Thread regarding Marathon Petroleum layoffs

Growing nepotism

Is there anything more demoralizing for an employee than to see someone climbing very easily even though he or she has no talents, just because they have strong connections with some of those in higher positions? It's really frustrating. I have been here for a few years and I think nepotism has never been a bigger problem here than it is now. I would very much like to try to go to one of the competing companies just if I knew with certainty that there is at least a little better situation regarding this problem?

DEFINITELY. In my organization, there are fathers and sons, husbands and wives, cousins, etc. Most of these people are in “leadership” positions too. I realized years ago that there is no promotion potential for me. Unless you’re connected or willing to do nefarious and unethical acts, you will be pushed to the side. It’s only a matter of time before something disastrous happens. Profit has come before safety for the last 2+ years…

Yes I would agree it is much more blatant nepotism at MPC. Possible it is getting worse. I am wondering in particular why a certain person rose through the ranks to management at refinery level and was part of the layoffs. If that person was tapped for management and progressively promoted why would they have been layed off under age 50? Weren't they favored??

I’ve been at other companies. Nepotism is far worse at MPC, almost rampant. I think this is the small town effect.
