COC is confusing. I’ve heard 1yr and 3yrs. Which is it?

Continue to dangle VSP or any other integration information for that matter by overpromising and underdelivering and here’s why: You now have everyone who qualifies and has decided to take VSP doing the bare minimum with an expectation of being... — read more
So much talk on VSP. I can understand it’s better to get the money then to not get the money, but people talk about it as it some kind of game changer in their lives. Maybe focusing our attention on getting out, finding another job, and moving on... — read more
Please Oxy just let me go already!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The longer you wait the more toxic the workplace becomes.
I know it’ll be sometime this week.
A few more days to go and we'll know how the Legacy Anadarko VSP will be structured. According to the HR meetings, it will be CoC. However, they didn't know about the 70 day rule and some other details. Another unknown is how they will handle the... — read more
All of the recent meetings have sent mixed signals about what they intend to to with WES. Could RAW be helping the group with a portion of his parachute money in hopes of another large payday after a WES sale?
Without the scientific help of the prestigious AAET tools and methods, a simple minded person with thick glasses may see that the traffic in APC's layoff board is couple of times heavier (including the responses gets higher) than the occidental... — read more
Has anyone known anyone who actually got the CoC? Seems like it's a farce and your going to get denied anyway
APC at least knew how to do a takeover. They came in and bumped everyone's pay 10% and said get to work and we did. Nobody was disgruntled and we took care of business. This OXY stuff just has everyone dusting off the Rolodex and calling old flings... — read more
As far as I can see, many people are posting on this board at this moment, but there is very little or no word about actual layoffs that could happen in the next week or two? Does anyone have any concrete info regarding the numbers, potential... — read more
but after seeing all the messages on this board I'm realizing a lot of Anadarko employees are just as greedy and selfish as their EC was. If you're GOM stop complaining that you are guaranteed jobs. If you wanted to leave anyways dont... — read more
I haven’t seen the VSP offer yet. There are rumors that the PTO pay out and 150% bonus multiplier won’t be included, which means it won’t be equivalent to COC. If that’s the case, $50k+ is too much to leave on the table. If that’s the case, then I’ll... — read more
75% of people at OXY offered the VSP, that means 25% said a couple of years salary was not enough to leave. As an APC employee weighing my options, why would you not take it? I would expect different reasons from different people. I’m just trying... — read more
Can anyone expand on this career move for the $98MM man?
We can’t seem to get any straight answers from OXY HR people about the COC. Anadarko HR people are completely worthless. OXY HR people are saying we will get the COC package if laid-off within 12 months. It was our understanding that Anadarko... — read more
Like most of you, I sat in quiet contemplation for months as the bidding war took place, choosing to trust in the logic of our would be suitors. But now that the dust is starting to settle, it’s clear to see that there is no logic, there is no... — read more
Anyone else confused on if APC midstream employees are going to be WES or OXY? Seems like they want to keep us OXY till the change of control is no longer viable. One integration meeting says your paycheck will say WES and the next says it's going to... — read more
Now our over 40 experts watch their coworkers in other assets get their payday, while our under 40 high potentials ready to take the next steps get hamstrung along yet again taking a smaller piece of the pie. Thought the "brain drain" was going to be... — read more
VSP will be offered this week to 40 and over with 5 yrs of service and will look an awfully lot like CoC.
It’s barely Monday and we’re already fed up with wondering whether today will be our last day. It’s draining. If you care about your people or morale at all, you need to get this ball rolling and fast.
While the acquisition passed with overwhelming support (99%) an overwhelming majority (71%) voted against the executive compensation proposal. Regardless, those greedy punks are collectively taking home $300 million for ruining a once great... — read more
Give it some time, they're still scheming up ways to get rid of you, but without your COC.
For its ups and its downs, Anadarko was a good company with lots of good people. Wishing you all the best in the days ahead!
Anyone have a guess what date layoffs will start after the immediate close tomorrow?
It looks like I missed some key points my first time around reading the CoC. From what I understand, if they change benefits or move your office more than 25 miles during the first 12 months, you can request CoC. From 12 - 36 months, you can... — read more
Anyone have any clue how the converted cash portion of our restricted stock will be treated? The email Friday indicated that the converted Oxy restricted stock would follow the same terms and conditions as APCs (which I understand), but what about... — read more
Anybody else wish Oxy would hold off on offering a VSP to APC folks, until after job positions in the new organization are known ? Seems like it would be hard to make a financial decision of this magnitude without knowing what the income alternatives... — read more
