Topics regarding layoffs at ExxonMobil Corp.
The new hire layoffs should be shocking to everybody. Not because it might not be the “right” thing to do for the corporation because it probably is since we hired so many people the last few years, but because it is a change in policies and... — read more
Anyone have knowledge of lawsuits that have been filed or attorneys that are taking cases?
In my experience in the technical fields, colleagues can be classified into two groups: those who help you solve problems when you ask them question, and those who expand problems making them spiral out of control when you ask them questions. I’ve... — read more
"All Roads Lead to Huston" that's what we were told the day before thanksgiving weekend several years ago when the NJRSC project was officially and publicly green-lit. Ever since then the rumor of the Clinton research site begin shipped to Huston in... — read more
Please review and update this survey that shows demographic of who has been impacted: https://www.thelayoff.com/t/15Uol3nC
LPS stewardship is counterproductive and costs EM tens of billions of dollars.
Did anybody who still checks this board quit in the past several months? Or does anybody here know somebody who did? I'd love to know how things turned out for them and if they have any regrets. I've been considering walking out myself. This place... — read more
XOM is such a failing giant that it needs to split up, like what happened to COP and P66. Upstream is dragging down Downstream and Chem.
10% workforce reduction and suspension of savings plan contribution are the first steps. Another 10% Involuntary workforce reduction (called a lay off and with severance) seems likely in early 2021 (using the performance ratings recently assigned... — read more
A safety concern.
If one has cancer, you would remove the tumor by precisely removing malignant cells. If it is not done in time, metastasis occurs and malignant cancer cells spread and start to create new tumors in different remote organs. If a doctor comes and... — read more
Did we really go so far as to post new jobs to cover up the foxes ranking? Interesting I know someone suddenly getting hit with job listings at the same time as our “performance assessments” yet we have a hiring freeze?
I would love to hear how many actually took the PIP and how realistic the goals are.
The culture in this company is very bad. Incompetent supervisors spend all their time brown nosing and working on their next job. Too many layers of middle managers who don’t have a clue on how to run a business. Systemic problem with people... — read more
The HURT is not a physical injury, it's deep emotional feeling that will never be wiped out from EM history (at least to the gen x, millenials, some zoomers). If you come to this board in the last few weeks, you see the unhappiness in the... — read more
Is there geoscientists or geophysicists in PIP? ——- The last 3-5 years the company have promoted high-fliers with very low technical skills to TTL, supervisor positions and managers. Since thn everything went downhill. The company these days... — read more
While some departments have decent technical personnel with incompetent managers, the Process Control Department is totally shocking - they have very young process control application engineers who are inexperienced. On top of this, they have SLS... — read more
Seems the US had the hardest hit, meanwhile in Europe there has been no mention of lay offs, PIPs in HQs (or at least has been kept quiet). Are our European colleagues affected?
I joined Mobil few years before the ExxonMobil merger and had over 10 years experience prior with other major chemical and engineering companies. One insanity that is strikingly and glaringly visible is upper management in ExxonMobil selecting... — read more
Looking at my options of PIP plan or resigning. Just wanted to ask if anyone knows what happen if I took the plan and during the plan it starts not to work out that it’s immediate termination? Or I can resign? Manager even though is putting me on the... — read more
These research organizations like Upstream Integrated Solutions and Corporate Research have collected a lot of servants from bottom of the ladder researchers to higher level executives that are useless. These entire organizations and its technical... — read more
Just curious what everyone thinks about how this will affect operations and maintenance personnel at US plants. So far it seems that only salary employees have been let go. Could things get to a point where wage employees are also let go?
Remember that you or I could be next..
Events of the recent few weeks have been shocking to ExxonMobil employees and shareholders. The performance driven “non layoff” layoffs, the cutting of the savings match and ill the advised belief that not cutting the dividend will stop the... — read more
Ok, let’s put this whole pandemic thing in perspective. It all came to a head around the middle/end of March. EM heads have decided in a short 3 1/2 months that they need to cut the matching because the company will not withstand if it doesn’t?... — read more
Never figured out the whole dang CL. Always smelt funny like the "Stuff They Don't Want You To Know" sorta scheme.
Curious if the company will be better off by letting go of people making it to top 30% as they have been taking the company in a certain direction which may not have worked well. Is throwing the lower ranked 20% (10% now and 10% later?) in the... — read more
Is there a reason behind deciding to remove company matching (401k matching is very common) vs removing pension contributions in future (pension is less common in other industry). This doesn't seem like a straightforward decision. Maybe someone... — read more
Several young talented employees and top potentials kicked this company off and left on their own terms when the times were good and before the perceived debacle. Did they have a crystal ball of how bad this company could get? Someone stated that... — read more
Insider info that if the 3rd or 4th qtr doesn’t improve significantly, the company is heavily considering stopping pension contributions and eliminating lump-sum payment for those who were eligible. (People 55+ older) If you qualify for it, take... — read more
The managers/supervisors set targets for PIP'ed employees which are unachievable within the 3 months. They just wash their hands off without guidance and supervision as if they are not responsible for the result, as the ultimate objective is to get... — read more
I am a soon-to-be Development Engineer in Exxon's downstream division, any tips?
