I’ve read a lot of criticism in these threads for those who chose to remain. Calling us lazy, blaming us for the decline of the company, stating that we all deserve what’s coming. Most or all of us realize the direction OXY is headed and the... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Occidental Petroleum Corp.
Why ? The Company stock price stinks
Any thoughts about whether recent quakes in Texas are due to more oil field activity.
Does anyone know if Oxy bought the big sign at Minute Maid Park this year? It wasn’t apparent from news videos of recent baseball games. In previous years it stuck out because it was so large compared to signs sponsored by oil companies that were... — read more
Check out this news. https://ihsmarkit.com/research-analysis/occidental-taps-houstonbased-startup-to-bioengineer-solutions-.html What a theory behind this? If it is true, the invention should win a Nobel laureate. Why it comes to OXY? This... — read more
What’s happening with New Mexico? everyone divesting tonn of assets? Is it due to regulatory environment and new no emissions rule?
Do the right thing oxy, allow flexibility or some kind of hybrid model. Most of us are more productive and less drained from not having to commute two hours a day. At least let us work from home a day or two a week.
To those who think working from home eliminates being micromanaged, guess again. Try googling project management with remote workers. There is a whole industry cranking up to micromanage your time and tasks in a remote setting. Maybe you are... — read more
More “buy high, SELL LOW” and the stock market hates it - Oxy down way more than peer group today. Nice work Vicki on “executing the plan”.
Have people that are getting raises already been notified? Guess I didn't get one LOL
Why my genuine posts about the best president are getting deleted ? Fakers are all hat and no cattle.
The company starts making money on these Oxy VSP’s after a little over one year. Good for PR too because you can claim continuing “synergies” from the merger. There are likely people who would take it now who didn’t take it 2 years ago. — read more
With the new corp tax going to 28% from 21% that is a 7% increase. Oxy had 17.14 billion in revenue in 2020 and 7% of that would be 1.20 billion in new taxes, if based on revenue. Is that right, or do the cost get deducted first and you pay the taxes... — read more
What have you heard or know about the reorg?
I don’t know if I should panic more when I have too much work or when I have too much free time. How busy is your schedule? Whomever of my colleagues I talk to they say that they have more work to do than ever. My case is that I’ve never had less... — read more
Share holders, do your job and vote her out! vote her out vote her out vote her out vote her out vote her out vote her out vote her out vote her out vote her out
We got a heart felt message from Vicki regarding the unfortunate and awful murders in Atlanta. But not a mention about the tragic murders in Boulder. Why not?
The Oxy.com does not have job postings anymore. Are they buried in the website somewhere?
Has anyone heard when contractors would get their salaries back?
I absolutely agree with someone who said that Oxy is one of the most if not the most badly run oil majors bar none. I worked in another oil major where the situation was similar in terms of management, but here it is certainly worse. However, I do... — read more
Did anyone get a raise this year?
As Ichan dumps OXY stock and the slide back to the teens continues
https://www.rigzone.com/news/bp_work_model_to_affect_roughly_25000_employees-14-mar-2021-164865-article/ I hope OXY follows suit. Otherwise everyone at OXY is going to try and leave and go to more flexible companies like BP. To my generation... — read more
Can someone explain the cash portion of LTI please?
Throwing this out there and asking fellow Oxys for advice. With the share price back at a reasonable level, and considering that we’re barred from trading Oxy derivatives, I’d like to ask around if you have any interesting hedging strategies. .. — read more
Someone here recently declared BK by Thanksgiving. Stock is now over $30. I guess the OP meant next Thanksgiving??
Working from home suits me perfectly, although I know it won’t be able to last forever. Even though the work/ life balance is a little more disturbed now, it suits me much better. I have noticed that I am much more productive. I do things with ease... — read more
What are your thoughts on WFH?
What do you think about giving away our tax dollars to people who don’t need it. The big question is if someone makes 69,000 dollars per year and has 500,000 in the bank should they get any stimulus. What if they are retired, make 60,000 dollars... — read more
Any thoughts on how this new layer of middle managers may help improve the bottom line? Another idea from JB on siloing folks under incompetent yes-mam power-seeking young bosses. Reorg is not done yet but damage is.
Wonderful news for Reservoir Engineers and Geos. You got three months to complete the work used to take 6! More power point makeup and spreadsheet filling that doesn’t make sense. Pre approval meetings and more meetings to please the Reserve team... — read more
So now that our king has declared COVID-19 essentially wiped out Oxy work from home people should go back to work. No masks required. No social distancing required either. This governor is such an id–t and didn’t learn his lesson from last year... — read more
I heard this from a friend that in the meeting tomorrow they are going to declare special bonus for all people. Is this true? It can’t be we just got some declared last week, but ya never know.
Vicki to be interviewed on CNBC Thursday along with John Kerry on clean energy. Hopefully Q&A is prescreened so she doesn’t say anything stupid. In any event, they will blow a lot of CO2 hot air that should be sequestered! 💨
