    Findlay Ohio isn’t the largest town. LeBron James may be leaving the state. I like Florida and Texas they do not have state income taxes

    Pros

    Great Pay. But not worth the issues that are incured

    Cons

    Leadership and promotions are done by the buddy system "Who knows who" not by skills qualified to lead a team or group.
    Desision of finances and budget are utilized by Techical supervisors who know less than the interns do.
    Supervision takes all the credit for teams hard work and blames the for the failures
    Managment only cares about the checkboxes they can click at end of year to get there bonuses.
    Loss many team members due to the last 2 supervisors and the trend still continues.
    Espects no family life for your kids. Wants you to be available 24/7 even when on vacation

    Advice to Management

    Hire managment and supervision on knowledge of that criteria field. Not based on how many years you have known them.
    Current managment has delayed and cost company big amounts of finnces and blamed it on the staff below them.
    If your supervisor or manager cant answer the same questions that are required for a employee to get hired. He shouldnt be in that field.

    Pros

    I'm thankful I have a job close to home.

    Cons

    As an employee of Marathon petroleum that just bought my former employer Andeavor before that it was Western refining we still haven't been contacted by corporate about the changes and low man on the totem pole I haven't gotten any kind of pro's out of all these things. What incentives are they willing to offer their current employees to stay with them??

    Advice to Management

    Better trainings and communication between all levels of management.
