Thread regarding ConocoPhillips layoffs

People do not trust our management

I mean how could anyone trust our management?

Is there anyone who trusts them?

They need to backup their talk with action, but they never do so. Sometimes I feel ridiculous listening to the messages of our management, because you have to be very naive and still trust them. My opinion.

Exploration was (is) the worst. This is applicable for many, but the old joke especially applied about one manager (“How do you know when he’s lying? A: When he opens his mouth”).

I’ve also had ELT members and those below them lie to me in easily refuted ways. Repeatedly.

There’s a reason we don’t trust management.

I had an ELT member lie directly to my face. Once that happens, trust is gone.

I’ve had managers lie directly to my face for years. I’ve heard them lie to others for years. They never get called out on it. Zero consequences. Instead, they get promoted, shipped overseas to other BU’s, and keep on keeping on. Lies, affairs, spending company money on their friends to take vacation trips (looking at you AK exploration). All in a days work at crooked COP.

Its hard to allow yourself to think like that given we give at least 35% of our awake hours per week to the company in exchange for a salary. As an employee, we would like to think that our dedication to giving up 35% of our lives in more than just a salary, but maybe you are right. I mean, I know you are right. If someone would offer me a 20% pay bump, I would be out of here in a New York minute. Because mostly the fact that the bond between company and employee broke somewhere pre-1990s.

This unhealthy relationship means that we will do the least amount possible to get differential ratings every few years and just enough to get by,

As a long time employee of 35 years, I can verify that my current level of trust is at its lowest level ever. Management never had my full trust however there were moments of surprising support and community that kept me engaged. The first year that executive management shared the profits with us and actually served us a piece of the pie in the cafeteria is an example. It seemed sincere. Surprisingly, they knew my name and what I was working on. Current management has shown no loyalty and no sense of connection with the employees. We are a commodity and readily replaceable. Beyond trust though, does management have your respect? Are they who you aspire to be? Would you want your children to become them?
