      I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great people overall who want to do the right thing.

      Cons

      The actions of management do not match the stated company values. In the field, safety is #1 priority as it should be but not always the case with corporate management. They say they desire diversity and people who will stand up to do the right thing, but this is not true. I was a model employee for my entire time there until a new manager started three months ago. Now I have been micromanaged, second-guessed and questioned...

      Advice to Management

      Follow your company culture or change it. Provide a means for conflict resolution when a model employee seems to change instantly. It's not the employee but the manager.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Marathon Petroleum full-time for more than 9 years

        Pros

        Good pay, Union benefits from a strong past union. This place is a good stepping stone to a better job.

        Cons

        Depending on what department you work in your experience will vary greatly. Management promotes unqualified workers to be your supervisors. Union takes more money from you than they deserve for the services provided (should be a set rate). Work schedule is not flexible. If you really need a day off you have to call in sick.

        Advice to Management

        Work towards a meritocracy. Promote people based on their abilities. When employees request time off, give it to them. They are giving you a heads up so you can fill the position instead of just calling out sick like they could.

      • "Texas city"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

          Good pay, good benefits. Large company

          Cons

          Disapproves of CEO

          I worked at Marathon Petroleum full-time

          Pros

          Stable Job. Good People. Pretty Good Pay.

          Cons

          No career growth. Decisions seem to all get made on the fly.... in fact, I am certain they all get made on the fly (at least at a lower level)..... I watched it happen hundreds of times.

          Advice to Management

          This is easier said than done, but I would focus on making the culture a bit more meritocratic . I think a lot of cultural problems would be solved over time.
