Company communications want us to get all excited about a new logo while common employees have to search the web for information because promises of "transparency" fall short. We are keot in the dark and don't know when that tap on the shoulder may come but just keep working hard.

Beware what bus you get onto tomorrow. Some may go to Minute Maid park. Others straight to the TWC office.
Everyone will get an MDR email address. This doesn't mean you will be staying. Don't get excited.
"If you get a new email address, be happy your are one of the chosen!"
We shouldn't be naive to think that getting MDR email is going to cement our positions with MDR.
If you get a new email address, be happy your are one of the chosen! If not, you will be part of the CB&I history and memories.

You won’t get to pack your stuff, they use the boxes to ship your stuff to your house. Clean out your personal stuff and keep a small bag with you. You can grab it when the tap on your shoulder happens. It took me 5 months to land on my feet after the layoffs. It is a tight job market, good luck to everyone.
Thank You, Thank You! A new corporate logo! Just what the everyday working drones have been long anticipating. If I paste the new logo onto my forehead, will that shield me from the HR Vultures that stalk about looking for bodies to escort out the door?
Instead of complaining about the merger, layoff and/or relocating to Houston, I hope everyone has updated their resume and is actively seeking a more stable job opportunities. You can’t complain about something that you decide to stay in.
Wise up and move on! It’s a lot of good jobs out there. I made the decision to look 8 months ago when the CEO was non-transparent. I left a month ago and I am happier in my new role.
Hopefully you can be next.....
Yep, I couldn't believe the Email we received from Corporate communications so late in the day.
What is the point in going to breakfast at Minute Maid to hear more freaken LIES.
