We know what the layoff was for each company (70% of EMIT, 50% of GP etc). But who got cut within the companies? Does it appear to have been targeted by CL? By function? By ranking?
Topics regarding layoffs at ExxonMobil Corp.
I'll start.... "We can't make all these promises [about climate change/alternatives] by 2050 when none of us will be around" face palm
Good things come to those who wait
Love that the forum was for all employees to hear a discussion and "update on future plans" during a time of maximum uncertainty but yet we were given a sweepstakes entry to get to attend and the event was not even live-streamed. Amazing leadership!... — read more
For those of you who passed the PIP like me are you figuring out your exit strategy or sticking around? It feels quite strange as in there’s nothing much to celebrate with the upcoming layoffs and nobody’s job is really safe especially those of us... — read more
It will show you what threads had recent updates. It sorts posts that way. It takes you from default sort (last main post entered) to 'active sort' where threads are sorted based on which thread had recent... — read more
Someone here’s gotta be attending the live sesh. Spill the beans! We all want to know - Are we Still fundamentally strong or not?!
I hate all the silly stuff going on right now similar to everyone else, but I’ll admit if I do get laid off one thing I’ll forever miss is the “power” behind saying I work for ExxonMobil. The brand holds certain weight, people know it’s relatively... — read more
I call b—s—!
So many people are waiting for the things to pick up once again and while I believe we will see at least a few more cycles, the time of O&G is nearing its end. It's only a matter of time before a slump becomes our permanent state. And something tells... — read more
What about the employees who determined they were nonessential? Will they be let go or does Exxon think we need nonessential employees when we are going bankrupt? Didn’t those employees admit they are nonessential? How would exxon defend a lawsuit... — read more
Given the serious financial crisis the company is going through and very significant additional costs for each ex pat assignee, what are your thoughts about all those unnecessary ex pats. Have you ever seen greedy employees or greedy behavior by... — read more
Sorry Yanks, 20% headcount reduction in U.S. by December. This was from a very reliable source. Will be a combination of retirement and layoff. Some sites will see higher reduction than others, 20% of U.S. workforce. You are lucky as we were much... — read more
Most of this board representation seems office with some field folk. But the issue of layoffs is pervasive throughout O&G functions. Even the 'Upstream' commenters (few) seem office. Below is interesting article on the state of the American... — read more
See the subject - currently HR is conducting empathy training for the coming layoffs with HW3 and TMTS for managers. It's about as useful as it sounds.
Is EMRE is moving to Houston and we can sell the space in Jersey for good money. RTD and EMRE to be combined into one large EMRE organization ..
This is a honest question.
Good managers exist. Real leaders not so much. Leadership is not cultivated in our system.
Maybe we can get back on top like this? Then we'll have layoffs and they'll be first again...Rinse and repeat... /sarcasm
With all the layoffs and constantly deteriorating work environment - and not to mention the disappearance of some benefits and laughable if any raises - who exactly will want to join this company once the work picks up and we are hiring again? Or let... — read more
My guess is X = 0 Looking forward the the forum! Glad to know that he is still around!
Upvote/downvote recommendations. I'd personaly like to have a user ID so I can keep track of my posts...
Will Pod Boy take unscripted questions from the audience?
"I call the head of Exxon. I'll use a company. 'How, how are you doing, how's energy coming? When are doing the exploration? Oh, you need a couple of permits, huh?' But I call the head of Exxon, I say, 'you know, I'd love you to send me $25m for the... — read more
I've worked at other companies as a Co-op student, but not as long as I've worked at EM so it's hard to draw comparisons. It's only been a few years but the things that bother me the most are the unfair ranking system, horrible managers, and... — read more
Does anyone have any idea when the "studies" are going to come out regarding layoffs in the US? When would non-voluntary layoffs first happen? Before EOY? PIP time next year (April-June)? Also, tangentially related, why should I be working my a– off... — read more
I have nothing against evolving and adapting to the situation, but I honestly envy a bit everyone who has transferable work skills and finds it easy to keep a job with minimal retraining. I just read an article which says that staying in O&G is... — read more
How likely is a salary cut on top of layoffs? Is there any precedent for this at EM?
I noticed several posts in the past exposing how bad and toxic UIS/RTD and Corporate Strategy Research in NJ are. The reason I am making a note here that it is unfair if the posts mentioning fake worthless employees, culture and management of... — read more
I'm sure Darren spent the majority of his weekend with his prep team for his upcoming forum and will spend the next couple days rehearsing in front of his bathroom mirror. The majority of us will only get to see the video of it which could possibly... — read more
For those who are so sure that anyone at or near retirement is filthy rich and should walk away to leave room for young pups, you obviously have no idea what awaits you when you turn 50 or 60. We live in a sandwich generation, where those who enter... — read more
I'm yet to meet one and all the people I know - and I know quite a few - never do anything else but complain about their supervisors. So I'm wondering, is this really a company-wide thing or are there people who are happy with their managers? Who... — read more
I have been with XOM for 10 years. In my time here, Skills Development Assessment has always been used for employee development. But now I am hearing rumors that this year’s skills development assessment will be used to determine layoffs. Any... — read more
Or is it for EM only?
I am a US field-based employee, and I've been in my current position for almost 3 years. I was expecting to move to a new role (and location) by the end of 2020 but that's obviously not happening. So far my manager has not given me an estimate on... — read more
If I leave in January do I get paid for all 20 days of my unused vacation? Or is vacation accrued proportionally to number if weeks worked in a year?
I moved from a plant to Spring a few months ago, now worried because I’m hearing rumors of 75% layoffs. Already some of the older people are gone, but hearing that is not enough. I’m worried that exxon will get rid of us less experienced people. ... — read more
