    Pros

    Marathon is overall a great company. Gym in the building (used to be free, but budget cuts ...), vanpools, big enough to play with the big leagues, but small enough to avoid a lot of the big oil scandal. The company encourages movement within allowing for temporary assignments (in Houston or elsewhere). They offer partial tuition reimbursement, pay for the CPA exam, and Becker review.

    Cons

    Outsourced a large part of their accounting and IT a few years back and it remains that way. Many people complain that they can feel the difference in how the accountants and other 'overhead' groups are treated, versus the engineers and the money makers. Pay scale doesn't really accomodate horizonal movement. If you have no aspirations for upper management, you can top out pretty early.

    Advice to Management

    Bring accounting and IT back in-house. It would do tremendous things to the company's retention, recruiting, and employee morale.
