    Pros

    Great working atmosphere with challenging tasks. Great compensation and advancement opportunities.
    Awesome company culture and easy to make new friends through the on-boarding program.

    Cons

    Findlay is not necessarily the young person's dream for a place to kick off their life, but the company provides so many advancement opportunities to other locations. You can also live in Bowling Green during your time in Findlay which offers more of a nightlife due to the university.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider capitalizing on the Hess acquisition to add some other operations on the east coast to expand Marathon's location opportunities.

    Pros

    Great company with excellent work life balance. Fantastic 401K and pension benefits. Competitive compensation relative to industry peer group,.

    Cons

    As the site grows, sometimes I feel as if we're understaffed. However, this does bring about new opportunities for growth and exposure to new projects.

    Pros

    Everyone in my department was warm and welcoming when I started. I have been given a lot of help and guidance with everything I need to learn about my duties. The salary is good and my co workers are nice. I could definitely see myself staying with them for a long time.

    Cons

    There are no specific negatives I have experienced so far. The engineers sometimes seem to work extra hours to make sure everything in the refinery is working fine, but they seem to be happy doing it. Maybe hire a few extra engineers to spread out the work.

    Pros

    MPC has a wonderful compensation package (401K matching and pension, excellent salary and bonus program, good health benefits) and great work-life balance. The company is truly focused on safety of the workers. The company is continuing to grow with multiple opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    Career advancement typically requires relocating to another site. However, the company has a good relocation program which includes lateral transfers for MPC employed spouses and job assistance for spouses employed outside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staffing should be adjuste to support the current level of growth

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation & benefits are great. 7% match on 401k. Pension plan. Charitable contribution matching. Lots of opportunity to move upwards in the company due to a hiring freeze some years ago leaving an age gap between management and developed employees. Lots of opportunity to still figure out "what you wanna do when you grow up". They allow and encourage movement between departments and locations.

    Cons

    That same age gap has lead to some tribal knowledge that is some times difficult to track down, but we the youth are doing a great job of documenting it to pass down to new hires as they onboard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recently attended an Extended Onboarding event that four Directors spoke about their backgrounds and answered questions. Keep doing events like this for those coming in. They shared some great insight and did a great job of humanizing themselves as opposed to being these untouchable faces in the cloud.

    Great benefits, strong safety culture and great work environment. Significant internal oppportunities for both laterals and promotions. Marathon is a rapidly growing well run company. Its an exciting place to come to work to everyday.

    Cons

    To whom much is given much is expected. Significant personal sacrifices are made in the name of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure proper resources are provided to the people on the front lines so we can handle growth.

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum

    Pros

    Marathon worked very well with my schedule while interning and also gave me valuable real life experience. The employees were very friendly and inclusive in all activities.

    Cons

    Located in Findlay, OH there was not much to do. Also, I did not work directly under my supervisor so it was difficult to be evaluated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the high caliber internships! I really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone who asks. Definitely one of the better companies to work for.
