    Pros

    Marathon is a very good operator of refineries. They will spend money on projects that do not make money in order to have safe and environmental friendly operations.
    If you are not a creative person, then Marathon is the place to work. Marathon promotes people who can quickly learn a position, make minimal mistakes, push out the work as quickly as possible and complete their work in less than 8 hours. Marathon managers are trained to keep the status quo and follow the plans from their upper management.

    Cons

    Marathon is not a nimble company when reacting to market changes. They study and build consensus before they react. For profit oriented capital projects, you should expect at least two years between conception and installation.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of UPOD (Under Promise and Over Deliver). Everyone is putting fat into their numbers so they can meet their targets.
