Something I always found interesting/borderline fraudulent at Marathon - tiny / no changes in reserves of oil in ground, ever. You lay off 20% (2015) & 16% (2020) of your employees b/c lower for longer, but no changes needed in the reserve base?... — read more

Any laid off employee get there company issued mobile devices returned (for personal use) after the whole legal hold email that went out on the 4th then was retracted 4d later? What was that all about anyway?
I heard MRO was paying the entire amount of medical insurance for a year for the employees they laid off April 30. Is that really the case???
