Topics regarding layoffs at ConocoPhillips


This company puts in so much effort and time with UW. We always tout the $$s donated, but don't mention the overhead that goes into the annual program. I wouldn't be surprised if we spent 1/2 of what was brought in through donations via free lunch on... —  read more 

CEO for a Day

If you could be CEO of COP for a day, what changes would you make? Me, I would get rid of end of the year ratings. In my experience does more harm than good. I would allow the Mark awards value to be increased and those could substitute where... —  read more 

Coasting at work

How easy is it for you to coast at work and not get any real work done? I find that I feel guilt for doing this, but then I wonder how many other people are doing the same thing? Now we have a pinball machine to distract, making this an even easier... —  read more 

Should I work here?

I am a current Exxon employee that is being recruited for a role at COP. I figured a good way to judge a company is to see what the angriest people are saying anonymously. Honestly, your complaints sound just like what is on the Exxon Layoff page... —  read more 

No external job postings

With all of the comments that have been posted on this site and a lot of people writing about the high number of people leaving, I was surprised to see there there are zero posting externally. Is COP preparing for the recession, or is something else... —  read more

Five-fold profit leap Unfortunately, I don't have any hopes that we will somehow benefit much from the fact that Conoco reported a five-fold increase in profit from a year ago... —  read more

Airbnb just announced one of the most flexible work policies in the world. Work from any office or your home. Live anywhere in the country and get paid the same no matter where you live. You can even live abroad for 90 days at a time in a country-... —  read more 


My posts keep getting sensors on this site despite there being nothing in the T&Cs against what I am writing other than it goes against the liberal agenda. Real close to quitting site for good.

Annual Merit Increase

Curious how people are feeling about the annual merit increase this year that averaged 3.5% company wide, while inflation rages at 7.9% y-o-y at the last reading? Essentially, the average employee got a 5% decrease in purchasing power for 2022. Will... —  read more 

SPR Release

This is the silliest strategy for lowering pump prices I have ever heard of. When the last release occured, the price went down for all of a few days. And today, oil went down from $110 to $102, that won't even filter down to a change of gasoline... —  read more 

JJ was right about RL

At the time of the split, JJ said RL was more of a good old boy than a leader capable of growing and leading the company’s upstream plans. JJ thought RL incapable of identifying true leaders, was more likely to choose those he personally liked, and... —  read more 

Talent and skills

Talent and skills used to be very important. Now it’s like those things are at the bottom of the list of priorities they look at when hiring new employees? I have a feeling that everything is more important than actual skills and talent.
