I have been working at Marathon Oil full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Possible to have some of the best work / life balance in the industry. : 9/80 flex days, lots of vacation. Also possible to overwork, and give back vacation, depending on the project you have.
Good projects in Bakken, Eagleford.
Lots of room to grow for young employees as the older ones are retiring.
Friendly, "family" culture with lots of long time employees.

Cons

Still too Bureaucratic for an independent. Company is working at becoming more efficient.

Budget is Focused on Bakken and Eagleford - sensitive to oil price drops in the future. Needs to keep portfolio broad.

    I have been working at Marathon Oil full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Marathon has flexible schedules and great benefits. The people are the best part of this company, specifically the people in the field.

    Cons

    If you're not an engineer, you are not valued here. There is not a formal developmental program for new hires or experienced professionals (engineers excluded). Additional education (MBA, PMP, etc.) is not valued. Poor/average performers excel.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers, not enough leaders!
