I worked at Marathon Petroleum as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

They gave me a relocation bonus when they moved me to work in a satellite office in Atlanta

Cons

They made me drive around by myself to rural and dangerous urban areas to take pictures of gas stations. In answer to my questions my boss, more often than not answered: "You wouldn't understand", there was no inter-office unity and I was isolated from the rest of the interns who worked at headquarters, the office was full of buttoned up middle aged men who did things together but never thought to invite anyone else. Terrible work environment. Oh and when I asked what they were going to use my culminating project for they told me that it probably wouldn't be used for naything.

Advice to Management

Teach your managers how to deal with interns. Teach men how to include and respect women. Create a more formal program for interns that both helps them develop AND keeps them in a more safe evironment. Challenge the interns more and include them in more meetings so they can learn. Also, be more up front about the aspects of the role.

    Pros

    Marathon Petroleum is very good at giving you interesting work assignments. People are willing to help and for the most part supportive. Pay is good and you have the potential for a yearly bonus.

    Cons

    Marathon pays their hourly people like the admin assistants very poorly. Marathon stresses integrity but they take advantage of their contractors. There are a lot of contractors from India. So much for that old slogan they had about an American company serving America. Marathon treats the engineers very well. Not so much the other disciplines.
