How valuable is experience here?

I have more than 14 years of experience here. Unfortunately, I think that my experience is being valued less and less. It is also humiliating to see how much more valued are those who often don't even know what they are doing. Is the experience... —  read more

Executive Compensation

Executive compensation is published as part of the shareholder material for the annual meeting. Go read through the packet they sent you. In the meantime, enjoy these numbers as you think about how your benefits have been cut and harsh layoffs. Glad... —  read more 

What a Week

It looks like “The Wave” now stands for the wave of petrotechs leaving the company. I heard of 4 in total this week and know of many others looking. It will be interesting to see if MRO steps up and actually makes an effort to retain anyone left.

Pros and Cons

Someone I know is evaluating an offer and asked me about Marathon. I was let go 4 years ago, but I have a job that pays much more and more technically challenging work, so all great for me. But 4 years later my insights about the company may be old... —  read more 

What to expect here?

I'm debating whether to accept an offer with slightly worse pay but better benefits. If only I knew that it won't get any worse here. What to expect, changes for the better or changes for the worse here?

nice to get LTIP

Would have been nice to get LTIP. Most lowers grade employees are not valued and are not given LTIP. Seeing how much the stock has gone up thats a lot of $ that could have gone to the employees. But hey it's ok going to another company that values... —  read more 

Fallout Headcount

Resignations have already started. Will be interested to see who stays and who goes. I'll leave you with these words - "We aren't concerned about recruiting or retention. We just had a round of layoffs. Be happy you have a job" PW - Feb. 2020 —  read more 

Lost LTIP Reality

On March 1, 2021, the stock price for MRO open at $11.51 and closed at $11.20 per share. The current price is roughly double the price from that day. To calculate exactly how much you are missing out on this year, multiply your salary times your... —  read more 

Major Acquisition Pending

Insider here. It's going down. With all this excess cash and the shortage of inventory, the company is finally making a move. Ignore the generic "we're always looking" talk on the conference calls. This is not a drill. Hopefully, not repeat of the... —  read more 

Promotions happening?

I see GSC gets themselves another Director… Giving someone a director promotion when majority of that department lost stock im sure. What an embarrassment. Things are already rock bottom over there. Going to be funny when they have directors over 2... —  read more 

Lost LTIP Opportunity ?

What’s the biggest life changing shift you had to give up due to losing the LTIP? College Tuition for your kid? Retirement Fund? General loss of comp from what HR assured you would make up for the lower salary? Don’t worry. The Amazon Points will... —  read more 

I left after 16 years

I left on my own terms, I did not want to give them the satisfaction of getting rid of me on theirs. I am happy now and I have zero regrets. The only time I look back in fondness is when I think about my old coworkers. Other than that, I don't look... —  read more 

Gone Woke

I’m not an employee but am looking and have received one offer already, with another likely in the next few weeks. I do not want to go to work for a “woke” company, ie, one that promotes on any basis other than merit. Through my contacts, I have... —  read more 

Hybrid schedule

With all these other companies introducing their hybrid schedules like 3 days in the office or every other week, what are your thoughts? Some have even relaxed dress codes.


Anyone else noticing the attrition? I know Bakken and Eagle Ford have lost a few good people. ORB/Permian seems to be losing someone every week. I saw a few presentations from ORB, seemed like they were automating a lot of things, heard some of the... —  read more
