I have been working at Marathon Oil full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The people and open environment make it a joy to come to work. Flexible 9/80 is great for work/life balance and competitive benefits. Several internal organizations/communities make exchanging technical work across assets easy and fun.

Cons

Lack of diverse projects. Marathon seems to be focusing on onshore US and is reducing it's international and conventional assets. Lack of exploration success internationally doesn't leave many assets to work on outside of shale plays. Best assets and exploration are reserved for people with 20+ experience while anyone with less than 10 years is sent to the "shale factory"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on diversifying your portfolio and create opportunities for employees to gain conventional skills needed in the industry, otherwise they will leave to get those experiences elsewhere.

    Pros

    You walk in the door with no less than 3 weeks vacation and the opportunity to have every other Friday off. The company has great values and is pretty stable. Compensation and Benefits are very competitive.

    Cons

    If you are not the type of person who enjoys staying in the same role for the next 20 or 30 years this is not the place for you. This organization is very flat! There is no visable development plans for non petro technical roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Succession Planning is key. It's very important to understand where I can go within "this" organization in my career.
