More Pros and Cons
  1. "Great company"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Project Engineer in Findlay, OH

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People generally care about the work they do and betterment of the company. Everyone is helpful. Great benefits and job security.

    Cons

    People live in a midwest bubble and don't know how, dont want to, and are slow at adjusting to cultural differences.

    Advice to Management

    Get better with performance reviews. Take feedback from employees more seriously. This shows that you support your employees.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Marathon Petroleum full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of great people. Until recently, employees were treated well and the company valued hard work, honestly and commitment. Rating 2 or 3 years ago would have been a 4 or 5. Engineers are paid at or above market rates.

    Cons

    The company has grown too fast and has had difficulty integrating employees from various locations. Failure to integrate has created issues at the corporate office with long standing employees as well as employees at locations acquired in CO and Texas in 2015 and 2018. Employees with jobs outside of the engineering groups are often paid under market wages.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better understanding of the culture of the companies you acquire to enable a better integration of various corporate cultures. Take care of employees who are willing to do what the company requests. Pay attention to concerns raised by employees and address vs ignore them.

    Pros

    Company sets high goals, has an improving culture, great pay and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees feedback as well as your management.

    I have been working at Marathon Petroleum full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good pay, but that’s comparable with the industry. Others might be paying better (such as Philips66) - Steady business, even with the swings of the market. - Large company with plenty of opportunities if you are flexible and mobile. National footprint is a plus. - Pension plan and good benefits

    Cons

    - Old School Governance model (processes, systems, behaviors, approvals) - If you are not in the “click” of the Marathon “lifers” you are not trusted - There are conflicts of interests at all levels with multiple family members getting jobs without qualifications, but just because their are family. - HQ in Findlay, OH. Really??? In the middle of nowhere, hard to travel in and out. Small town mentality for the... largest refiner in the country. - Compliance trumps everything, and there are unnecessary systems, controls, audits, etc. to monitor things normally not an issue elsewhere. There will be controls and processes in place to remove accountability of the individuals (expect everyone to be robots).

    Advice to Management

    Change is needed. You can’t operate the largest refiner in the U.S. like if was done in the 80’s and 90’s. Oil and Gas companies have evolved and modernized, but Marathon seems not to want or accept that times are different

    Pros

    Smart people who know what to do

    Cons

    Non-engineers are pretty much topped out for opportunities. Ideas from outside are not all bad.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better feeder pool of commercial experts. MPC is a big company now and needs to shed it's small-company, Midwest orientation.
