A company behind the times

IT Specialist (Former Employee) Houston, TX

ProsMarathon has decent pay and good benefits. If you can manipulate people then you will be able to get raises without doing much actual work. This is a great company for people who are poor performers.

ConsEvery decision is made by company politics and corporate bureaucracy. There are few opportunities for promotion outside of the field. Rather than acting as a single organization with a common goal, each department takes an "our way or the highway" approach that prevents work from being done. The "good-old-boy" network and flagrant nepotism make many workers untouchable. The managers are greedy, self-serving, and refuse to take responsibility for their inept leadership.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
