With ratings and staffing decisions happening by early October, we’ve got a few weeks left to WOW the TMT reps and management. Start polishing those apples and practicing that pucker! These next 60 days will determine whether or not you have a job in ‘22!

@awdm, can we expect the “high performing,” but grossly overpaid execs to have their performance ratings dinged?
Lets get real. In this economy, the only thing that matters is the bottom line. If you are a high performer but highly paid, expect your ranking to drop to come in line with the justification for letting you go. Less highly rated people who are paid less will see their ranking jump. It is just a numbers game. It is not personal. But it is all about the bottom line
You reading this? You all know what the problem is! You know you could fix it. It’ll be your fault when all the top people flee this circus act of a company.
Get used to it! Exon lays off bottom 10% every year And has been doing so for very long time. Have you ever met anyone that left Exon voluntarily? Probably not. Ranking is part of corporate America. Learn, do your job well, don’t let yourself get pushed into job or department that is being eliminated, phased out, downsized or sold, if possible. Don’t ruffle feathers or cross someone that will become your future supervisor. If you take off Mondays sick, openly disagree with team mates and superiors, fail to play by the rules the end result should be expected.

Actually, COP will continue to buy itself, year after year. This perpetual action demonstrates what executive management really thinks of the company they supposedly run.
COP is a gong show, I work at CVX, and one company I never considered was COP. Not surprising you are facing chaos. No exploration now means you have to buy reserves and assets that come with their own workforce - so letting people go makes it economic. Buy, lay off and produce - some business model. eventually, no one to buy. Re----k capitalists
The ranking system is totally bogus. I know many highly ranked employees who were let go for no reason over the last 6 years. The only common thread is the didn’t kiss azz to managers and “leaders.”
The executive don’t understand why this is so demeaning. Suggesting the system provides information is insulting enough. The real kick in the jewels is the idea that the leaders in place have a clue regarding value-added contribution.
Oh goodie. Thanks for the reminder. Can’t wait. If I’m over 50 will I suddenly “need improvement?” Think I’ll increase my workday from 12 hours to 14 hours in hopes someone will notice and pick me to stay next time we play musical chairs.
