It’s Monday, and I still have nothing to do.
My supervisor is on vacation. My team is doing busy work. And I’ve been looking at my calendar dreaming of early retirement. Any chance there going to be another package offered in the next 18-24 months?
We all know that safety and people are the first and most important part of SPIRIT values. With the highly infectious and contagious and deadly delta variant being spread like wild fire now, does that mean that ConocoPhillips will send all employees... — read more
The only people who grumble on here are former employees laid off over the past 5 years. Everyone still here is happy, approves of the company’s direction and leadership, and enjoys what they do for a living. Let go of the anger people.
Anyone going? Great chance to find a new job at a company that actually values employees!
Do you guys have any summer interns around? I know AKBU have some...
COP will never lead or transform their culture to attract the best of the best, they are just to closed minded..........I'm retired now and I worked for them 20 plus years. During COVID I was able to produce more and get more work done than ever, and... — read more
Unfortunately employee productivity is being blamed for the financial struggles, i.e., not successfully executing the plan, rather than dealing with that the plan hasn't been that great. Otherwise we'd see more managers laid off too (not just old... — read more
Our stock price is the same as it was 14 years ago in 2007. There’s been peaks and valleys for sure, but where’s this “smart growth and superior returns” we keep hearing about? I’m just not seeing it. The share buybacks began with the first couple... — read more

Some would say that so much more could be accomplished. It's true. I wonder what this company would look like if such people were promoted and could significant layoffs and leaving of the most talented people be prevented in this way? The situation... — read more
So much more could be accomplished if only management was smart enough to promote those who actually perform the work. Too many “friends” are promoted whose only talent is making the round of their mentors and other worthless coworkers. Biggest... — read more
If you're not looking to leave you're making a mistake. It's obvious that this place does not have a bright future. The company will continue to cut and shrink until nothing of real value is left. And once that happens, its days will be numbered... — read more
I thought it was just a phase, but no, I definitely lost all motivation to stay here. Do you hear or experience things that further demoralize you every day? It's become very difficult to continue working here. If I were in the leadership of a... — read more
This was posted on the Concho site before the merger. Concho folks, now that we’ve lived together, how true is this? ———- 10 Things As a ConocoPhillips’s employee I’ll offer you some insight into our new company. And don’t forget (because our... — read more
Stock buyback until all stock holders are bought out then lay off everyone and sell assets.
Is it as hard as I've been told? Some of my coworkers who were laid off months ago are still having trouble landing a new job and they are quickly getting discouraged. I refuse to believe the main reason is their age, considering that it comes with... — read more
You do a search for “TheLayoffs Conocophillips” and the first thing that comes up is an ad for “ConocoPhillips’s Responsible Production” Why do I think someone in the company is paying someone’s search engines ? Feeling the heat? — read more
I find the whole story about the potential sale of Shell’s Permian holdings interesting. Some analysts believe that Conoco is a potential bidder for all or some of the assets. Any thoughts? What do you think about this?
Sounds like it’s coming!!!! Another company to ride this out another few years! What’s the latest and greatest????
I have to think hard to come up with something that's still good about COP. I just wonder how long this situation will last and whether it will start to improve, that is, does the management know what it is doing at all? Unfortunately, I don't know... — read more
I haven’t heard any rumors about big layoffs in a long time, so I hope I can plan a vacation without fear of being informed while on vacation that I’m cut. Nothing would surprise me anymore because I know a man who got notice when he finally took a... — read more
What package is being offered to those being asked to move to Midland?
I am being asked to relocate to Midland as well - anything to watch out ?
I don't even expect to get a raise anymore. Since I could not get it by hard work, then at least I decided to compensate for it by doing bare minimum. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the only way to get a raise, at all. However, more and more I... — 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 or naysayers comments please.
I can’t lie, I used to be fine here. However, it has not been like that for a long time. I am trying to find a new job and the conclusion is this: despite investing in growing my skills independently of this company, it happens that my skillset is... — read more
Any Feedback from Concho folks
How many employees does COP have - 10,300. How many employees does EOG have - 2,800. Now you see why we are having layoffs. I don’t even think that 10,800 is counting all the Concho employees we recently acquired. When will we stop having... — read more
I’m not saying it’s ideal, not even that it’s good here, but it’s personally comfortable here for me and I’d rather stay here for a few more years. I have a lot of things I could complain about, but let’s just say it’s bearable and more comfortable... — read more
Every week I get more and more depressed that I didn’t take the package when it was offered. Weekends are all I look forward to anymore. Here’s hoping there’s another chance soon.
I’m ashamed to say how many job applications I’ve submitted and how many times I’ve gotten to the interview phase. I hope that I will get lucky soon, but the chances are that I will not get a good offer for a long time.
I had never felt so little valued before. I guess I’m becoming more aware that no one cares what employees think. Every day I am more and more aware that my experience and skillset is becoming meaningless here. I stress needlessly over all the... — read more
Merge with pioneer and eog. This would be better, too much debt grabbing oxy. The only reason to grab oxy would be to scare anybody from acquiring cop. Don’t want to go into a low cost bbl holding that kind of debt.
It is not at all clear to me what are the possible reasons why Conoco would merge with Oxy? If this rumor is true, then it's really bad and I hope to get out of here before it happens. Does anyone have any idea how many people could become... — read more
Is this true? I am hearing rumors that COP is merging with OXY and taking on that mountain of debt.
Declaring the dividend is sacrosanct and then cutting it 6 weeks later. Sound familiar? https://www.fool.com/investing/2021/05/19/an-att-dividend-cut-is-coming-buy-this-telecom-ins/
