I stopped stressing and learned to enjoy my job when I realized that going above and beyond would bring me the exact same rewards as I would get for just doing what's required, no more no less. Same pay, same miserable bonuses, same chances at... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at ExxonMobil Corp.
How many of those laid off have found new jobs by now? I'm sure plenty of you still talk to your former coworkers, do you mind sharing what's going on with them? I'm hoping to hear some good news on this subject since there's plenty of us who'll be... — read more
Was told last month I’m moving positions and the new role is literally nothing that I asked for. My boss said it’ll be a good stepping stone for me. b—s—, they are just trying to fill in roles of people that got put on leave. The whole life... — read more
I have worked with many great colleagues in EMIT Canada over the years. From what I’ve seen, a bunch of them have been let go as part of their program, while several really terrible people in both management and non-management positions somehow... — read more
as a new and young engineer you are taught to be nice to the operators. You see white collar people being overly nice to the point of kissing butt with then at times to keep peace. But the operators are never taught the same culture of being kind to... — read more
or is it done?
Employers like Exxon are ideally looking for an employee with the wisdom of a 50 year old, the experience of a 40 year old, the drive of a 30 year old, and the pay scale of a 20 year old. Isn't it sad that this might have started like a joke but... — read more
I was looking up some info on Glassdoor and I ran into this: "An ExxonMobil career is one designed to last. Our employees grow personally and professionally, with benefits built to support every stage of life." I still haven't stopped laughing... — read more
I have seen that Facilities group at Delaware was kind of dismantle on May, 2020. Some good employees were layoff or Piped. Did the company know its project to dismantle the group and fusion the two divisions (Permian and Delaware) as one like it... — read more
I am a part of the involuntary lay-off. Did any of you get the release/waiver agreement reviewed by a lawyer? I asked around and lawyers charge about $400 for the review. Not sure if it’s worth it.
I get the fact that you dont want an age gap in your talent, but you’d think that in a hundred year pandemic the company might say ‘hmmm, maybe we can hold off on hiring for A YEAR!’. Before anyone screams, I also get that college grads are... — read more
Well it looks like HR is not equipped to handle all of the questions from the people being separated. I have been on hold for over 2 hours now waiting for someone to answer a question.
I've worked at three major oil and gas companies that have all been through layoffs countless re-orgs and each had a general sense of uncertainty towards the future as the markets fluctuated. XOM was by far the worst at managing those factors. I have... — read more
It seems lately like Exxon is a blind company that has no direction. The management only cares about one thing: themselves. For as long as their wallets keep getting filled, who gives a damn about the rest. Even if the company keeps failing. Why is... — read more
Can experienced ExxonMobil persons post here the approx value of pension say after 20-25 years? Trying to decide whether I ought to continue my suffering and anxiety for the pension or quit now. I do not like to work for ExxonMobil anymore. I know... — read more
I got PIPed after 24 years with ExxonMobil, used to have top 10%, always top 33% ratings during my 30s and 40s. Then after 50s, I began to give new ideas and disagree technically with my bosses, I was trying to be more innovative and more leading... — read more
LPS is the TPS reports 8 supervisors over a role sounds familiar. https://youtu.be/5rWP_PGfiow
Before you decide to leave Exxon for supposedly greener pastures make sure to properly vet the company you're planning on joining. A friend left a few months ago just to find himself in an even worse situation because he was so eager to leave. Don't... — read more
I suspect that when XOM posts some solid earnings for 2-4 quarters in 2021, they will bring the 7% match back. They won't bring it back before they're done laying off, for obvious reasons. It will come back as a morale boost to surviving employees... — read more
Starting to see an exodus from Clinton. Lots of people abandoning the sinking ship. Are other sites seeing this?
and your idea does not involve use of any company resource. Would you rather quit XOM and start your own company with the idea, or would you commercialize the idea with XOM? Are people rewarded for commercialization within XOM?
XOM was well paid for 35 years and now 30 years off to go on luxury holidays with a GREAT pension. Why all the negative comments?
When the XOM Houston layoffs were announced, a certain Upstream president boldly bragged about the benefits being better than those of the competitors. Is that true? Usually what comes out of their mouths is half truths at best.
How many people will Exxon have to hire to replace those who were let go once the time comes? Considering that so many of the best employees were laid off, it won't be that easy to find replacements on their level. My guess is they'll have to hire... — read more
Lab technician... chances of being able to transfer to another XOM plant if I apply through the channels like the official website? If not then I will likely start applying for other lab tech positions. I understand the whole industry is hurting but... — read more
I don’t understand and am a bit too paranoid, but if I go for the PIP am I also signing away my right to Sue like on PIL?
Stupidly let a 20-year 401K lay easy and took my 7% match in kind. But it was anything but kind. At one point, XOM was 70% of this nest-egg. At 50, will be about 45%. All in one year. Price of a house. Cashing out if some more s—ers punch... — read more
In 2018, I was offered a role at Exxonmobil UK in Leatherhead as a graduate in the LNG team. I didn't take the offer as I had a massive fall out with a friend who got rejected after the internship at XOM and for some reason hated me because I was... — read more
ExxonMobil's CEO and chairman received a fat stock bonus rewarding himself for positioning the company where it is today. By all measures of meritocracy, his performance was lousy. Meanwhile, hard workers who did their best every day to make a... — read more
Someone has written a script to Up! and down vote comments. You can no longer trust what you see for the up and down votes.
When can I expect to receive my 2020 bonus? My supervisor still hasn't brought it up and we're already almost halfway through January
Hypocrisy is endlessly complaining about a company you call inept and corrupt, yet complaining because they can’t give you a job for life. Name one oil company that did not have layoffs last year. You can’t. Name one company that doesn’t enforce... — read more
This analysis was written in 2016 and while it contains bias, many of the comments are truthful. Most of us are loyal to a fault, but is this company showing signs of the next Enron? Greed & fear drove that company's demise. Is XOMs fate the same?... — read more
