Marathon Oil Corp. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Marathon Oil Corp.

It’s Shrinkage!

When I think of the Tillman era at Marathon, one word comes to mind - shrinkage. The Tillman years have been a long period of shrinking budgets, shrinking asset diversity, shrinking career opportunities, a shrinking sense of purpose and shrinking... read more

Any info on layoffs?

It has been quiet when it comes to layoffs chatter - is that a good thing or quiet before the storm? Do we know if anything is brewing?

Why are managers leaving?

I know of two who packed their stuff and left Marathon Oil in the last several weeks. Makes you wonder...what is it they know that we don't? Because why would any manager leave this place when they have it made? We do all the work, they take all the... read more

Censorship

We’ve already had two threads shut down this morning. Neither mentioned any demeaning info and neither discussed any identifiable person other than Todd Abbott, who is an officer. Why does the Layoff tow the corporate line? We crave uncensored info... read more

The Middle Ground

Sure there’s a solid opportunity out there to show the world (Wall Street) that we are commited to maintaining strong fiscal discipline in a higher commodity price environment. I would go so far as to say that it is probably the best approach to be... read more

Sale of U.K.???

What’s up with the sale of the U.K. asset? I have not been paying attention but am curious.

Work Computers

I hope everyone realizes that if they are posting or even visiting this site from their work computer (property of company) that IT/management can monitor not only where you go but your every keystroke. Just saying...

Fable of the Bees

Bonus, "Merit Raise" and LTIP season makes me reflect on what we all get out of our jobs here at Marathon. All bees are born the same, but only some bees become queens. What makes the difference? Royal jelly. Royal jelly is a substance that those... read more

Deleted post

Why do all these new post keep getting deleted? There was one about all the executives vanity plates yesterday that’s now gone. Also the amazing land post that disappeared. This site is becoming censored.

Big Change Coming Soon to ORB....

Rumor mill is ORB/OKC Office to be transitioned to Corp Office by early 2019. Announcement to OKC approximately Nov 27th. Some positions possibly retained during the transition and options for relocation are in talks. Good luck OK.

Reorg

Rumor is existing (smaller footprint) to reflect leaner MRO. Another rumor is that a few departments will be totally outsourced to third parties and not be joining the westward exodus . Maybe these are the ones that have already been hollowed out?... read more

Missing Concept of Teamwork

What gives is that Marathon is at best dysfunctional...If you rock the boat...or if you are "different" then you are a target. There is no respect for intelligence or experience. The priority is who you are related to, your age, who's [email protected]@ you've... read more

Another slap in the face

The land department is going downhill fast. First a land director with no land experience. Now they promote a supervisor to a manager who everyone dislikes. He has had two people within the last year quit due to him and at least one more before that... read more

Is Eagle Ford really the next big play?

I gotta admit, this article really got me puzzled. Do the Eagle Ford operations really have that much potential, and if they do how come nobody else realized it, or is this just a story to justify big investments in those operations, back in 2016... read more

Cost Cutting

What’s up with cutting everything for the remaining year? Are layoffs coming too? I thought we had a good balance sheet and now we are canceling lunches and selling marathon gear in the lobby????

MPC. Much better than MRO

All you defenders of the status quo, please explain why MRO has a market cap under 50% of its former sister MPC, perhaps poor strategic leadership, especially when the firms were equal when split. Before you say ‘it’s the business we’re in,’ why has... read more
