Topics regarding layoffs at Occidental Petroleum Corp.
Simple request - if you feel the need to b**ch about your job, go tell your SO. If you have actual layoff news, post it here on thelayoff. Given that the latest 257 posts have had nothing to do with actual layoff news, I'm thinking of starting a... — read more
I think most employees hate working for this company now. I now work an area meant for 4 people due to taking over for employees previously laid off. Did I get a raise that I earned this year? Nope. But am I expected to work overtime to manage my... — read more
Local HR is hinting at benefits changes that are about to roll out. Any rumor on what they are?
Changes in GOM organization weakening safety and controls? Time will tell, but if something bad happens management may have criminal liability.
Happened to look to see who replace OCC President and saw GV and SL are no longer listed. Have there been some overdue EC staff reductions? Does OCC report into the CFO? Also, what is the JB role makes no sense to me.
Has there been any new info?
Out of all the completely mo–nic things that OXY has done in the past 2 years, this has to rank in the top 10. ECN hosting a "Black Panther Viewing Discussion". After this and BAR, I have a good idea of a certain department that could use a good... — read more
I do not know the upper management's original intention when purchasing APC but LOXY doesn't seem to show any interests in integrating systems (including IT) and people with LAPC. Maybe they gave up the desire or motivation completely during... — read more
"Good leaders delegate and empower others liberally, but they pay attention to details, every day." Colin Powell Do you think our leaders at Oxy care about details or even empower others? Think about how small details can cause huge... — read more
I used to hate coming to the office on Halloween because of that. Is there another O&G company’s EC that actually does that??? My previous employer didn’t have all these nonsense. Spending hours to give out candies? Do they even know how much they... — read more
VH opening her big stupid mouth again So now she's opening all the valves to help the ship sink quicker
It defies all logic that VH and her EC still have jobs. I hate to say that the shareholders deserve this, but they kind of do for not replacing VH at the annual shareholder meeting. What in the world is the deal?
My favorite quote: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Every 4-5 months, VH shuffles the same people and expect a different output. This is not the leadership we can believe in!
Great promotion for RJ not so for JB. This is Oxy's chance to get away with multiple VP, Directors and Middle managers layers. streamline the structure! lets go back to lean and mean!
“We take calculated risks” “We hold ourselves accountable for our performance” Huh, last time I checked we are on the verge of bankruptcy thanks to our fearless leader VH taking reckless risks and then not stepping down to hold herself... — read more
One saving grace of greenway remaining closed: Vicki won’t embarrass herself and the company by dressing up in costume and handing out candy for hours at the escalator. What a mo–n!

Really HR?! Is this the best you could come up with? This system has fundamental problems. To begin with, it is very aggressive and unconstructive and up to interpretation. You think I am going to sit down with my employees and tell them they s—... — read more
With XOM and CVX merger talks, are there chances oxy will merge with other similar or bigger companies during 2021?
Based on the analog of CRC, Enterprise Value: 5.91 billion Number of employee: 1250 Oxy: Enterprise Value: 60.5 billion Number of employee: 14400 So the target number employee will be 88% of current staffing, this at least 12% reduction... — read more
I want genuine answers why someone working at Greenway wants/needs to be working in physical building? I mean all this dumpster gang logic of economy, team work, motivation etc is not enough. If you can work from home why change it?
Im from the colombia BU, just wondering how is the past due promotions and leveling situation in the US business units. Here is quite dire, quite a few pople have retired, all higher positions filled by the best employees but with seldom or none at... — read more
Unfortunately for LOXY, we will likely get less than 6 months.
seems like they are treating you well spoiled APC! Oxy is accommodating y’all to be happy and retain you, now turn off Netflix and get back to work and #OutPerformExpectations
With the MLB post season playing the championship series at Minute Maid with fans (mostly in suites)... does Oxy have the gaul to send anyone to the suite? If anyone goes, please let us know if you see any of our Execs milking the last of the... — read more
The only thing that comes to mind is HOSTAGE videos. So funny to watch the consternation in their faces as they obviously read from a script. Hilarious.

Anyone heard this rumor as well?
We’ve all heard the saying “c-ap rolls downhill” and it’s so true when it comes to management decisions. The repercussions of those decisions usually end up being costly mistakes that the workers eventually pay for. We’ve seen it all, no salary... — read more
