Pros

People were awesome, very approachable. The work wasn't too bad, and someone always there to help if you ran into trouble. plenty of other interns so easy to make friends.

Cons

i was in the engineering department as an accountant. so i felt kinda left out, and there was a huge pay differential. however, they worked harder. as the accounting intern i didn't do much real work, basic knowledge of excel put me leaps and bounds beyond the rest of my department which made all work they handed to me pretty easy. however, the engineers seemed pretty busy.

Advice to Management

please give me more work. i feel bad sitting in the office doing nothing or perusing the internet. i don't want to work for a company where i don't do anything all day.

    Lots of politics. A place where supervisors management doesn't like to be challenged.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Some of the leadership are good, others need improvement. They stay competitive with salaries. Very good with vacations and health leaves.

    Cons

    Very change-adverse. Location of headquarters are very unfavorable. No one likes living in Findlay, Ohio where everything lacks, especially culture. Everyone I've talked to wants to move out of there asap.

    The company, on the other hand, has a lot of politics going on behind the scenes. If somebody challenges their process, they turn the other cheek.

    The open door policy exists only in certain organizations at Marathon. Within each organization, each department is led very differently. Depending on the manager you have will determine how far you will advance and how happy you will be in your job. There are many supervisors who operate in a "two face" manner. They will tell their subordinate about one thing, but say another when in the face of their manager. Supervisors at Marathon are not very well-trained. They look out for themselves rather than their team. They only care about their own advancement instead of who they are supposed to lead.

    Training also needs to be more uniform across each organization.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to monitor their supervisors more carefully. Many supervisors do not walk the talk and need to have their performance checked.

  2. great place to work!

    Pros

    great company culture. much room for professional advancement. good competitive pay (based on other leading competitors) and absolute best benefits.

    Cons

    the industry is the "evil oil industry" and the locations are not always the best (findlay, oh is in the middle of nowhere)

    Advice to Management

    they all do a great job, but sometimes i feel like they focus too much on formalities (and unnecessary paperwork)
