I'm debating whether to accept an offer with slightly worse pay but better benefits. If only I knew that it won't get any worse here. What to expect, changes for the better or changes for the worse here?

Ah, the race card. A surefire conversation winner.
Run run run! It's a sh---y place to work for unless you're white and a male!
I resigned a couple of years back and still literally have nightmares about somehow being transformed into working there again.
If you're asking for advice on The Layoff then you need a different kind of help. This is a place for the salty to jerk each other off.
It’s crazy how much you guys allow this $&@? Ho-e of a corporation control you mind and confidence. Anyone who has left the company is a LOT better off than if they stayed here. Crazy how MRO actually causes folks to get lost in the lore of success. Should’ve quit when they cut LTIP and gave it to your lazy 14’s and up.
Don’t do it!!!! Find another place to work or stay where you are. I’ve been with the Marathon Oil Co. 15 plus years. If you aren’t at a certain level, you are not valued. No one cares about your experience or history. This place is not what it use to be. STAY AWAY!!!!!!
I’m leaving because our pay isn’t that great and benefits that made up for it continue to be stripped away with nothing to make up for it. At this point I wouldn’t really recommend MRO to anyone looking for a job unless they are looking for a step into upstream O&G or an operator. It’s not really a bad place to work day to day, but corporate decisions make it hard to really like working here.
MRO was better to the people they laid off than the people they kept. I wouldn’t jump at the first offer, but know that here you are a work horse to be ridden hard until you leave or sent to the glue factory.
10+ year employee here. Don’t do it. I’ve been around for 8 layoffs in the last 7 years, and they waited until this last round to cut our LTIP. At this rate, I don’t feel confident at all that they aren’t done cutting benefits. If you can make a higher salary elsewhere, take it, but do your research there too on what they’ve done there to the “top” employees that have made it through the last several downturns.
