I was laid off at the end of October in 2017. The VCIP was a part of the package however I have not seen it yet. Has anyone else received their prorated VCIP?

"In 2017, extensions and discoveries were primarily due to higher prices at Surmont" WTF? That's not an extension or discovery https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1163165/000119312518049729/d534096d10k.htm
What was the Canada/Corp Payout
Could never find anything as COP, so why not let the real independents find the oil and gas for them. Bloated with idiot management, many hapless facebookers, and senior brown nosers. Let's cheer them on with our "SPIRIT."
Do folks feel rejuvenated and excited after VCIP and “no ECO action” announcement or will we see a mass exodus after pay day? While the extra money is great and keeping colleagues employed is nice.... I can’t help but feel disappointed that the ELT... read more
How are you losers going to spin this into bad news?
I was let go in 2017 during the last round of reductions. Part of what I was told during the exit interview was that I'd still qualify for some VCIP when it was announced this year. Now, I just got some mail on Saturday from my wonderful COP HR... read more

Waited to see if Ryan would touch on the next ECO. But nothing like that in his speech, and we have a lot to do with Alaska and other growth opportunities. So I feel like the axe is put away until he next big dip in oil. Feels nice to be generating a... read more

What 10 things could we do, or could the leadership do, to make this place great again?
Don't let the salary adjustment or the VCIP announcement or the price oil distract you from the looming layoffs.
Why is this forum a magnet for old and bitter souls who just can't let go from COP? Continuing to post the same old pointless complaints, but wanting to know how the company is continuing to operate. Some of you even pretend to still work at COP and... read more
Any thoughts on what VCIP will be when announced in FEB. Salary increases after that ?
So far, the only employees I've worked with that received the email about the cost of living raise were salary employees. Are hourly employees not receiving this increase?
That brings us to a total of 6% for the last four years! Wake the hell up management! People are walking out the door droves. Going to other companys in the same position, for a 15% salary bump.
Does anyone know if COP will rehire folks who were part of the 2015 - 2016 layoffs? How do you know if you are eligible ?
Well, this is my first week back after several weeks vacation. I thought I'd be re-energized and invigorated. I was. Until I entered the complex. This first week back was so bad. Everyone I talk to thinks this place is horrific. Management is... read more
Is it all hunky Dorey now that oil is above 60? What’s happening with Surmont? Still the issues with blowouts of steam? How about GCS? All that cash spent on one building and no one to fill it? Wow! Rumour and lies are fun to read and fill my... read more
I wonder what is going on with ELT? No communication whatsoever on ECHO project? I think we will start hearing after earning call. A note saying timeline will be very considerate to ease off the stress.
I guess oil looking over $60 is enough to distract from the looming reorganization coming at COP?
Happy New Year! It looks like oil price is up to stay and we are working on another boom! May we rise to the occasion and have enough sense to plan for the bust that is sure to follow.
I used to work on a rig up there and heard from a buddy there was another blowout up there this past week. Anyone have news and how big it was?
I don't hold the ELT accountable for product prices. They should be held accountable for poor decisions: Over-spending when the company split and planning only for good times. Believing the lies of Exploration and the biases of country and project... read more
Heard this from a credible source in EC3. Any thoughts? Dang I am worried now.
Just wondering? Looking back at the old posts here, when oil prices were tanking we all were supposed to blame our management for the company losing money and letting people go. Now prices are rising and we are profitable again. Does this mean our... read more
I had been laid off 30 months ago and ever since answering all the job advertisements that seems a fit. I have a stay-at-home wife, 2 kids in colleges, a house mortgage yet to pay off, and the monthly $900 health insurance premium. I have 30-year... read more

We’ll COP things have not gotten any better for Cenovus. Announcement today they are laying off 15% of their staff. Again I ask why did they take so many COP staff. Bad deal for Cenovus.
Maybe just the holidays, but I noticed employee postings slowed down on this board. The Eco layoff is still coming next March and L48 is still consolidating into one BU before the exodus from the comfortable HQ complex. Don't drop your guard...
How many "Harveys" exist at COP?
