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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, can't be beat in this area. Mobility for new job opportunities and advancement. In IT I feel like individuals tend to move positions more frequently than other areas in the company. Supportive culture. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Findlay isn't the greatest location, although they have really been building up the downtown area in the recent years along with the corporate expansion. I've learned experiences can very widely depending on your group and direct management.

    Advice to Management

    Within the IT department there is too much red tape and paperwork for so many processes. Streamline what is required to allow for faster innovation of systems.

    I worked at Marathon Petroleum full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They rotate employees to new positions.

    Cons

    They may rotate employees to new positions but there’s hardly any subject matter experts. They put employees in positions that they’re completely unqualified for.
    They pretend like they care about the people and families but acted as if employees should be honored to work with them. The people there think they’re getting paid well but they’re getting paid crap. The location is absolutely horrendous. The town racially profiled multiple groups from San Antonio. It was so bad that they had to talk to the police department and the mayor.

    Advice to Management

    When you go meet people to “humanize” them. ACTUALLY humanize them instead of telling people with 20+ years of service by email that they’re being laid off.
