Believe it or not, I don’t have a single colleague who isn’t thinking about leaving or hasn’t seriously started looking for alternatives for themselves already. I'm just worried about what everything will look like after the mass exodus, which is... — read more
Can COP legally keep the vax data they forced us to provide since the ruling is now reversed by the supreme court?
Since TLO focuses on negatives oftentimes, let's take a minute to celebrate stock price hitting $84, striking distance to the July 2014 ATH. The market has confirmed that the concho and shell acquisitions were great. I haven't checked lately, but... — read more
COP somehow are still trying to convince me I need a vaccine when a) many of the vaccinated people I know got Covid in past 3 weeks (this they can contract and spread just as an unvaxxed) and b)of everyone, vaxxed and unvaxxed, I don’t know anyone... — read more
The lie started with the email about Stat holidays in 2022. Parade Day was taken away and one of the first reasons given is that GCS is not accessible. That's a flat out lie. We all know the building is accessible during the parade, you just can't... — read more
When are they given?
So a couple years ago the decision to move all software development to low code. Specifically, Mindex (which for some reason saw the product champion taken out of the complex in cuffs) how has that worked out? I honestly want to know if the... — read more
How many are putting in their notice after VCIP
It’s no surprise they sold the asset. Impressive a lot of these guys lasted in the industry being d-mb as a rock.
What will CoP do if you don't self report the shot status by 12/31/21?
I already know a few people who intend to leave right after they get the bonus, that is, they are still here only until they get the bonus. I don't even think it's unethical anymore.

It seems to me that management is completely disconnected from their employees. In fact, I'm starting to wonder if the management here has ever been connected with the employees? I haven't been here for a long time so I don't know, but right now... — read more
I mean how could anyone trust our management? Is there anyone who trusts them? They need to backup their talk with action, but they never do so. Sometimes I feel ridiculous listening to the messages of our management, because you have to be... — read more

I read all the negatives on this website about COP. Why not turn this into a positive page and list things which are great about this company? No negative comments please, let’s work together to only post positive for our breadwinners!
I’m seeing a lot of new jobs in the Permian asset being posted. Any thoughts on job security in the Permian asset with all of this growth?
If I feel that I am stagnating, I will leave job immediately. I certainly won’t stay in one place and waste my time there. Many here say they think their careers have stagnated a lot here. So I'm interested in what's the opportunity cost of... — read more
The posts and discussions on this forum are the perfect reflection of our work atmosphere. Toxic, adversarial, competitive instead of cooperative, bullying towards anybody who thinks differently, and downright unpleasant. If you're wondering why COP... — read more
Just calling out that free speech is being stiffled even on a website designed to be anonymous and complain about your company and say anything. Tell me again how the mandate isn't about removing your freedoms? You are not allowed to have an... — read more
15: one to hold the bulb and fourteen to whine about it.
Recognizing favored affinity group month is now deemed a key accomplishment for the year?
This is a master thread about ConocoPhillips layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
What will raises look like in a 5%+ inflation world? Will company use VCIP to compensate for inflation as VCIP is a 'one-time only' event whereas annual adjustments are compounded through the years. I personally think adjust should be mid-point at... — read more
told you that if you really wanted staff you should have changed the plan and be flexible.i guess you really didnt want or need the staff at all then. good luck with the asset ! i guess your staff in midland just have to work a bit harder for a... — read more
Someone said hard work is noticed here. I wouldn't say it is. In order for hard work to really be noticed, one must make a good effort to make it noticeable. Some think that just hard work is enough and that the COP will notice it. Well, it's not! I... — read more
When I left COP, I was offered a job for 20% more. This just made me realize how underpaid I was. 3 yrs after I left I was offered 15% more than I was making at the competitor to come back to COP. I am still at COP and have received promotions. ... — read more
I notice that everyone here is very much against complaining. I would not call this complaining but bitter criticism. -- If the person who came as a replacement for my former colleague is equally (if not more qualified) than him, why is he paid, not... — read more
I never forget. The industry is cyclical. If oil prices steady, competitors will be looking for staff. I will go for higher pay and in turn, COP can pay higher to replace me. Everyone would just be better off if COP would be better at making sure... — read more
Granted, COP is far from being an enjoyable place to work. But, it is called work for a reason. If you don't like it leave. Nobody will stop you. The fact is, COP may not pay the best but it is very decent pay. Take the pay. Put your 40 hrs in... — read more
How to get promotion here and not be a brown noser?
I am worried we will be getting saddled up with even more work here at Conoco. Am hearing rumors that very few Shell folks willing to join us in Midland.
Oh wait who am I kidding.
I thought the opinions would be pretty much the same, but I was obviously wrong because some colleagues think Permian is a good investment while others think that it is a big failure. It seems that rarely does anyone think something in between?
We're getting to a point where we're expected to do three jobs while getting paid for one. Attrition is getting out of hand and nobody is being brought on to replace the people who are leaving. I think they figured out this is a great way to cut... — read more
On this forum you will find several bitter and tortured souls who were let go from ConocoPhillips years ago and still suffer from separation anxiety. They will post messages about wanting to leave (they were already shown the door), they will post... — read more

Do you think COP will have to sell something in the coming period to be able to pay for company activities?
I wouldn’t say that anything changed for the better after any of the acquisitions that have happened since I’ve been here. In fact, after each one things got worse and now I hope to be cut so that I will no longer have to witness the bad moves of... — read more
