    I have been working at MarkWest Energy Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    DuPont Schedule. Great Benefits ($1.20 per $1.00 company 401k match + Pension)

    Cons

    Pay is alright, well above national average, though in comparison to other plants in the area the pay could increase. Company advancement is not likely, or rather there is a cap to what you can make and what position to can get to.

    I have been working at MarkWest Energy Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, best benefits around, good experience for energy if working in the right department

    Cons

    Overstaffed. Most work was done by noon with individuals sitting idle for the remainder of the day. More and more people are growing nervous about the need for their job. Because of this, many senior employees are afraid to share job responsibilities with other team members. Many groups/departments do not 'play nicely' with each other - cynicism and distrust is evident amongst team members.

    I worked at MarkWest Energy Partners

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent 401k match, great location downtown

    Cons

    Difficult to move up, managers care more about the bottom line than their people. Marathon has destroyed the culture that made this company good to work with. Losing their best employees to other companies, they don't do anything to retain the good talent that they do have.
