Thread regarding Marathon Oil Corp. layoffs

Corporate’s right!?!?

Why is it that the decisions the corporate leadership teams have made haven’t has a larger impact on turnover?

They have layoffs and double/triple your workload and responsibilities.

They reduce your total compensation (if your not a grade 14) by taking away LTIP?

They create an office with no privacy where everybody can be in each other’s business?

Little upward mobility. Won’t promote folks because they’ll have to backfill position (honest reason given to a colleague).

I’m sure this list can go on and on, but why do employees stay? Is it the atmosphere? The commute? The comfort? Not wanting to interview, look for another job? What gives?

Marathon continues to make it more unbearable for its employees with no recourse. When does that change and they start taking care of their employees instead of only promoting return of capital to investors?

For some… the only job they’ve ever known is Marathon so they have no other experience and only know the “Marathon Way” so they’re unmarketable anywhere else because they bring only one way to the table instead of having a plethora of knowledge from multiple companies. I would advise people to NEVER stay at a company more than 7 years. When you do that your skill set shrinks and you become unable to think with an open mind because you only know one way. Long story short… they are most likely unhireable and have no other choice but to stay.

Why stay? All about the yammer - self promote-do nothing-get paid.
