    I worked at Marathon Petroleum (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at the MPC headquarters and one of the refineries. I felt that the environment at the company was very family orientated. Though it is a large company the people in higher positions made an effort to engage with all employees. I felt that the company invests a lot in their employees and tries to do what is best.

    Cons

    It is a competitive environment and at times I felt the job was stressful. I can imagine that this would not be the case in all departments and this is likely due to the fact that I am a young career professional just starting out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees and engage with them throughout the work week. It brings all people at the company together.

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong company financially, co-workers are great, good compensation and benefits considering you are located in Findlay, OH. If HQ was in a larger city, I think there would be more competition with other companies for better salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Not very forward thinking, not a good work-life balance, not flexible with work schedule (working from home or adjusting work schedule), a lot of the personnel have been with the company their entire career and no nothing else. They think Marathon is the "end all be all" and in reality, the company is a small fish in the sea.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be be more progressive, practice what you preach (diversity and inclusion).
