5 years in we might as well at this point!
The atmosphere is weird and feels a lot like before major layoffs previously. Is something major coming? Or is it just the incompetence in leadership has finally come to roost, and the strange atmosphere is the company finally disintegrating under... — read more
Seems to me there is no curiosity here. No one wants to listen to new ideas, or alternative paths, or just simply answer simple questions. The vast majority of work is pushing projects in your area or answering questions from above. Are all majors... — read more
For Midland Employees, are there any other companies worth working for in town?
Wondering if anything is going to change in December?
Why the increased security today? There were security folks at each garage entrance standing there watching people enter then a security person between elevator banks in SP1. Is something going on today that I was unaware of?
Anyone catch in the latest DE&I dashboard that women are getting promoted at a 40% higher rate than men? Numbers from 2021 are similar. If that’s not progress, I don’t know what is!
Having not been involved in any intern presentations this year, I am wondering how they went? Was there a solid grasp of understanding and was the project they presented on worthwhile?
Micromanaging employees here is nothing new, but I think it's bigger now than ever. At first it was an annoyance, but now it's a major pain that I don't want to bear anymore so I'll give notice soon. I believe the figure of how many people have... — read more
Just heard that M. Fox will be returning on August 1 as Head of Long Term strategy
Glassdoor reviews show 4.2 /5 which is better than most O&G places. I am a new graduate at a different company so I wanted some perspective
Can someone tell the party planning committee that it is nice for the company to try and have a fun event, but don't do it in June when it is (literally) 100 degrees outside. I wanted to sit out there and enjoy some mingling and live music, but I... — read more
I too am interested in how many interns generally become classified as employees at the end. Someone already asked this in one of the threads below, but it seems that no one really has an estimate?
Welcome interns! You'll have a summer of being impressed, whisped around to different BUs, travelling to and fro constantly, meeting with important people, talking about the future constantly. . . . . then you get hired and put on your rubber boots... — read more
nothing demonstrates esg leadership and measured discipline like going all-in on an oil sands asset!
From what I have seen it looks like employee referral is the most common way to get in, I'm sure its possible to get in by just applying but probably less likely
I'm hearing about new COP employees who were promised incentives that were reneged after they were hired. Not a good look for a company that wants to hire the best of the best. Did this recently happen to you or someone you know of?
With their recent moves and the ongoing rumors about COP being bought up by someone, what do you all think about this likelihood?
Was there any shareholder meeting incidents? I didn't see anything other than a few ballot votes that didn't gain any traction that sounded like they had merit.
Would you know what to do and how to do it without your manager? If your answer is no, you probably stink at your job. Why do we put up with so many parasites on value creation in our company? Makers vs takers.
Anyone who works on the Permian development team, what are the pros and cons of the team?
Does HR still use UA or have they moved to hair follicle testing for random and pre employment testing?
Maybe this is the wrong place for this, but I was extremely optimistic after the investor day. Lots of excitement around LNG and a compelling story about reserves and a long runway of production at a lost cost of supply I did take the time to read... — read more
I can't believe that the leadership still doesn't realize that it will hurt this company in the long run if they don't give the employees proper raises to keep up with inflation. Have you given up hopes that we will be paid adequately?
It is becoming increasingly apparent that the company is bleeding talent. The vast majority of high performers have left for greener pastures, leaving the remaining to pick up the slack. Compensation is lacking far behind competitors even at the... — read more
*The list of layoffs is long and many have been forgotten. Careers and lives have been ruined for many. For others careers and fortunes have been secured. Many involved in the decisions do their best to make fair choices but increasingly, the... — read more
We’re in an era of never ending “adjustment “ and it’s been going on since 2015. Sure there was a bit of a break after the big one in ‘21, but it’s never really over. Keep your office sparse and your options open my friends. I hope everybody has... — read more
Does anyone have any idea when Conoco is planning to have the next "reorganization," also known as mass layoffs? I heard rumors that the company is looking to take advantage of the current environment when everybody is laying off so it's less... — read more
HOUSTON – ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) welcomes the Department of the Interior’s Record of Decision (ROD) on the Willow project, adopting the three core pads detailed in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) preferred Alternative E. ConocoPhillips Alaska... — read more
Just a heads up to everyone. I’ve been told by Concho head managers (I am a hCXO) that ConocoPhillips managers don’t promote. This is the opposite of my experience. Concho managers hold resentment towards any employees trying to further progress and... — read more
Alright everybody let’s start the running. By running I mean do we think the executives will top their highest bonus, stock incentive, etc because of the record year even though the TSR (their job) was quite poor. Unless there is some crazy stock... — read more
I for one am all for utilizing the space on the top floor of parking garage for something. It is dead empty 100% of the time. Would be nice to see some people up there playing sports at lunch time.
Well that was a surprise..
I've heard that COP is increasing the % of RSUs by approximately 2.5%.
Heard a rumor here in Houston that everyone who moved to midland in the past 36 months is going to be permanently employed in Midland. Zero opportunity to come back to Houston. No matter who says what in your chain. Any truth to this. Was asking... — read more
What do you think about the earnings? Market seemed to not be thrilled. . . . .
Curious how many folks out there are using the new game room in SP1. What do you like to use, how often do you use it, and for how long at a time do you use it? was it money well spent by the company?
I just saw this thread about forced ranking at ConocoPhillips it was started in December 2020. Is forced ranking still in place at ConocoPhillips in January 2023? https://www.thelayoff.com/t/18nhRr8H
Did they lower the SGL requirements to join the executive leadership? Saw a couple of additions that don’t make sense. Used to be Sgl 21+
