Tomorrow is exactly one year since I left. I don't know if there are those who regretted leaving and who would like to return to MRO, but I would like to return only for a day to see if anything has changed (for the better) in the meantime...
Anyone else noticing the attrition? I know Bakken and Eagle Ford have lost a few good people. ORB/Permian seems to be losing someone every week. I saw a few presentations from ORB, seemed like they were automating a lot of things, heard some of the... — read more
In Lee’s recently released statement he says “ Our first responsibility during this ongoing crisis has been to the health and safety of our employees, contractors and communities.” - no it was not and no it hasn’t been staff was forced back into the... — read more
My opinion is that people don’t like when something is mandated to them and I’m afraid there will be plenty of those who will definitely decide to leave MRO if the company decides to mandate the vaccination. There may not be many of them, but there... — read more
This is a place where nobody trusts nobody - employees don't trust the leadership and leadership doesn't trust the employees. I do believe, however, that I trust them less than they trust me. How can a company be successful if leaders are not... — read more
Or am I missing something? I’m trying to spot some positive changes here, but unfortunately, I don’t see them.
without getting targeted by HR? Makes no sense to require this. If this is truly a dangerous situation then we ought to be allowed to WFH (high risk populations or not).
Does anyone have anything positive to say about working at Marathon? Everyone I talk to is either looking for a new position, hoping to be let go and get a severance or waiting for bonuses to be paid out in March and then start looking.
My workload is doubled and there is more and more work to be done every day. I’m not complaining because I love my job, but it’s getting more stressful. The load is too big. At the same time, some have almost nothing to do and getting a paycheck has... — read more
MRO should follow suit with Delta Airlines. Delta's plan allows the employee the freedom to choose to get vaccinated or not. We all want the right to choose. If you don't get vaccinated, your monthly medical payment increases by $200. This is a... — read more
Wondering if you think we will have a vaccine mandate or what protocols will be in place for the new Houston office if case counts are still high
Unfortunately, although some believe the pandemic has significantly accelerated the downfall, I think that even if it had not happened the situation here would not be any better. The only thing that happened, which someone has already noticed, is... — read more
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?
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
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
