    Pros

    Takes care of families. Good corporate system.

    Canton site has terrible work life balance. Chronically underinvested and understaffed.

    Stop looking at Solomon numbers, visit the site and determine what's needed.

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

    Attitude
    Support from Upper Management

    Advice to Management

    There should be a list of qualities for management, rather than promoting someone based off of how long they've worked there.
    Also, one should not be pigeon-holed into a role just because they only have experience in that area. If one would is willing to put in the time and effort, both in and outside of work, management should support those efforts! PASSION > TECHNICALITIES.
    One should not be penalized for not coming in early. Peer pressure from management is VERY unprofessional.

    I worked at Marathon Petroleum full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Pay. That was about it

    Cons

    Competing daily for your job.
    Once Management decided they didn't like you, you were guaranteed to be gone.
    Micromanaged all the time.
    Actually threatened with physical violence and HR managed to victim blame and basically say I was a hysterical, over-exaggerating, drama starting woman.
    No home life--worked three months straight without a day off.
    Your coworkers will stab you in the back the first chance that they get--no one is your friend there.
    Fire you under false allegations so you can't come back and sue them. My firing was a direct retaliation from the physical violence investigation.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a spine and actually DO something about the problems brought up to you, don't get rid of the whistleblower because it's the easiest route.

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation and Benefits
    Emphasis on movement throughout different roles in the company
    Culture of Safety in refineries
    Locations all around America

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance
    Most people that I worked with did not enjoy their jobs
    Overly aggressive HR department
    Movement required to proceed up ladder

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees to reduce load on each employee. It was discouraging as an intern hearing so many tell me that they hated how much the company required of them.
