culminating project for they told me that it probably wouldn't be used for naything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your managers how to deal with interns. Teach men how to include and respect women. Create a more formal program for interns that both helps them develop AND keeps them in a more safe evironment. Challenge the interns more and include them in more meetings so they can learn. Also, be more up front about the aspects of the role.
