I worked at Marathon Petroleum

Pros

- Benefits and pay are very good when compared to other industries. About par for oil industry.
- I found the work very interesting, always something different happening.
- Company takes safety and regulations very seriously.
- Great work/life balance. Midwest company with solid values.
- Operates some of the nation's premier refineries (Garyville, Robinson)
- Midwest focus should allow the company high profitability well into the future.
- Bottom line is that I feel MPC would be a great company for chemical engineers, less so for other disciplines.

Cons

- No longer an integrated oil company.
- Training for new hires is poor when compared to other oil companies.
- Work locations
- Little advancement opportunity for non-ChemEs. I feel that this will get even worse with the recent split of the company.
- Hiring of new engineers is terribly managed. The best interns that I worked with or attended university with ALL went to work for different oil companies such as BP, Chevron, Shell. Terribly short-sighted to completely lose out on a group of young, talented engineers. Caliber of the schools where MPC recruits has steadily declined over the last several years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Firm believer that once you have talent in the door you don't lose track. I don't understand why recruitment was halted at some of the better schools where MPC had a presence. MPC would be a great place to work, but since they are not hiring the best people I am worried about the company's future.

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum

    Pros

    The pay scale is good.

    Cons

    Marathon has the management style of the olden days. Employees are harassed, belittled, not appreciated, brow beat, taken for granted, and abused daily. This mis treatment and dis respect is shown to the hourly employees, by management that doesn't have a clue how the process really works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A happy employee is a productive employee. Work at realizing that your production employees are your greatest asset.
