Trying to see which companies I should apply to to get away from here and what I found is truly disheartening. Based on this forum, Glassdoor, Indeed, and several other places I found every single O&G company has the same issues we're having. Some to... — read more
Former IT Strategy, now Data Manager - the “Don’t ask what the LT can do for you, ask what you can do for the LT” can best be described as a robot. No human connection, definitely no empathy. I know for sure that executives do get put in the NSI... — read more
What happens when people who are members of already butchered teams are fired? Will we get a replacement or are we stuck with even fewer people? One of our guys was put on a PIP last week which makes me think he's as good as gone. But we need him. I... — read more
I was under the impression(my bad) that I would be safe this time as I got ranked in the 'Excellent' bucket last year. Alas!....NSI its is.(sigh!). But as a breather, I am in advanced stages of the interview process with few tech companies. But... — read more
We've all posted (in cryptic form) some of the corrupt or dufus managers we've come across. What about some of the best managers you've had over the past assignment or two? Any? Any of those who you think could right the ship?
Late last year and early this year, I was actively looking for and interviewing for new jobs, but decided to put things on hold when we learned my wife is pregnant. XOM's insurance is great for prenatal care, and my wife's doctor is incredible. I was... — read more
Thought this might be a good place to discuss the ins and outs of job hunting once you take the PIL. 1) When are people typically announcing on LinkedIn that they’re leaving — the last actual working day, or the final PIL period day? (I understand... — read more
What are the best positions here that non O&G companies recruit from without much of a pay cut?
Who the fu-k owns this site? Does XOM own any shares of this site or sleep with site admins? I am finding a lot of my posts are not published or even getting deleted. What are you scared about? Or site owners and admins, are you protecting and... — read more
Unfortunately and very unexpectedly got NSI’d on Friday. Supervisor seems very indifferent and hasn’t encouraged me at all to take the PIP. Probably going to take the PIL but interested to hear other peoples experience, feedback, advice, etc. — read more
I know there were various lawsuits filed last year for wrongful termination from the first round of layoffs they didn’t call layoffs. Has anyone heard anything about the status of those? I only have a limited amount of time to go to the EEOC and... — read more
Can we get some good news without people crapping all over it? Yes, I know things suck at EM right now. I know there are very few positive things and that's not likely to change. But precisely because of that, can we enjoy when we do get some good... — read more
I’m in a field office so I don’t see the resignations firsthand, only on LinkedIn. How bad is it really back at the main offices and manufacturing sites?
Considering there was a pay freeze in 2021, and EM reporting higher profits now, will we be getting a pay adjustments to account for the pay freeze next year?
I still don't know if I'm NSI. I thought there were deadlines for this, so maybe my petty supervisor saved his best for last. He's closing on a new house, so we'll give him a break. But I am out of here in any case, within a few weeks. All but... — read more
First of all these LDS supervisors and managers couldn’t stop the high attrition and most of the best people left the organization and now again they couldn’t represent the team well in the rankings and gave better ratings to their favorites instead... — read more
For all the haters and complainers, here's your sinking ship. $4.69 B Q2. We will gladly enjoy this comeback without you. Hate on.
How did you find your next job/career? Does the outplacement support program really work? How robust is it? Or Was your new opportunity a product of networking?
Do you have to wait until the three month is over to start a new job? Does your salary stop if you start a new job?
How likely is another round of US layoffs at the end of 2021? (non-PIP/PIL)
Chem Tech folks, remember back in 2019 the idle threats passed around by management about fully reading the code of conduct? That they would punish anyone who didn’t before signing that they acknowledged it? This still irks me almost two years... — read more
Anyone else cooperating with the law firms investigating fraud in the Permian and shady business elsewhere? I’ve gotten several calls and they seem to be on the scent.
I work at ExxonMobil currently and it is 100% a joke. What was once my dream job, is the worst/stupidest environment ever. No one wears masks at all and the stupid Skype message from the campus today said “make personal risk decisions regarding... — read more
My floor have 2 people that I know with COVID. No one said anything and ii just head from another person. My boss after a week still have not said anything to me. How embarrassing!!! Is this the new process in place???
Is anyone who passed the PIP last year still with the company? Was the assessment results better this year? Wondering if it is even worth trying. The future seems bleak.
Anyone received NCAS (savings) amount after leaving ExxonMobil?
The PIPs are-a-flyin this week in the permian!!! Nice to see some who got the pip. Well deserved. Some, i cant believe they got pipped. Some, i can’t believe they didn’t. What a screwed up company.
I got NI and I’m under 5 years. I have no intention on taking the PIP. I just found out. Should I take PIL today or should I wait until my 7 days are over?
Just saying, it keeps paying back...
in the inside we all know XOM is going nowhere and shrinking its value every day... but outside the hysteria about new oil discoveries makes me cry. Wall street is such a scammer!!
I was under the impression that I'd be walked out after giving in my notice. It didn't happen since they expect me to train several people before I leave. This messed up my plans but luckily my new employer understood when I had to push my start date... — read more
I left XOM in January. What does the Houston campus look and feel like these days? Less crowded? Low morale? Anything else?
