Is it just my department or did Marathon Oil in general decide that merit and experience mean nothing and that knowing to kiss the right a-s means everything? The wrong people are constantly getting promoted and it's starting to affect our... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Marathon Oil Corp.
I hope I’m right and that it’s true that the layoffs have slowed down considerably lately. For a while, I was constantly getting news that they had laid off someone I knew. I haven't heard from anyone in a long time now. Fortunately, because I was... — read more
I think if we made a list of companies in this industry (which has always been fueled by innovations), Marathon Oil would be among the last on that list given how innovative they are. There are also less innovative companies, I'm sure, but I don't... — read more
It’s great to see the hiring is picking back up!
Let’s keep It going. K has to be exposed.
I’ve had several of you ask if Marathon hires contractors. I’ve only worked with one hired on perm during the years I’ve been here. I’ve seen several contractors stay contract for years on end until they’re let go or they give up and go elsewhere... — read more
I pray an activist investor gets on the board pees all over Lee's shoes and boots him out the door. No matter what your faith consider including this request into your prayers going forward. God bless you everyone.
A lot of employees have the skills to make it in other industries but many believe MRO is the be-all-and-end-all company. Why, I have no idea. I left the middle of last year and am in a position that utilizes my skills to its fullest. I am well... — read more
I heard that there is a blacklist out there, to prevent prior employees from getting jobs in Oil & Gas company’s, so I need to know if such a list exist and how to get access to it?
Where are all these people going? If there are jobs being handed out that pay comparably to this place then I want in on that action. There has got to be something, because too many people are leaving while there is an economic downturn happening... — read more
New board member, B.S from NBL who was president and coo, was with NBL for a short time before the chevron / NBL “merger.” As soon as BS joined NBL, there were layoffs after layoffs, believe he referred to it as right sizing the ship. Look at his... — read more
Did laid off employees get company paid healthcare for the remainder of the year?
It is a sad day to fully realize/see that it appears that all the haters and trolls have had a legitimate point all along. That being, MOC excom is and has been completely inept and out of touch, as well as entirely focused on appearances instead of... — read more
First, best of luck to all of those laid off today and those back last year. Second, can we talk about LTIP? The rich keep getting richer. Not going to offer stock to those below level 14! So the ones making the most money are now the only ones... — read more
Engineer here. Got the boot today. Been working in the field since the slowdown. Also wondering how they decided on who to let go. With oil and stock prices on the rise there must be something more sinister on the way for marathon and those still... — read more
I’m still trying to figure out how layoffs were determined this time... Last time we (managers) were asked who we could do without—and decisions were made “above us” on who to cut. I had no such conversation this time so I’m curious. — read more
Any total numbers? Department wise count wise?
We’re sitting at $50+ oil with a skeleton crew already and still making mass layoffs?? I can’t decide if the end is in sight for everyone soon or if the remaining employees will actually have safety.
Lee got punished by the board for performance. Now the rest of the company suffers for his inability to run an oil company. Best luck to everyone today.
Earnings report is expected to be released on 2/17 and I am afraid that new layoffs will come with it. Given that the results are expected to be poor, this would not be too surprising. Any thoughts?
Anybody heard anything on bonus payouts? I know there's an HR meeting next week to discuss results but thing are pretty tight lipped. What should we be expecting?
What’s new in land? You guys have been silent for a while. Happy now? Scared now?
Let’s all go back to office when new strains are popping everywhere. Yippee. Negligence at it’s finest! Lee and the board take a 25% pay cut and now everyone is being punished! A vaccine is right around the corner. I wonder how many people will... — read more
I’m hearing rumblings off another round of layoffs this week...
What happened there? I take it he did drink the Kool-Aid?
Will this help or hurt our Permian position? Seems like a great start for redevelopment of premier Permian position. Where is penny stock when you need him?
BS sold EP Energy in 2012 to private equity ($7Bn) and Noble Energy in 2020 to a super major ($13Bn).
Why was Todd fired today?
For being a relatively small department Land accounts for a lot of vitriol on this site. Let’s discuss.
So many people are worried about any upcoming layoffs. I could never understand that. Take your future into your own hands. Save, save, save. Put all that energy you use stressing over potential layoffs and get prepared. You can’t control if you’re... — read more
What are the odds she doesn’t return from break? We can all have our dreams right?
When layoffs happen, everyone says “it’s business, not person” and “the decision was made above me (managers)”. However, I find that after being laid off and reaching out to my colleagues who’re still employed by the company, it’s met with dead... — read more
Guys, here's the deal. Posts here can be useful after layoffs have happened to assess the damage when org charts aren't being provided. But beforehand, nothing on this forum is reliable. IF layoffs happen, which I tend to think they will, worrying... — read more
The longer you've been here the higher the chance of you being given your walking papers. Instead of trying its best to keep people who have the experience and knowhow - not to mention priceless knowledge - MRO is looking for ways to get rid of us... — read more
Oil’s back at $50/bbl; were all safe now—unless your manager doesn’t like you for some reason.
Russian SVR hacks into Marathon files/data. They leave after finding no signs of life.
Here’s the honest truth and it’s going to hurt. EF might have another 3-5 years before the decline curves are so steep we can’t hype it any longer. ORB has been finished for a long time. We have tried to unload many times and no buyer is willing to... — read more
Soon or sooner?
Given the huge layoff in April 2020, does anyone else find it super odd that MRO has a ton of postings for Houston jobs right now?
