Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Valero Energy full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Strong executive leadership, positive community support, benefits are outstanding.

Cons

Slow career progression model and many corporate employees are unfamiliar with the core business.

Current Employee - Industrial Hygienist

I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time for more than a year

Pros

Well established company with fantastic corporate support teams. Passionate coworkers that strive to do their best work. Supportive managers. Sometimes over-eager, but often well intentioned.

Cons

In-flux... purchase of Andeavor and MarkWest is still in the process developing one Marathon family. With the separation of Speedway, and talk of further splits, the organization is in the middle of... major transitions, and feels that way. Doesn't affect day-to-day. Folks stay focused on targets and moving forward despite some ambiguity.
