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

    Pros

    Strong company financially, co-workers are great, good compensation and benefits considering you are located in Findlay, OH. If HQ was in a larger city, I think there would be more competition with other companies for better salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Not very forward thinking, not a good work-life balance, not flexible with work schedule (working from home or adjusting work schedule), a lot of the personnel have been with the company their entire career and no nothing else. They think Marathon is the "end all be all" and in reality, the company is a small fish in the sea.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be be more progressive, practice what you preach (diversity and inclusion).

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inclusive culture, average starting salary but the benefits more than make up for it.

    Cons

    The college new hire process is stressful.I accepted the offer for a full-time position within Procurement but they weren't able to tell me my location or actual job function until 4weeks before my start date. Although the salary and benefits are great, procurement is very low on the ladder compared to other departments.
