I’m just wondering how many plan to leave. I know I am
I left on my own terms, I did not want to give them the satisfaction of getting rid of me on theirs. I am happy now and I have zero regrets. The only time I look back in fondness is when I think about my old coworkers. Other than that, I don't look... — read more
People keep leaving the land department. What is going on over there?
I see GSC gets themselves another Director… Giving someone a director promotion when majority of that department lost stock im sure. What an embarrassment. Things are already rock bottom over there. Going to be funny when they have directors over 2... — read more
I risked covid going to lunch with some new acquaintances working at other oil companies this week. During the course of the conversation my time at MRO popped up. Usually I try to explain how poorly run MRO was during my short time there but for the... — read more
I’m not an employee but am looking and have received one offer already, with another likely in the next few weeks. I do not want to go to work for a “woke” company, ie, one that promotes on any basis other than merit. Through my contacts, I have... — read more
Can I use my Amazon Points to get me a second monitor, just so I can do MY work MY way?
Think MRO will match Devon on awarding their employees? Or should we just expect another Yeti mug?
With all these other companies introducing their hybrid schedules like 3 days in the office or every other week, what are your thoughts? Some have even relaxed dress codes.
Heard about layoff coming before holiday.
What’s the biggest life changing shift you had to give up due to losing the LTIP? College Tuition for your kid? Retirement Fund? General loss of comp from what HR assured you would make up for the lower salary? Don’t worry. The Amazon Points will... — read more
Thankfully they were able to make my life easier and do it for me.
Sounds like we should rename the Amazon Points as TILLMAN TOKENS!
Insider here. It's going down. With all this excess cash and the shortage of inventory, the company is finally making a move. Ignore the generic "we're always looking" talk on the conference calls. This is not a drill. Hopefully, not repeat of the... — read more
Be grateful for everything MRO Provides! My question, how do I get two of the 24" monitors for my One MRO table? Would love to upgrade to a dual monitor setup to have better collaboration.
Tomorrow is exactly one year since I left. I don't know if there are those who regretted leaving and who would like to return to MRO, but I would like to return only for a day to see if anything has changed (for the better) in the meantime...
Anyone else noticing the attrition? I know Bakken and Eagle Ford have lost a few good people. ORB/Permian seems to be losing someone every week. I saw a few presentations from ORB, seemed like they were automating a lot of things, heard some of the... — read more
In Lee’s recently released statement he says “ Our first responsibility during this ongoing crisis has been to the health and safety of our employees, contractors and communities.” - no it was not and no it hasn’t been staff was forced back into the... — read more
My opinion is that people don’t like when something is mandated to them and I’m afraid there will be plenty of those who will definitely decide to leave MRO if the company decides to mandate the vaccination. There may not be many of them, but there... — read more
This is a place where nobody trusts nobody - employees don't trust the leadership and leadership doesn't trust the employees. I do believe, however, that I trust them less than they trust me. How can a company be successful if leaders are not... — read more
Or am I missing something? I’m trying to spot some positive changes here, but unfortunately, I don’t see them.
without getting targeted by HR? Makes no sense to require this. If this is truly a dangerous situation then we ought to be allowed to WFH (high risk populations or not).
Does anyone have anything positive to say about working at Marathon? Everyone I talk to is either looking for a new position, hoping to be let go and get a severance or waiting for bonuses to be paid out in March and then start looking.
My workload is doubled and there is more and more work to be done every day. I’m not complaining because I love my job, but it’s getting more stressful. The load is too big. At the same time, some have almost nothing to do and getting a paycheck has... — read more
MRO should follow suit with Delta Airlines. Delta's plan allows the employee the freedom to choose to get vaccinated or not. We all want the right to choose. If you don't get vaccinated, your monthly medical payment increases by $200. This is a... — read more
Wondering if you think we will have a vaccine mandate or what protocols will be in place for the new Houston office if case counts are still high
Unfortunately, although some believe the pandemic has significantly accelerated the downfall, I think that even if it had not happened the situation here would not be any better. The only thing that happened, which someone has already noticed, is... — read more
I think its is time for Marathon Leadership to look in the mirror (good to great) and ask how do we position this company for the future generation energy needs - Transition from climate changing hydrocarbons to cleaner energy. We need both for... — read more
I haven’t been here that long so I don’t know, has MRO ever been in a worse situation than it is now?
Can anyone explain to me if MRO must have this many managers? I think the vast majority of them are absolutely unnecessary. They are there just to milk the money for nothing. Maybe some things would get better here if they fired managers who do... — read more
Banks and investors have realized that the shale plays are a Ponzi schemes and not giving loans or investments. What happened to all the profits when oil was $60 - $125??? Not to mention GRU invested over $5 billion dollars into NON-PRODUCTIVE... — read more
The only thing that is keeping MRO afloat is EG production. Gru (aka Lee Tillman) has destroyed so much value at MRO, all while taking the highest pay and compensation in the industry for 3+ years. Gru and his pale, stale, male, gang has destroyed... — read more
It seems that former MRO employees that were laid off are blacklisted from future employment. They’re also telling major recruiting firms in Houston that they will not hire previous MRO employees. You have to ask why….and its because of the 401k... — read more
A Drilling Manager Lindsey, that F’’d up an exploration REX well beyond recovery, not only still works at MRO but got promoted to Drilling Manager. She disregarded all advice almost had a well blow out and did not ensure the wellhead was rated for... — read more
Tillman and et al have been running the company like they own it and piggy bank, and not the interest of its share holders.
Please tell me what these guys have done to lead MRO? Permian, Delaware…uneconomical to drill and ORB, Pay Rock acreage…uneconomical to drill. That’s 4-5 billion dollars spent and very little activity, what’s the ROI?
