I have been working at Marathon Oil full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Possible to have some of the best work / life balance in the industry. : 9/80 flex days, lots of vacation. Also possible to overwork, and give back vacation, depending on the project you have.
Good projects in Bakken, Eagleford.
Lots of room to grow for young employees as the older ones are retiring.
Friendly, "family" culture with lots of long time employees.

Cons

Still too Bureaucratic for an independent. Company is working at becoming more efficient.

Budget is Focused on Bakken and Eagleford - sensitive to oil price drops in the future. Needs to keep portfolio broad.

Recommends

    In IT everyone working to do the right thing

    Cons

    Significant Management change the resulting impact to the corporate culture remains to be seen.
    IT Leadership had no direction and somewhat disfunctional, tough to work across silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful not to ruin a great corporate culture.
    IT Leadership needs to figure out what IT needs to be and plot a course.
