Bartlesville is not what it once was and has outlived it's time. Sorry, nothing personal, just business. Consolidating to Houston makes most sense and biggest savings. Having corporate functions close together also provides additional benefits and less duplication of jobs.
Some of you people are so selfish and only think of yourselves. Some keep saying shut Bartlesville down, seriously? You are talking about people, some with families to raise. Bartlesville is a wonderful town with some really great people. Leave Bartlesville alone!!
We are in the vortex now and going down the drain. Sell assets. Layoff people. Buy back stock. Sell assets. Lay off people. Buy back stock. Sell assets. Layoff people. Buy back stock...
Can not attain escape velocity. Heat shields are failing. Burning up. May be going down for the last time.
Like a sugar cube in water. Slowly dissolving to nothing.
Bville supports everything we do Globally. Technical talent runs deep there and could be replaced but would be painful. There are to many petro techs that don’t really add a whole lot of ROI. We double pay for engineering and then pay a bunch of engineers to engineer that engineering and then non engineering jobs. Really?
No way! The company is run from here we only keep the talking heads in Houston.
