Same thing happened to me also. I was told I did an excellent job in May during a pre-assessment meeting. Then received NSI and no specific negative feedback at all. I believe it has to do with asking question, and coming the least to campus back in May... I really think all these flexibility policies during Covid and generally are a trap. Talk about being deceived... it almost feels like XOM is in the business of deceiving. Thanks Enrique for standing up for what is right!

This is very similar to what happened to me. Once you get crossways with a manager, you're done.

Wow he’s a perfect example of how Unethical they were about this. Good old boys can’t take anyone challenging anything they say. He was not a poor performer he just p-ss-d someone off. What pathetic examples of so called leadership.

Agree
It is the lack of intelligence of new “leaders” who are not smart enough to appreciate creative minds therefore the motto is do what I say and do not question me (you might make me look inferior and if you dare I will make your life hell). We do not have true “leaders”. We have dictators.

@1hwp not sure if you were being sarcastic or genuine. But if you read the article you'll see what I mean. I had to re-read many sentences again to understand it.

Only thing you need to know - we need to WIN in the marketplace. Whiny employees getting in the way or my divine greatness! How was I supposed to know this is a commodity business with cycles and making fixed plans to 2025 was doomed from the beginning? The market will bow to my greatness!

If this is the right article, I'm appalled at the many grammatical and spelling errors later on in the article. It reads as if someone who wasn't fluent in English wrote this.

A serious "trust deficit" exists as mangement is prone to being frugal with the truth. They appear to be well polished politicians speaking with forked tongues and empty heads, dodging questions. Town hall misinformation sessions (as they should be called) are a total and complete waste of time. Let's see what the newly appointed spin doctor does to resuscitate the company's reputation.

Not to be focused on the story of one person - what about those tens of billions of dollars lost in valuations of the Permian.
What’s that about?
How does the ballon loses that much air?
Shouldn’t the SEC be looking into it?

Thank you for the opportunity to discuss this critical topic.

I think that the documented efforts of the industry lobby promoting obfuscation and denial were shortsighted and irresponsible, and our sponsorship of it, shameful. Yet, none of us here participated of those decisions.

Now, it sounds to me as if the claim seems to be that we need to better communicate our message.
But, isn’t part of the problem that we speak out of both sides of our mouth?
We acknowledge the need to reduce our emissions, yet they are set to increase by at least 20% over the next five years.
We need to mitigate methane and flaring, yet a single XTO well in OH spewed over 60 kT (more than the yearly emissions of several countries).
We say carbon sequestration is key, yet we don’t have a single Class VI (sequestration) well despite that the 45Q tax incentive has been in place for over a decade.
We hesitate to commit to emission targets, we are unwilling to establish a timeframe for net neutrality, – heck – we can’t even articulate clear guidance on what to do if we encounter significant accumulations of CO2 in the mega structures of Brazil.

In the end, wouldn’t you agree that this a problem of behaviors and leadership? (not science or technology). Too many made careers under denial, and now, not only they don’t have the same commitment to sustainability as –say– to safety, but seem unable to understand the magnitude of the problem, are ill-prepared for urgency of the crisis, and want us to take comfort on the cop-out of the “dual challenge”? “

Are ExxonMobil PGA folks on here trying to assassinate the character of the one guy brave enough that stand up to ExxonMobil? If he’s as bad as these trolls are claiming, why was he ranked in the top previously?

Not a very compelling article. Is this the one we have been told to wait for for the past 2 weeks?

What does being tardy at times have to do with actual performance and delivering value to the company? I bet no manager cared to tell anybody anything about being “ tardy” and all of us are being told the schedule is “flexible “ ... As in you can work from home sometime and as long as you’re getting the things done it’s all good. Why are people picking up on all sorts of petty things that don’t matter? Why do a lot of other companies say their schedule Is 9-5? Like the more progressive companies who actually focus on results and know that when employees are valued and appreciated and important work needs to happen they will put in 60 h workdays because they care. When employees are valued, appreciated and empowered they will give a whole lot more than when micromanaged. It should be set in the employee manual : at XOM you need to be on skype 10 h a day and some petty manger will track your time instead of making sure they actually provide value to the company themselves. I’ve seen way too many people with the Drudge Report or who knows what else open... is that good if they are in for 9 -10h? Some of the comments here are really not that surprising for such a sh–ty culture.

Why do those PIP’d grasp on previous performance. It’s clear that has no weight in the new system and it’s intentional. Prior performance bias is real.
