Rumor is existing (smaller footprint) to reflect leaner MRO. Another rumor is that a few departments will be totally outsourced to third parties and not be joining the westward exodus . Maybe these are the ones that have already been hollowed out?... read more

Missing Concept of Teamwork

What gives is that Marathon is at best dysfunctional...If you rock the boat...or if you are "different" then you are a target. There is no respect for intelligence or experience. The priority is who you are related to, your age, who's [email protected]@ you've... read more

3rd Party Plant Services

The remaining plants will all be laid off. No word yet if they will contract a third party for plant services.

Another slap in the face

The land department is going downhill fast. First a land director with no land experience. Now they promote a supervisor to a manager who everyone dislikes. He has had two people within the last year quit due to him and at least one more before that... read more

Is Eagle Ford really the next big play?

I gotta admit, this article really got me puzzled. Do the Eagle Ford operations really have that much potential, and if they do how come nobody else realized it, or is this just a story to justify big investments in those operations, back in 2016... read more

Cost Cutting

What’s up with cutting everything for the remaining year? Are layoffs coming too? I thought we had a good balance sheet and now we are canceling lunches and selling marathon gear in the lobby????

MPC. Much better than MRO

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

Layoffs next week?

Older post is saying layoffs are coming the week of August 20th. Any truth to this? What departments?

HR Walks on Water

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

Can we have more layoffs, please?

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

August layoffs

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

All the Wrong Moves

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

Marathon Oil is a joke

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

We don't need money

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


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.

I applied for a land position in OKC any advice?

I am so glad I left Marathon!!!!

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

New Layoffs

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?

Increased Pay Not An Incentive

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?
