Thread regarding Marathon Oil Corp. layoffs

Pros and Cons

Someone I know is evaluating an offer and asked me about Marathon. I was let go 4 years ago, but I have a job that pays much more and more technically challenging work, so all great for me. But 4 years later my insights about the company may be old and cold. Then again, this message board is still really active, ha! What about someone looking at Marathon today? What are the best and worst aspects? What should someone do/understand to succeed at Marathon?

The cons far out weigh less he pros. Which is why so many individuals have left or are looking to leave. Benefits are terrible and getting worse, pay is substandard at best, no incentive, no office, no support, not valued if you are below a grade 14, no true leadership in most organizations, unhappy employees, micromanaging, individuals moved into management due to friendships, unprofessional, racism, petty behavior, and the 14 and above do not care about anyone, but themselves. The higher the grade the worse the behavior.
Do not waste your time or well being on this dinosaur. This company is in dire straits where employees are concerned. Turn over is through the roof! Don’t move to this train wreck unless you like to feel under valued and over whelmed.
