I have been reading between CXO and COPs pages in here. It's concerning that COP staff seem to have such disdain for their own company, especially the SPIRIT values. Is the Power Point thing from the same person or is PP really a big deal over there? Why? How? And should those of us chosen to stay expect the same unwelcome treatment from COP staff that we showed RSP?
Concho pride has taken a beating these last few years. You could say it dropped as fast as our stock. Fun events always getting canceled. A halt to HSA employer contributions. 401k match dropping 4%. Bonus cuts. Raises were bad last year and nonexistent this year. But at least they gave us stock that is worth nothing now!
We lost some good people to questionable firings and forced retirement. This year we promoted inexperienced and uneducated people who wouldn't've had a icebergs chance in Ecuador 2 years ago. Good people were passed up on promotions and its clear now this round went to people that were glad to accept a position without the pay. From what I gather this was the case in most departments. Clearly it was a hint for qualified people to start updating the resume.
Still there remains a small spark of Concho pride from those of us who have been with Concho for a long time. It was sincerely a great place to work. Top notch. Some people are optimistic that Tim will fight to keep us. He might. But even if he does a lot of us will still lose our jobs. It would be nice to know something, anything at this point. They've had enough time to plan it out.
