Pros

Marathon offers flex time--9/80
Intelligent workforce
Compensation is pretty good, (including bonuses for professionals)

Cons

Marathon is very political. They do not promote growth from within unless you are a "favorite". There is lack of diversity and cultural sensitivity. They do not offer any maternity benefits as most competitors do, this is something that definitely will keep female professionals from staying with the company or even joining. They need to re-visit their antiquated benefits package and add both maternity leave and paternity leave. Health-care deductibles are also very high if you have a family,if you are a single or even married, not so bad, but still can be better.

Advice to Management

My advice is offer a better benefit package (health). Most working females save all of their vacation and sick time in order to have some time off for maternity leave. There should also be paternity leave. Do not ever let go of the 9/80 or flex time, this appears to be one of the most competitive factors of the benefit package.
