The bathroom amenities moved from the old HQ in SF have a strange significance. The engraving is a mystery. Those things are in JW's private bathroom.

Topics regarding layoffs at Chevron Corp.
For anyone who was recently laid off: I signed all of my paperwork via DocuSign on June 3ish. It mentions a 7 day hold and then it will be paid in the following pay cycle. I still have not gotten it. How long did it take for everyone else?
Moving along, most of the shelf have been sold. Look for outlying operations to shut down, including empire terminal.
I'm struggling to follow all the details on retiree medical. Those of you who have retired, give me a clue. Let's say, hypothetically, I am 50 years old. My point situation today gives me 72 points which Chevron somehow works out to a 62% company... read more
You heard it here first.
CVX market cap is approximately $199 B. COP market cap is approximately $55 B. A non-cash merger between CVX & COP would be valued at approximately $254 B w/ current pre-merger CVX shareholders owning approximately 78 percent of the merged entity... read more
Chevron could learn something from google. Our entire upstream is full of NOTHING but engineers. http://on.inc.com/2ryRWZv
Just heard that the Pennsylvania assets are going to be sold. Does anyone know who is buying them? I
Why doesn't Chevron see a future in renewables? In 2014 they sold Chevron Energy Solutions to OpTerra, and they also recently divested the geothermal operations. Other large players are getting into offshore wind, why not Chevron? What comes after... read more
Do expats still get all those extravagant tax free alloances in this tough business environment for oil? It makes a lot of sense to cut back on those.
Everyone currently working for Chevron wants to continue working here. Why? Answer: Why not. The pay and benefits are great, practically exceptional. The job is not overly difficult. The majority of workers don't have to work weekends and holidays... read more
When will CVX go bankrupt with these low oil prices and no signs of oil prices increasing? In 1 to 2 years?
Curious on Wheatstone updates, how is startup going?
GE is in real trouble to fund pension obligations after prioritizing stock performance first (and using cash for buybacks instead of the pension). Tens of thousands of GE workers could join millions from other companies and potentially lose their... read more
I heard that some Gorgon expansion work might have started, because they still need to backfill the foundation trains, is that true? I thought Chevron told Wall Street that major capital spending was done, or is this work not significant capital... read more
I'm a petrotech who knows my job has been hanging by a string for the last two years and the future is very, very uncertain. Still, as required, I update my Career Development Plan every year stating I want to grow my skills and do marvelous jobs... read more
To all you US SME's my personal experience of respectfully trying to engage you in our decision making process is so very very fraught, It is so difficult to genuinely connect when we come from very different business environments- often you seem to... read more
I see the HES Skype tantrum party thread got removed, thanks mods. If folks on this board choose to call others out by name they should also include their name.
They don't have anything to work on. Just bleeding the company of money. Still dozens of people in it? Why?
Will there be expat opportunities for younger employees desiring career development through international experience?
Here's a link to the Australian Tax Office's latest case against Chevron on it's dodgy interest claims. Great news for the Australian tax payer. Note that She'll and Exxon have been more prudent in their loan structures and what they have claimed in... read more
Well, I just checked the Chevron website to see what is happening with employment openings. All of these stupid news reports about the big upswing in oil industry hiring does not feel quite right. Probably 95% or more are for field workers, not... read more
Any word in the DWEP-GOM merger?
Would someone be able to help me answer this.
Saw this on a different board - it's a good one... I'm always reminded of this guest lecturer I had in college. He was a buddhist monk that was giving a talk about external forces and influence. He made the point that everything outside ourselves is... read more
No one who has lost their job is deluding themselves into thinking that they are content and happy. It is more that they have accepted the reality of their situation and are adjusting their lifestyles accordingly. Well, at least most people. Sure... read more
Chevron has developed a Mba mindset that engineers are commodities. The brain pool that has been released is unbelievable. 35 year employees with masters from MIT, West Point graduates, engineers with multiple patents. Chevrons new mentality is to... read more
Why was the annual general meeting held in Midland this year rather than California? Is it to do with the resolutions that were voted? (Climate change, lobbying, business in conflict prone regions, independent chairman). Or performance issues, voting... read more
It seems to be true. Clicking on an advertisement on this Chevron Corporation Layoff board traces your real IP address. If you are using a VPN client app to circumvent detection of your IP address, making the mistake of clicking an ad will trace your... read more
With the US oil giant Chevron ignoring the government’s request, Petrobangla, the state-owned oil and gas corporation, has written a letter to the Board of Investment (BOI) and Joint Stock Companies and Firms (JSCF) to block all its activities for... read more
Some Jackass is starting new threads just to complain about others starting new threads to expand on old threads! Go figure ;-).
Don't reply to the clown who is copying replies within threads and creating new topics. Childish.
He has no concept of the value of technical expertise in complex projects like Gorgon & Wheatstone, so he casually reduces technical staff to "save money." I wonder how many technical experts you could employ for how many centuries with the money... read more
The chickens are coming home to roost. But Watson will retire before the shinola hits the fan, and he'll blame it on something that was out of his control. What a joke Chevron has become.
Why not have a 9 hour work day M-F and have a 4 hour day every Friday? That way, everyone will come to work every day of the week and still have free time on Friday to take care of personal business. Ultimately, it is up to the managers and... read more
I fail to see the significance of so-called "age discrimination". I am convinced that the so-called "age-discrimination" phenomenon is simply another excuse for incompetents to seek some type of retribution, and for them, it is strictly monetary and... read more
I requested from my PDR (Ops Manager) interest in requesting the early retirement package. I have worked in GOMBU for 25 years. I was denied having access to the EOI because according to my PDR my job was critical to the success of our project. Many... read more
