All you defenders of the status quo, please explain why MRO has a market cap under 50% of its former sister MPC, perhaps poor strategic leadership, especially when the firms were equal when split. Before you say ‘it’s the business we’re in,’ why has... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Marathon Oil Corp.
Is this true?
Older post is saying layoffs are coming the week of August 20th. Any truth to this? What departments?
Ok where are we moving?
It’s an industry norm but dayyum.... are layoffs even necessary at this point?
The Biblical standard of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” just does not cut the mustard at MRO’s HR Department. They IMPROVED the Bible, so that the Marathon’s ‘holy book’ requires that one must “do unto others as THEY would have... read more
Only this time focus on dead weight in the company instead of the most experienced and knowledgeable workers. I'm sick and tired of looking at smug faces of people who barely know how to tie their own shoes and not to mention how to do their jobs who... read more
Been hearing that we can expect more layoffs at Marathon Oil sometime next month. The person I heard it from is not the most reliable source though, so I was hoping that somebody here might know more about it and share it with the rest of us. Or an... read more
Marathon Oil is the most ultra political work environment I have ever worked in. Where Bravado, Bluster, saying hello and then ploying to throw a person under the bus and brown nosing are king and anything of substance is of the least valued. The... read more
This company is a joke. I finally made the decision to leave and I don't regret it one bit. I'm so tired of nepotism and idiotic politics that value brownnosing over actual good work. My advice to everybody here is to get out before this ship sinks... read more
Who’s with me?
Permian lost 3 or 4 people recently. Why is everyone leaving?
Houston-based Marathon Oil Corp. (NYSE: MRO) was the lowest public company ranked overall in a May 21 New York Times study that calculated a company's profits returned to employees vs. shareholders... read more
If they want to "restructure" they should remove HR and upper management from the equation when it comes to hiring and "letting people go". I can't tell you how many people I've seen hired or transferred to different departments by HR who don't have... read more
continued purging of 50+ and experience, sprinkled in with a few sacrificial youngsters to avoid appearance of age discrimination. so clever. the end is near.
What layoffs are this week?
I applied for a land position in OKC any advice?
Marathon use to be the standard. A great company that cares about its employees. I worked for Marathon in multiple states and still miss most of the people there. It started with Lee Tillman and his HR VP Deanna Jones. Now every time I look at... read more
Perm employees only. Contractors are safe this round.
I heard layoffs are occuring at Marathon today, does anyone know what departments?
I am an intern at Marathon what ways are employees spied on by HR?
The recent ‘forced’ attendance discussions feeding us the pablum that “studies have shown that increased pay is not an incentive to perform better” piqued my interest. For argument’s sake, let us assume it is a correct statement. Let’s just pretend... read more
So did everyone get the 2% that was reported on the Wave? Post your raise percentages here.
Why is it that some people get promoted and others don’t? Same experience, same asset, what gives?
Google "Cramer admits his biggest investing mistakes" and watch the video. Roughly a minute in, he provides his opinion on Marathon. Worth a peek. Lee has made Marathon Oil the laughing stock of Wall Street.

TA is getting hit today!
Who is going?
Didn't make the good workplace list like most of our peers. Anybody know why?
Did others notice that questions cannot be asked anonymously any more? They asked for name and location.
So what's new with our wonderful Supply Chain team... haven't seen much on them here lately.
Hey, sports fans! Yesterday, I saw a new posting whose title began with, "A Diller, A Dollar." It's no longer amongst the postings list. Any ideas who's minding this store and why?
Age discrimination is not the only illegal employment practice at MRO. Unfortunately, most who have been discriminated against were “released” some time ago. (Yes. I said, ‘released!’ Ultimately, it’s like an escape from prison or some other... read more
Paragraph 3 of Marathon’s press release dated June 30, 2011, announcing the company unveiling of a new logo states: “The process for creating a new logo began in February with an employee survey. Results of the feedback emphasized eight key... read more
The primary problem at Marathon Oil Company is that following the company split from Marathon Petroleum in 2012, most- -if not all- -of the open executive and management positions were filled by individuals devoid of integrity. This was the beginning... read more
Anyone have news on the upcoming reorganization? Who will be hit? What groups will benefit? I’ll the be good or bad for us?
Has Marathon stepped up to assist of its employees flooded by Harvey?
