How long before OXY requires us to be vaccinated against COVID.
Will IT collect your bank info If you connect to your bank account using OXY computer?
With hospitalizations up and ICUs nearing capacity I hope Oxy reconsiders the September 7th return to work. And to all the naysayers consider the following: this is not about COVID. If you are in a car wreck, have a heat attack, stroke anaphylactic... — read more
How many of you realized that Oxy took over your entire lives at some point? And at what point did you realize your quality of life was more important? Did you find it difficult to scale back? I've been trying to reestablish some work/life balance... — read more
Totally chaos and tickets that never close. Nobody seems to really care. The good professionals we used to have were smart enough to take the VSP. No direction and low morale. The few remaining are overworked and demotivated.
Investing.com article on Yahoo. Brilliant. Nothing leads anything lower than Oxy and the people who work there.
Please don't get me wrong, I am always for inclusiveness and diversity. However, it seems to me that the company has become the least inclusive for professionals. As if everyone else is more welcome here.
This is somewhat understandable, however, I have noticed that there are people who brag about sacrificing their personal time for this company because it shows their commitment and makes them look like hard workers. What did that sacrifice bring you?... — read more
Can we go back to WFH now that the CDC has said they were wrong to say unvaccinated people can not wear masks? Also, vaccinated people are still getting sick.
Our team has been so overworked lately that we have completely lost any work/life balance - all we have left is work. I'm having issues dealing with it and I'm in my twenties and single. I can't imagine how my older coworkers with families are... — read more
Who else is ready to sign a letter saying we are not going back in the office? Not sure about you all but we (Rockies) had been told for months any possible office time would be "hoteling" when needed. We deserve WFH if we can do it. Let's get this... — read more
Anyone else leave Oxy and cash everything in at 104 stock price and still laughing at the current employees who can only come up with message board typos, 'ok boomer' statements or how proud they are of Piper Alpha to make them feel better? Lol.
Leadership at Oxy deals with all the side things more than what they really should be dealing with. Just my two cents. Real problems are piling up, and they deal with things that are absolutely not important. That's because they have neither the... — read more
So far, it seems like it has been a huge waste of time for most of us to come back into the office. Most employees that I interact with still prefer to meet over teams rather than in person. Also, considering the 610 north exit from 59 is closed AND... — read more
I absolutely agree with the person who says that duplicate and unnecessary functions should be eliminated as soon as possible. I just wonder how many people would get laid off at Oxy if the company was guided by cutting those who really perform... — read more
What has improved since oil prices jumped? I don't see any significant improvements at Oxy other than less talk about layoffs.
I debated on whether to hold out on early retirement (3 years to go) but with the environment being so toxic and my health not what it used to be I decided to leave and make a go of it with another company. I’m doing part-time work that isn’t as... — read more
I wonder how many people at Oxy intend to quit very soon or by the end of this year? Will there remain anyone who is talented and capable? I hope that none of my colleagues will quit because Oxy doesn't seem to care that these people need to be... — read more
So the oil price is lookin good now and you folks don’t have much to gripe about. What’s the deal? Are you now satisfied cause your makin da money.
Asking employees about how they feel about 1.5 initiative makes me think we don’t really have a clue about building Billion dollar worth of DIrect Air Capture Units. Write a song, a poet or upload an influencing video about it won’t cut it. Woke... — read more
I totally agree with someone who mentioned that many at Oxy not only desire ideal working conditions but think they deserve them. I wouldn’t get much involved in whether they really deserve them or not, nor do I want to say that Oxy doesn’t have a... — read more
Solid contact at Sabinal says they are picking up the Andrews Assets next week.
Interesting how people are so miserable right now even though we should be happy. What would fix morale?
Oxy had a great chance of boosting company morale by implementing WFH permanently first amongst it’s peers. They could have been first to attract top talent and get the Company back on it's feet. They had a decision to make, and a year to plan for... — read more
Is there any new rumor about layoffs but that it wasn’t made up by some entropy lover? So, no one has any info on whether there will be any major cuts soon or not? Judging by the atmosphere only, there is enough tension as if there could be cuts... — read more
This is far from a uniquely Oxy thing. This is the way the entire corporate world functions. Everything is about one thing and one thing alone - profit. If they can find somebody to do the same job for less money, be it here or overseas, every... — read more
Seems like different groups got different messages?
Seems like the news is reporting oil companies are preferring to send money back to stockholders rather than sinking it into drilling new wells. Where is the Oxy dividend to stockholders? The only one getting money from the company is WB. Bonuses... — read more
Hey GV. My computer isn’t working AGAIN. WTF.
As part of a sales package to an unknown operator
When you consider its debt and unstable oil prices, the way this company is managed, the growth of mediocrity in the workforce, the future does not look promising. Has Oxy completely lost direction? How prepared is the company for future challenges?... — read more
OXY had a great opportunity to seize the moment and make work from home a full time option for its staff and use it as a powerful tool for recruitment and talent retention (which we know is struggling right now). It would obviously differentiate OXY... — read more
I know quite a few people who are still at Oxy and O&G in general because they don't think their skills are transferable outside of this field. That couldn't be more wrong. If you think outside of the box, you'll see there are plenty of jobs you can... — read more
Any feedback from today's call? I am glad to see no rush to lay people off. See BHP and others last week. Horrendous. Oxy keeps rolling. I am happy to see where we are going as a company. New initiatives, old initiatives wrapped under new names... — read more
Congratulation on a new record! It took 55 minutes for VH to mention diversity and inclusion and marginalize all of our colleagues. Well done VH.
Many people have pointed out the pathetic and disgraceful company Oxy and its staff are on this message board using facts, track record, direct experience, examples and case studies of the company that has the worst record in Oil and and Gas. The... — read more
