What is your level of anxiety? The rumors are growing but I am very calm. It became irrelevant to me whether I would be the target or not, because it became unbearable to work here. It’s easier to start from scratch with something new than to stay... — read more
Or at least, could their numbers be reduced? Unfortunately, either this company doesn’t care at all about the number of people losing their jobs or it doesn’t have any acceptable solution to at least reduce the number of layoffs. Basically, the... — read more
I worked many extra hours for nothing because it was important to me to keep this job for a while longer. Work-life balance in my case did not exist for months and I was brought to a complete burnout. Schlumberger makes the most of this fear of... — read more
Allstate made an error in deciding that I fell in the group for federal aid in Cobra payments. I spoke with them and was told I could make monthly payments until the "overpayment" was paid back. Well, they just took out $6700 from my checking account... — read more
Can it get worse at all? This company has hit rock bottom and it’s really hard for me to imagine a worse situation here. Although leadership always surprises in that regard.
It’s well known that the unions are negotiating to keep Work From Home permanent. CWA 1101 was the last holdout and they’re finally on board.
It doesn't count as a layoff, but I would basically call it a very perfidious way of managing layoffs - when they want to get rid of you in this company they start to overwhelm you with work that should be done by several people. I just wonder how... — read more
complete lack of transparency in everything we do. payrise, battery production, people moves, flexible working, manufacturing Yes, that's Schlumberger's way and I no longer intend to work for a company that is so little transparent. I don’t know... — read more
I had a little more expectations from this company and I thought I would fit in faster, but it doesn't seem to be so easy at IBM. I face situations where some information is not shared with me, and it should be. I may be exaggerating, but I have a... — read more
I see that some people here regret that they ever worked for Honeywell. I don't. The only question is how much did you manage to use this company as a good stepping stone? I made the most of every opportunity to learn as much as possible and now I... — read more
I came to this site to see if anyone shared any info on possible layoffs, because it seems to me that the situation is more tense than ever. Does anyone have any insights to share?
Of course, I can only blame myself for coming here in the first place because I didn’t trust the people who said the situation here was so bad. I’ve only been here a few months and I’m looking for a new job. I don’t believe I could've made a bigger... — read more
I'm glad some got a raise. I unfortunately didn't get a raise although I was hoping and trying to get it because I really need it. What I'm wondering is are those who have been given a raise now expected to work even harder? I remember someone... — read more
I have worked in much worse companies but I am not very happy with the situation here either. It can always get better. At the moment, I don’t like how the work is distributed here. Some work too much and some are spared and work the bare minimum... — read more
I had a job interview this morning for a position at another company. The recruiter told me that I am the 23rd from Wells that she interviewed, since last week. She asked me what's the deal with WFC, why the mass exodus. The good thing is that... — read more
If I hadn’t come to PepsiCo, I would have thought this company is great, that everything works just fine. If I hadn’t thought so, I would never have left my job at the old company and come here. Despite the fact that it is very easy to get... — read more
I finally got a new opportunity and I can't wait for this new chapter in my life to start, although it will certainly be unusual for me because I have worked here for a long time. Today I am thinking what would be the best advice for people who are... — read more

Here's mine. Do you agree? EVERY EMPLOYEE MATTERS and we are not children. I've never experienced - in any large corp or smaller company - the degree of elitism within the hierarchy. Please consider the innovation and energy you lose when the focus... — read more
Buried in an HR post was the increasing number of consultants. Does anyone know how many of these guys are imbedded in Chevron? I was on a call where one of them said they have been "with Chevron for 4 years". Why did we just lay off hundreds of... — read more
Either you make customers wear masks, or you drop the employee mask mandate. Can't go both ways. Bring your stupid signs back out, and put the fckg screens back up you id--ts. Reduce the store hours also.
When will they tell employees they have to be vaccinated? I’m assuming this month, with the deadline by end of year or earlier for anyone who travels.
Puzzled. Called my counterpart in WV. Work phone in active. Have his personal number cause we have become friends. Called him and asked if all is Ok. Could it really talk. Said he and his wife are trying to figure out what they will do next as she... — read more
Just looked, 402 openings on the RJ website. I have been looking every Monday since I was laid off. This is the highest its ever been. Anybody wondering why the list seems to stay so high? Maybe Paul can answer.
If this company couldn’t get any worse, they are now officially mandating vaccines for all employees.
It's funny how the ones who are saying ,"Lowe's can't make me get a vaccine", are the same ones who are saying, "Go ahead and wear the mask, it's no big deal."
We had to deal with covid for the last 17 months now we have to deal with this new Variant I'm so tired and now associates get sent home so they can be tested and now the tests are taking 3 to 5 days for the results to come back.
DP's nepotism is rampant in Chevron. Just read this article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/rebeccaponton/2020/02/03/the-changing-face-of-the-oilfield-a-father-passes-the-torch-to-his-petroleum-engineer-daughter/ and this article (which is a reprint... — read more
Any notice it getting busier with travel getting back to normal worldwide?
Do not wear a mask unless they lock the doors to customers!
Do not wear a mask! Especially if customers are allowed to enter without one. I AM DONE!
When I left three years ago I was convinced this place would be gone within a year. To see that it's still up and running is a shock, to put it mildly. All I can say is that I feel sorry for the people who are still there. I can't imagine having to... — read more

Quant here. Many talents in quant left for tech companies which offer much higher pay. And on the other hand, we are still laying people off. This is just interesting.
For those of us who are in the age bracket that we all know is always the target of layoffs, is there even a point in going the extra mile in an attempt to make ourselves indispensable? Should I even bother? I saw people who I thought were essential... — read more
I love my job!! I get paid a ton. All I did this week was fudge every number and fake every test. I put in a lot of BBO’s and loto audits but they are all fake, I complete them in my lab while watching you tube. I have to keep my numbers up to keep... — read more

Well we now have to wear masks again. How stupid. Company shoukd make it simple. Either get the vaccine or yiu can't work. Give those people 10 days. Those who got it shouldn't suffer cause of those who are keeping the virus alive.
At least from what I can remember. I'm hoping this year is no exception.
They made a 29B acquisition of Afterpay. Bigger deal than Fisv-Fdc. FISV is getting kicked in the gonads today. Aye!
