    Pros

    Pay is great. Tend to move you every few years early in your career.

    Cons

    Location is horrible. Culture is not great - work, work, work and senior leadership micromanages.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people like you pay them. Look at diversity - white males seem to win promotions more than others because they are similar to the hiring manager.

    Pros

    They pay good and have decent benefits. Location isn't bad. Some of the people that work there can become like your family.

    Cons

    Expect some workers to always work over, and some don't even have to work 8 hours.
    Supervisors will say one thing to your face, then something completely different to other coworkers and their supervisors.
    They will tell you that you have done good, then give bad evaluations without any warnings.
    Some employees are allowed to make mistakes, others get punished.
    Some employees are expected to do high volumes of tests, while others don't have to do the minimum expected.
    They expect you to be able to work whenever they need you, but of course that only applies to some people.
    Hours are awful.

    Advice to Management

    Hire supervisors that are fair, not two faced, and care about the company and its workers not only getting themselves ahead.

    Pros

    Regular paycheck , 401K matching, bonuses and retirement , good vacation, decent medical benefits that's about it I don't have much good to say about this company

    Cons

    Management is a JOKE. The people they promote to be supervisors have ZERO supervisory or leadership skills. Senior managers don't give a crap about the employees in their department. The good ole boys network is alive and kicking in full gear. The managers and supervisors just look out for themselves period. Marathon is stuck in a time warp they refuse to embrace and use technology to allow employees more flexibility in work arrangements. There is no such thing as telecommuting or flex time...it's so archaic. They also pay lip service to embracing diversity and having well rounded teams valuing everyone's strengths - ha! There is one model employee they like and if you don't fit that mold or aren't an ass-kissing yes person, you are bullied and marginalized and have zero chance of advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the clouds and quit thinking that just because you're a manager you have all the right answers. LISTEN to employees, be more forward thinking and not so stuck in the past. Trust your people too. Humility goes a long way and people will respect and give you much more for treating them well rather than putting them down and not hearing them out!
