    Pros

    Pay is much better than other locations and blue collar industries, lots of turnover and opportunities

    Lack of professionalism and work-life balance health benefits and retirement packages could be better. Not a lot of value for the people and culture.

    Getting better, but need an HR overhaul

    Pros

    Big company stability; excellent pay and good benefits. Retirement of pension plus 401k is almost unheard of today, but we have it still. Flexibility is improving (though needs to improve further to attract top talent); finally understanding people today need more in the way of knowing what their future holds (i.e. career discussions, professional development, etc.). Also beginning to recognize we’re a good, ethical, responsible company and need to tell our story better. Finally starting to fully integrate and operate as one company after the Andeavor acquisition. Beginning to recognize great talent existed in both legacy companies and can take us into an even better future if we work together rather than fight to retain the worst aspects of our former selves.

    Cons

    HR centralization has been a culture-killer. Best thing the CHRO has done had been to push for more flexibility; everything else has been a disaster. She is toxic, clueless as to anything but her own narrative, and rules by fear. She is everything HR should not be.

    Excellent but Findlay culture slows progress

    Pros

    Salary and benefits People Safety, health and environment focus Interesting work

    Cons

    While Findlay, Ohio is a nice small Midwest town and the historical HQ of MPC, the culture of the town is what makes it attractive. Quite, slow pace, Midwest values. But when that combines with a company that needs to keep pace with changes in the way we attract, develop and retain the best people, we fall short/take too long/or resist doing things differently.
