All good now?

So, All you greedy Exxon people, tell me: Did the 9% pay raise (on average) persuade you to stay? No plans for layoffs (haha), only outsourcing everything to the BYC, so enjoy the hot desks while you can find one.

What should Spinco name be?

I was expecting them to announce 3M Healthcare as the new name. But now I’m not so sure. Perhaps the 3M brand is becoming toxic (excuse the pun) with the PFAS and Aereo lawsuits. Maybe they should have a whole new name? Or maybe they will be... —  read more
