    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum

    Pros

    I am challenged almost everyday and have a good relationship with my direct supervisors and managers. Training is encouraged and people are willing to help. The company has a vast network of knowledgeable people that are a phone call away. Overtime is sometimes required but not often. I would recommend Marathon for any young engineer to gain great experience. The work is fast-paced and challenging. If you can not multitask and manage time, this is not the job for you.

    Cons

    The company does not have a good plan for advancement of their young professionals. It is up to the individual to find positions that keep them challenged. They do a poor job of keeping and attracting quality people. They underutilized their coop program. Highly talented coops have gained wonderful experience at Marathon and go work for a competitor because the company reacts too slow. Marathon is a Midwest company that has operations in the south where salaries are higher. The company loses quality people every year because they refuse to stay competitive with salary in the south.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the career development plan for professionals. Consider a salary survey and try to stay more competitive with the current market in the southern region. Keep the talented people in the company.
