Great place to gain some experience, and then move on

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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 Senior Management- 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.

good Pay , bad business sense

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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. … Advice to Senior Management: A happy employee is a productive employee. Work at… More
