Why is this forum a magnet for old and bitter souls who just can't let go from COP? Continuing to post the same old pointless complaints, but wanting to know how the company is continuing to operate. Some of you even pretend to still work at COP and... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at ConocoPhillips
Any thoughts on what VCIP will be when announced in FEB. Salary increases after that ?
So far, the only employees I've worked with that received the email about the cost of living raise were salary employees. Are hourly employees not receiving this increase?
That brings us to a total of 6% for the last four years! Wake the hell up management! People are walking out the door droves. Going to other companys in the same position, for a 15% salary bump.
Does anyone know if COP will rehire folks who were part of the 2015 - 2016 layoffs? How do you know if you are eligible ?
Well, this is my first week back after several weeks vacation. I thought I'd be re-energized and invigorated. I was. Until I entered the complex. This first week back was so bad. Everyone I talk to thinks this place is horrific. Management is... read more
Is it all hunky Dorey now that oil is above 60? What’s happening with Surmont? Still the issues with blowouts of steam? How about GCS? All that cash spent on one building and no one to fill it? Wow! Rumour and lies are fun to read and fill my... read more
I wonder what is going on with ELT? No communication whatsoever on ECHO project? I think we will start hearing after earning call. A note saying timeline will be very considerate to ease off the stress.
I guess oil looking over $60 is enough to distract from the looming reorganization coming at COP?
Happy New Year! It looks like oil price is up to stay and we are working on another boom! May we rise to the occasion and have enough sense to plan for the bust that is sure to follow.
I used to work on a rig up there and heard from a buddy there was another blowout up there this past week. Anyone have news and how big it was?
I don't hold the ELT accountable for product prices. They should be held accountable for poor decisions: Over-spending when the company split and planning only for good times. Believing the lies of Exploration and the biases of country and project... read more
Heard this from a credible source in EC3. Any thoughts? Dang I am worried now.
Just wondering? Looking back at the old posts here, when oil prices were tanking we all were supposed to blame our management for the company losing money and letting people go. Now prices are rising and we are profitable again. Does this mean our... read more
I had been laid off 30 months ago and ever since answering all the job advertisements that seems a fit. I have a stay-at-home wife, 2 kids in colleges, a house mortgage yet to pay off, and the monthly $900 health insurance premium. I have 30-year... read more
In case you're wondering what the minimum compensation is for these Top 100, here it is: Minimum base annual salary $850,000 VCIP base at least 150% of this Guaranteed stock options Employment contract: if either side decides to terminate, three... read more
We’ll COP things have not gotten any better for Cenovus. Announcement today they are laying off 15% of their staff. Again I ask why did they take so many COP staff. Bad deal for Cenovus.
Maybe just the holidays, but I noticed employee postings slowed down on this board. The Eco layoff is still coming next March and L48 is still consolidating into one BU before the exodus from the comfortable HQ complex. Don't drop your guard...
How many "Harveys" exist at COP?
just curious...looks totally professionally shot/produced. and the inspiring soundtrack is definitely licensed. i'll say this, it's much less painful to look than the poor engineering dweebs that have been droning on & on & on & on & on & on & on... read more
Come in people, where is all the news on mismanagement, corporate sqrewups and dirt on layoffs?
line-level supervision forced to re-spew korporate propaganda... it's not what we do, it's how we do it, drones! moronic management watching Skype lights, as if they portrayed reality. dipsht, that's such a flawed measure of reality...and you... read more
One of my favorite online folklore stories reminds me a lot of this board... / So sad, yet so funny.
I have outside offer as felicity engineer and don’t want to leave before we are told about Echo project. Is it worth waiting? What are pros and cons? I am sure many people have weighed their options so help your brother out here, please. I have a... read more
COP has worked with the State of Oklahoma and the Canadian government and will announce a Q4 sale of Canadian oil and pipe it all to Bartlesville. ECO in 2018 will result in COP providing early retirement to all of the posters of layoff.com, since it... read more
Same Old Same Old at this week's Analysts Meeting, which has kept the BU's busy for 3 months as we stop everything to provide our master-baiters in Houston data and answer questions. It's been two months since RL sent out his last update on ECO. Did... read more
Is it possible that COP will consider spinning off its L48 operations into a separate company like BP? A lot of bigger companies are thinking about such an option.
So now the IC building in bville is up for sale. The POB will be restacked to accommodate what is left. Have source close to upper mgt and yes this is the beginning of the end to Bville. Hope is P66 will buy the IC building. Won't be long and... read more
Another quarter another contribution of d--k-sh*t by L48, the fools have staked the future of the company on
Read it online thought a good share for our (sadly) current times. Number 1 - Good people leave (not good people stay) Number 2 - Business re brands or updates its vision statement Number 3 - Shareholder value is more important than customer value... read more
Just wondering if the management/supervisors that attended the World Series with vendors will be reporting these gifts. I guess I would consider tickets worth thousands of dollars in private boxes at the stadium to be excessive. Especially since HAL... read more
Pretty slow here. I guess no news is good news in this climate. Has anyone pulled their supervisors head out of their nether regions long enough to hear the latest rumors?
Does anyone know when they want to start implementing Echo project recommendations? I have outside offer as facility engineer and don’t want to leave before we are told. Is it worth waiting? What are pros and cons? I am sure many people have weighed... read more
