    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well established company with fantastic corporate support teams. Passionate coworkers that strive to do their best work. Supportive managers. Sometimes over-eager, but often well intentioned.

    Cons

    In-flux... purchase of Andeavor and MarkWest is still in the process developing one Marathon family. With the separation of Speedway, and talk of further splits, the organization is in the middle of major transitions, and feels that way. Doesn't affect day-to-day. Folks stay focused on targets and moving forward despite some ambiguity.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are your biggest benefits.

    Cons

    Not many forward thinking individuals in management. Usually the lowest cost and fastest return is what wins the day. That works for that supervisor but supervisors don’t stay in positions long enough to feel the repercussions of those decisions.
