Topics regarding layoffs at Marathon Oil Corp.
Has anyone heard about more layoffs coming? A bunch of people are set to leave the Oklahoma office on July 31st. Just curious if any other assets will be experiencing reductions in staff or if there will be another round in Oklahoma?
Layoffs no longer necessary? Good people are jumping ship - no apparent internal strategy for success. Living the quarter to quarter life is getting old quick.
Lee got over 12 million annual compensation according to today’s Houston Chronicle. Since 2013 his management has helped result in a 50% drop in the stock price. MRO continues to lag the competition. If he was being ranked, where would he land?... — read more
So, is it against the rules to compare the land department to occupied Europe? Or is it against the rules to compare management to hitler? Can the mods please clarify?
Stock dropping faster. Why?

I have always heard MRO was a stepping stone to something better. Is it?
Can’t believe there was only one woman out of eight placed as a Director over the new Asset changes! #pinkpetro
Has anyone heard of something to be implemented really soon?
Once they finish laying off Creative...GSC is next. Tiny footprint in new building for both departments. Probably bringing in a UK agency to handle everything.
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
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?
HR Talent Acquisition is actively recruiting mid-level leadership candidates from other companies as we speak. Two completely separate friends of mine have called me to discuss their talks with HR. In both cases HR is talking a much higher base... — read more
Who’s ready for the HERWorld Energy Conference!?
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
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
Please post if you work at MRO and are actually happy? I bet we get very few happy people.
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
What’s up with the sale of the U.K. asset? I have not been paying attention but am curious.
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...
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
How much did you get?
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. — read more
What happened to our land posts? I guess someone tattled to the mods. Thanks HR!
I've been hearing we might be looking at more layoffs either this or following month. Any truth to this?
Anybody heard anything?
Any news on the Austin Chalk well we were going to do?
What do you retirees think of Marathon doing away with supplemental benefits for Medicare starting in 2021?
Confirmed that the SA office will shut down. What about OKC?
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2018/11/18/smarter-living/the-benefits-of-sharing-your-salary.amp.html The New York Times is running this article that explains the benefits of sharing salaries. I’m game! Anyone else? Grade 12 non... — read more
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.
Nothing to be impressed with, considering where oil prices were last quarter.
Great job management for creating a great working environment for us. Excellent work MRO employees, for a great year of hard work as we focused on our objective to be the lowest cost, highest margin resource play operator. — read more
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
