Layoffs slowed down?

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 

Almost no innovation

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 

Dear Contractors,

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 say a prayer every day

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.

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?


Marathon Oil Corporation is the latest leading company to purchase certified soil carbon storage from Soil Value Exchange. Marathon Oil’s support for soil as a nature-based climate change solution establishes it as a leader in the #energy... —  read more 

Personal, no?

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
