Great culture, lack of diverse projects

Geophysicist (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsThe 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.

ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementWork 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.
