I think its is time for Marathon Leadership to look in the mirror (good to great) and ask how do we position this company for the future generation energy needs - Transition from climate changing hydrocarbons to cleaner energy. We need both for... — read more
I haven’t been here that long so I don’t know, has MRO ever been in a worse situation than it is now?
When will they realize we lost some of the best Landman this company has ever had? You think Ed leaving would make them wake the f up. AB, MB, CC, TC, BA are just a few that we’ve lost that are much better than half the staff we have left. These... — read more
Can anyone explain to me if MRO must have this many managers? I think the vast majority of them are absolutely unnecessary. They are there just to milk the money for nothing. Maybe some things would get better here if they fired managers who do... — read more
Banks and investors have realized that the shale plays are a Ponzi schemes and not giving loans or investments. What happened to all the profits when oil was $60 - $125??? Not to mention GRU invested over $5 billion dollars into NON-PRODUCTIVE... — read more
The only thing that is keeping MRO afloat is EG production. Gru (aka Lee Tillman) has destroyed so much value at MRO, all while taking the highest pay and compensation in the industry for 3+ years. Gru and his pale, stale, male, gang has destroyed... — read more
It seems that former MRO employees that were laid off are blacklisted from future employment. They’re also telling major recruiting firms in Houston that they will not hire previous MRO employees. You have to ask why….and its because of the 401k... — read more
A Drilling Manager Lindsey, that F’’d up an exploration REX well beyond recovery, not only still works at MRO but got promoted to Drilling Manager. She disregarded all advice almost had a well blow out and did not ensure the wellhead was rated for... — read more
Tillman and et al have been running the company like they own it and piggy bank, and not the interest of its share holders.
Please tell me what these guys have done to lead MRO? Permian, Delaware…uneconomical to drill and ORB, Pay Rock acreage…uneconomical to drill. That’s 4-5 billion dollars spent and very little activity, what’s the ROI?
Talk to anyone at EnCap they’ll laugh out loud and tell you that Tillman way overpaid for Pay Rock’s acreage in the ORB. No negotiation just paid asking price no questions asked…a desperate act of trying to be a player in shale. What a sad... — read more
Have you notices any significant improvements with the situation here since the oil prices started rising?
Is it just my subjective feeling or has the company never emphasized micromanagement as they are doing now? I feel like I’m under the lens all the time. They create meaningless and unnecessary anxiety for their employees. I mean, it's not unusual... — read more
I'm especially interested in how come new hires out-earn current employees? Do you have any idea why this is so? It is demoralizing. I have been working here for years and despite everything I have given to this company all these years, the newbie... — read more
I read all the negatives on this website about MRO. Why not turn this into a positive page and list things which are great about this company? No negative or naysayers comments please.
Marathon Petroleum received more tax benefits than any other US oil company while also cutting about 9% of its workforce https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/18/marathon-petroleum-job-cuts-pandemic-benefits
These were the two longest and worst years in my not-so-short career.
Should we be honest in it or are they just gauging how bad morale is until they feel like they need to do something? I bet it’ll take them 6 months to process the data. My guess is this gives them an easy target to get rid of people with bad... — read more
K, E &G have destroyed this department. Please please please let companies start hiring landmen again so I can escape this he-l I am living in.
Let's say you were a company with a lot of money, you have a great vision for the future and you want to grow, would you buy Marathon Oil? Unlike some who have shared hopes in their posts that someone will buy us, I still hope not. After all, who... — read more
I do not see any improvement and it is becoming increasingly clear to me that there is no future here. I have been looking for a new job for months now and I hope to leave here soon because I do not plan to be here next year. There are more and more... — read more
It is easy for me to find a job outside of MRO, I am not hampered by age or skillset, but I often think of those who are older and do not have the skills to enable them to find a job outside of OG. What are your experiences with transitioning to a... — read more
I am no longer at all interested in working for this company. ESC getting cut was the last straw. The company is being degraded from all sides and there is no point in staying here anymore. I don’t want to be here when they pull the next ridiculous... — read more
Someone asked a good question: what does an employee have to do to get a bonus here? The answer is certainly not that I need to work harder because I already work hard enough.
All the outsiders (markwest, Andeavor, external “experienced” hires) have brought nothing by problems and drama. Most came in thinking they new everything, and brought a good company down. We used to bring in our own talent from local school and... — read more
I haven't been able to find a new job for more than 4 months. However, maybe my age (near 45) is also a big problem, so I guess I won't be able to leave here for a while. I only got to the interview phase twice and that discouraged me a bit... — read more
I have been in this company for a long time and I think that the morale has never been worse. There have been very bad and difficult periods before, but it seems to me that people had more enthusiasm for work. Now I have absolutely no will to work... — read more
Another one bites the dust. How many people are we going to lose before they realize we have a problem here?
Marathon really stepping up the wendys twitter style rebuttal. great use of staff time. Is this new replacement for the first or second director your new vp chased off and hoped nobody would notice? pinky shimmer does like her queen do. Nothing but... — read more
Is it just my department or did Marathon Oil in general decide that merit and experience mean nothing and that knowing to kiss the right a-s means everything? The wrong people are constantly getting promoted and it's starting to affect our... — read more
I hope I’m right and that it’s true that the layoffs have slowed down considerably lately. For a while, I was constantly getting news that they had laid off someone I knew. I haven't heard from anyone in a long time now. Fortunately, because I was... — read more
I think if we made a list of companies in this industry (which has always been fueled by innovations), Marathon Oil would be among the last on that list given how innovative they are. There are also less innovative companies, I'm sure, but I don't... — read more
It’s great to see the hiring is picking back up!
Let’s keep It going. K has to be exposed.
I’ve had several of you ask if Marathon hires contractors. I’ve only worked with one hired on perm during the years I’ve been here. I’ve seen several contractors stay contract for years on end until they’re let go or they give up and go elsewhere... — read more
I pray an activist investor gets on the board pees all over Lee's shoes and boots him out the door. No matter what your faith consider including this request into your prayers going forward. God bless you everyone.
A lot of employees have the skills to make it in other industries but many believe MRO is the be-all-and-end-all company. Why, I have no idea. I left the middle of last year and am in a position that utilizes my skills to its fullest. I am well... — read more
I heard that there is a blacklist out there, to prevent prior employees from getting jobs in Oil & Gas company’s, so I need to know if such a list exist and how to get access to it?
Where are all these people going? If there are jobs being handed out that pay comparably to this place then I want in on that action. There has got to be something, because too many people are leaving while there is an economic downturn happening... — read more
