America and offices

All GBS employees in Naperville were told they will be let go, obviously the petrochemical business was sold, ultimate leaving very few people left at the Naperville campus that is way oversized to begin with. Rumor is that ineos has no interest in... —  read more 

Earnings tomorrow

I’ll be interested to see the Q2 earnings tomorrow. I think we’re the last super major to release results this quarter. Results for the others have been all over the place. I guess I’m mostly interested to see if trading offset our losses and if we... —  read more

BPX Layoffs

Does anyone know whether this morning's announcement gives a hint of how many from BPX would be laid off? Yes Lawler is going to be chair of BP America, but which units under his BPX are getting cut?

Did Bernard announce layoffs

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.

Bernard in LinkedIn

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 Stock

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.

Lawler Bros

Is anyone going to write an article about how many companies Doug and Dave have brought to financial ruin instead of focusing on their gator hunts? BPX and Chesapeake are going to be the latest casualties resulting from their lack of foresight and... —  read more
