Topics regarding layoffs at BP PLC
Bernard’s email today indicated a smaller and nimbler BP. I wonder when all this will happen. The last round of layoffs seemed to drag on for a long time.
Does anyone really believe we’ll return to work on June first? I know that if my manager tells me to go to the office I will say hell no! I have heard nightmare stories about what has been happening at offshore in GoM.
When Mr. Looney had his call with employees earlier this week, it sounded like he announced layoffs are to come in June. Did I understand him properly? I wonder how much more information will be announced after earnings on April 28.
Hmmm ... I wonder if the freeze on promotions, raises and stock awards applies to the Group leadership changes that were announced last month???
Are you having any furloughs due to the virus? What's being affected (if any).
Is anyone else sick and tired of seeing Bernard Looney’s face plastered all over LinkedIn??? I do not want to be inundated with his “personal brand” while I’m looking for a better job somewhere else.
BP is below $20/share, lowest since 1994. Dividend cut is certain, along with big layoffs. Join the club with all the other oil companies. The whole situation stinks.

There are a lot of ex BP X's around. I was devastated by a BP layoff in my 8th year (1992), and that was over 25 years ago and things haven't changed. While I managed to have a pretty successful 28 year career in the oil & gas industry (with another... — read more

I may be a little off topic with this article, giving that it has nothing to do with layoffs, but it definitely paints a picture of how things are done at BP. It raises the question if BP’s CEO is overpaid, in relation to the company results and the... — read more
Worked at BP for 16 years. 1 year before turning 50 I was laid off. HR must keep track of who is about to be eligible to start accumulating retirement benefits. I am pi$$ed at myself for sticking around and passing on other offers because I was naive... — read more
