Very Political, Good Work Life Balance

Former Engineer (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Marathon Oil

ProsMarathon offers flex time--9/80
Intelligent workforce
Compensation is pretty good, (including bonuses for professionals)

ConsMarathon is very political. They do not promote growth from within unless you are a "favorite". There is lack of diversity and cultural sensitivity. They do not offer any maternity benefits as most competitors do, this is something that definitely will keep female professionals from staying with the company or even joining. They need to re-visit their antiquated benefits package and add both maternity leave and paternity leave. Health-care deductibles are also very high if you have a family,if you are a single or even married, not so bad, but still can be better.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice is offer a better benefit package (health). Most working females save all of their vacation and sick time in order to have some time off for maternity leave. There should also be paternity leave. Do not ever let go of the 9/80 or flex time, this appears to be one of the most competitive factors of the benefit package.

A company that treats its employees well

Senior Geologist (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Marathon Oil


Pros: Generous pay, benefits, and vacation as well as a low- to moderate-stress environment and a "9/80"… Cons: The good-old-boy system is alive and well at Marathon. If you talk football scores with your manager or VP, you're going up the ladder… Advice to Senior Management: Pay more attention to those who find and act upon opportunities; pay a little less attention to those who are politically astute but who… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
